I would look at the Golf (non GTI and no I will not call it a Rabbit) and the Jetta TDI, I am biased as I am a VW fan.

This is the route I'd take in that price bracket. Either that or a used Lexus. Otherwise, I generally agree with what Turboman's been saying. Am I the only one shocked by the fact that people are actually endorsing the purchase of a Kia?

I would definitely get a slightly used car (1-5 years old) No point in paying for something inferior just because it's new.

Get an off-lease G35

Infinities look ugly to me though --- right now they have this unsightly large ass, and they change their style so often that I never recognize them. I'll try to hit the Subaru dealership sometime, but once again, why hood scoops?

Just don't get a G35 coupe. That is the original douche-bag car. Comes with a free fart can exhaust and a complimentary Affliction t-shirt. Think about it this way: how many times have you seen a grown man driving a G35? cricket. cricket. If you're an up and coming lawyer you won't go wrong with a CPO 3-series. Free maintenance is a real plus that you should factor into your price comparisons. See a thousand guys driving to work in the morning in 3-series wearing suits and none of them look out of place. Sure, not the most unique car (which is a good thing compared to say, a look at my hood scoops boy racer homo Lesbaru WRX), but they are fun to drive.

Yes, I definitely want a grown man car. Think Audi, except I don't have the money. It's funny since a friend of mine recently sold his G35.

Yep, I could see an early E90 3-series for that budget. Personally, I'd be shopping for a used E46 M3, ideally a 2003 or newer with the LED lights. Since the new ones came out, prices are dropping steeply.

New strategy: What about the cheapest new Corolla I can find?
post #43 of 87
I originally went to get a Corolla but they nickel and dime you. The base models don't even have automatic windows or floormats. By the time you upgrade to some standard features, it costs more than the Impreza 2.5i. I was impressed with Subaru's service too. They drove the car in the color I wanted halfway across the state to get it to me the next day. Subaru comes standard with all the basic modern features too.

Boy you got screwed by your local Toyota dealership: Corolla LE automatic has an invoice of $16100 - http://www.edmunds.com/new/2010/toyota/corolla/101140839/optionsresults.html?action=2 Subaru 2.5 with automatic has an invoice of $18400 - http://www.edmunds.com/new/2010/suba....html?action=2

Audi cars don't hold their value AT ALL. I almost bought an A8 but then looked at the used prices and it was crazy how much/quickly they drop in value. Of course I can't say much as I just bought my second Range Rover new last week and it'll be worth less than half what I paid for it in two years.
