It costs a little bit more than that here in Europe, but I'm quite happy with my Volvo C30. Otherwise a WV Golf, or the new Scirocco. I don't think the Lancia Delta and the Citroen C4 are sold in the US, alas.

Also, should I not bother getting keyless entry for the Corolla LE? What is wrong with it?

In CA, they let me drive the car off but demanded proof of insurance within 3 days or so. I think technically you are supposed to have proof of insurance before you buy the car but with this market, they fudge.

The keyless entry on the Civics are nice, the Subaru ones are complete ass. I seriously am thinking about getting a third party one. I mean, you have to click the thing 15x to open the rear doors. It's very stressful. I'd get keyless though, because then you never lock your keys in your car.

You are supposed to ride in one, not drive one, I thought?

Nah...they're comfy in front too. Plus mine isn't black, or a fleet vehicle...so I can drive mine without looking like a limo driver.

Probably helps that people can see you over the steering wheel.

Wouldn't be averse to going old school.

Yeah, imagine parallel parking that thing? I also vote for the Mazda 3 or 6. My last car was a steel grey 2006 Mazda 3. Bought it new, nicely equipped (upgraded sound system, wheels, sunroof, etc.) for about $20k I think. Daily driver to my job (where, yes, I wore a suit every day). Sold it to a co-worker about 3 years later with 30,000 miles for $12k. It was a fun and youthful car at least. I enjoyed driving it. Now I take an aging, rusty 1960's streetcar to work. :P

Does anyone have thoughts on the 350z? I am seeing them in my area 2004ish with 35-40k miles for around 15 grand...seeming like too good of a deal to pass up.
