I'd buy a used Buick LeSabre and use the spare cash on guns and ammo! If you really need to spend the whole wad buy a new Buick Park Avenue. GunLvr

Nissan Maxima

I second the maxima or a 4 door accord V6. Either with a six speed manual tranny would be an excellent car. Performance, reliabilty, and nice rides all the way around.

Personally, the new Subaru WRX STi. [;)] But then again, we also have a '01 Jetta GLX and will soon have a Tahoe or Suburban, and maybe a beater p/u for new farm chores. If you want something in the entry level luxury class. I would look at the Lexus IS300 or the BMW 3 series. The Maxima is now OFFICIALLY fugly...

Acura TLs Fast, great handling, reliable(it's a Honda), comfortable and has a fabulous sound system. It's a bargain in that price range. I bought a 2002 for my wife a year ago and have 22k miles on it. She loves it and I enjoy whenever I'm driving in it.

I second the Maxima or the WRX, nice cars. A Honda Accord would be nice too. Can you get the Mitsubishi Lancer for 32k?

Yeah....I love those cars. The coupe is a ton better looking, but it's hard to argue with a ton of luxury with a nice stout engine. One of my co-workers drives one -- she loves it. She wished she had waited and gotten the coupe and the manual.

Why? You're not seriously going to drop $32K in cash on a CAR are you? I earn a lot of money, but the only way I would ever drop that kind of cash on something that depreciates at the rate of a car, is if I had about $10 mil laid up in the portfolio -- which I don't. Soooo... it begs back to my first question. Why? [rolleyes]

[LOL][LOL] Do you realize you can get an Accord or Maxima witrh a faster 0-60? There's a reason they're pulling the plug on that thing after a year and LESS THAN A HUNDRED sold. hehe As for my suggestions: BMW 3 series, Audi A4, Saab 9-3, Cadilac CTS, Subaru WRX STI, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Volvo S60 (I think) otherwise the S40, NICE VW Jetta and through in the rest of the Japanese cookie cutter mobiles. Unfortunately IMHO there are no decent American made sedans.

I was out looking at new cars with the sister, making sure she didnt get scammed, and I checked out a new Monte Carlo SS. Those things look cake!

I second the Acura. I bought my wife one about 8-9 months ago to replace her 12 yr-old Honda Accord. Love the car. Great power, great handling. Despite having TWICE the horsepower of the Accord, it gets the same mileage on a trip, since the engine with the 5-speed auto just loafs along at highway speed. If it holds up like her old car, it will be a great bargain.

Maruader? Are you kidding? Big ass slow piece of shit. IS300? For the money there are lots of cars out there that are faster and nicer. The is300 is behind the times, as it was the day it debuted.

Yeah, the EVO is nice -- it just beat out the WRX in the Car&Driver comparo.... I'd rather take the WRX STi and have the dealer swap out the standard WRX spoiler and wheels for the gold wheels and picnic table that it comes with. Anybody know if the EVO is coming with the driver controlled center diff? I found out that the Scoobie is coming with one - DSSC. Would love to make it more rear bias than 50% for the times when I'm on the pavement.

If $32K is your total drive-out including your tax, title and license, then you're looking at a car with a price of around $28K. My recommendations: Audi A4 Acura TL BMW 323i (but I don't think you can get one for that price) [bold]Infiniti G35[/bold] Yeah baby! At that price, do not get a Mitsubishi product, a Subaru product, a Toyota product, a Honda product, a Mazda product, and sure as hell don't get a GM product! Do NOT get the Pontiac Grand Prix. Eewww... BTW, nothing screams White Trash louder than a Camaro or Trans Am Firebird. If you drive one of those, you are required to have a mullet and a big fat wallet sticking half-way out of the rear pocket of your Wrangler jeans.

Cars are a crappy investment; but they make people happy. Don't buy an expensive car if your intent is to resell it. Buy an expensive car if the features and styles make you feel good and give you enjoyment. Much like buying a $3000.00 pistol.

[>:/] I'd get a used VR-4 or a new STi or a new EVO before ever getting: An A4......S4, hell yeah, but not at $32000 and NOT used -- too many turbo failures. A 323? Please...[rolleyes] I guess if you like slow in your cars, then that is for you. 330xi, maybe, but again not at $32000. Acura TL? You mean the Honda Accord on 'roids? Drives like brick. The Type-S CL is sweet, but that is two doors. The G35 is a kick ass car, and the value is excellent, but I guess it all depends on what segment you want to be in. I like fast and utilitarian....I have the WRX.

Well said. Even if the car gives me a smile, though, it still hurts to know I'm married to it because of its depreciation.

The only really "sports" car in the bunch is the Bimmer. Don't know what Red_beard is looking for, but RWD (or maybe AWD) is the only way to go if performance is the goal.
