Yes, I've been thinking for a long time of letting go of my Secret Crush and moving on to bigger and better things. I will be making my final decision soon. :confused:

Like what?

I'd look at the WRX, Mazda3, or a Yota Taco (FR-S is just too small for my needs-> gotta have a REAL back seat, not one for legless midgets), but there really isn't that much out there that trills me right now.

Id go with a speed 3 for the the price. Interior, stereo, price, and 6 speed make it more appealable to me over the wrx atm.

I'd go either WRX, or Evo, Mazdaspeed3 can spank them on a roll.
If u want more "grown up" then BMW 335, or Audi.. Good luck -let us know what you end up with.

Crossfires are Mercedes SLKs with a prettier body. It is WAY underpriced and underappreciated. It would be a good choice for a NICE throw away car!

VWs are great, but the ones I've owned and friends have owned don't age well, at least since the old Bug-era. New, they are wonderful. 10 years on, very hit-and-miss (not as bad as a Mitsu) I'm not sure if I would get one or not.

So, what are YOU thinking Cubanix?

THANKS GUYS! I bought a 2011 Toyota Venza v6, I've always had my eye on it. My wife and I are expecting anyday now and this would a perfect family car. Dont get me wrong, my xb would of did the job but I felt it was time for change (nesting stage). Its a bit more grown up car and I've always want something more luxury...the vensa already sitting on 20" factory wheels which i love:) but later i will but on some vossen and lower it some. nothing too crazy. Thanks eveyone and I hope this website will live on! I'm a member since 2008 and it was a nice run!

The Venza is nice. If it was me, between the 2, I would have kept the B. But, not everyone sees things the way I do. Of course, I am married (over a decade and a half) and have THREE kids, and we have been using the B as the family travel/vaca car OVER the wife's Dodge Caravan.

If you gotta bail from the B.... That Venza is a VERY nice upgrade. They're pricey as ****... almost bought one for the wife, myself. If I had, there would have been no xB for Me....

well the wife still have her 08 xb that we had used for trips and ect. Since our little in coming, I wanted something more spacious and luxury when traveling or going anywhere. I'ts def an awesome feeling when you drive it. The confort speaks for itself. PLus I've always wanted a Venza since they first came out in 09.

Good on you, on the Venza. My wife and I were car shopping last month, and I was trying to talk her into a Venza. Unfortunately she's into cars that don't look run of the mill, plus she feels the Venza looks too much like a minivan, and she hates minivans. Was pushing for a Rav4 or Mini Countryman as well. Ended up getting her a 2013 Fiat 500L, fully loaded and still 6k cheaper than a much less loaded Countryman. Been married 14 years, 3 kids as well, Her 08 xB was our(hers actually) ride around family car the last 6 years, now it's MINE!

Not what I was expecting but at least it's a Toyota.. It's surprising how fast these "small" SUVs are.. My other car is a Mazda CX9, and with 270+hp it can move!! The interesting thing is that although its a lot bigger than the XB, the XB has a bigger n more comfortable back seat.,

Enjoy the new ride.. Here's my CX9 bone stock.,

THANK YOU! and it looks awsome...

sorry about the back seat on your mazda. the Venza backseat is very roomy and doesnt feel so hollow and stiff like the xb does. It has lots of leg room . Lots more trunk space as well. :cheers:

Congrats! My wife has the RX350 which I classify as the glorified Venza! haha I still say my XB has more room in the back seats then hers but she does have the reclining back seats & cargo room which is nice!
