So I'm unbelievably angry with my Jeep Commander as I just went off warranty (38months of ownership, 39000 total miles) and found out today that my transfer case is going out ($1000 rebuild or $2200 replacement), so I'm getting this repaired and I'm trading this beast in and want to switch it up. My wife has a VW Jetta and I love driving it, so have decided to go a similar route. Right now I'm deciding among these cars: Volvo C30 R-Design Volkswagen GTI Subaru WRX Mazda Speed3 Curious if anyone has advice or insight on these cars, particularly the Volvo because they currently offer the 5 Year full Warranty and 5 years free scheduled maintenance. Or if you have a suggestion of a vehicle I'm not considering, feel free to post. I want a smaller car that gets good mileage, but is also fun to drive.
