Advice: Best Car around 22K

My brother is going to be purchasing a car this weekend and he has a budget of $22,000. He has just finished his freshman year at College and we just sold his Altima the other day. He really wants to buy the Mazda 3 SP23 edition (Navi, Leather, Moonroof, sport susupension, xenon, 17s, etc.). I think it is a pretty nice car. The college is about 4 hours away and the car will always be parked outside a college community. My question for you all is, if you only had 22k to spend on a brand new (he is not considering anything used) what would you buy.

I'd actually also recommend the Scion tC. He can get it very nicely equipped for under his $22K budget and, if he's interested, use the money he'd save on TRD upgrades. Just my two cents.

No, Hondas have I4, porsches and subarus use horizontally opposed, flat engines.

Hell no to the Scion TC. That car is a JOKE. Straight up chick car and its ugly as hell.

As a guy, i'd feel embarassed to drive that.

I'd take the money and use it towards a better car. Not something you'll regret after a few months.

Okay, then-

Set aside the aesthetics and post exactly why the Scion tC is a "joke".
