Hello everyone! Some of you guys have noticed, I haven't been much online within the last 2 months...I got in a pretty bad car accident (50 MPH, I flipped a GMC truck with my Infiniti), I'm kinda OK, still sore. It could have been worse, thank God it wasn't. Anyway, my Infiniti lived a long life and died at 143k mi, front end is completely gone, and it's not worth repairing. I am now looking for a new DD. Budget is $10-15k. Must be 4 door, under 100k miles (may consider up to 110k depending on a price). prefer 6-cylinder, as it will be carrying 4 adults +1 car seat (my son). I test drove a few different ones, just to see what's out there. I am not considering a Toyota Camry or another work horse in that range, as these days those cars are way overpriced and are boring to drive. I kinda want RWD. Also, must be reliable, as I drive 15-17k mi a year. Anyway, I test drove the following: -Infiniti G35/G35x - both were fast and exciting, very nice ride, and is pretty roomy inside, compared to E46 BMW. Defenetely on my list. -infiniti M45 (2003-2004 classic body style). I remember when these "muscle cars with brain" first came out and always wanted one...So far I found one with very low mi (57k) in excellent condition for a good price. I drove it and loved it, firm ride, very powerful, has voice activated controls (no navi) and heated and cooled seats which is very nice feature as I sweat like a horse during summer. Number one on my list, I want this even more then G35. I do wonder how is reliability on these cars? Any known major problems/something to look out for? -Lexus LS 430 - very sot ride, kinda like watery mashed potatoes...I did not like it. -Lexus GS 300 - firmer ride, and comfortable. Defenetely better then LS430, but I feel I'm not getting much of a car for my money, kinda expensive. -Lexus RX300 - camry on high heels...didn't like it at all. -Infiniti Q45 (1999) - nice and comfortable ride, very powerful, but feels outdated, I need something more modern. -Audi Allroad - always wanted to test one of these babies out. I really like the styling, and the options, ride is nice, but not very impressive. I did like it's air suspension, very nice feature, but it takes an eternity to lift up a car...also with MPG figures 14/19 and known that it is LEAST reliable Audi car, I'm putting this on a back list. -Nissan Murano - nice ride, very stable to SUV of its size, however not very impressive. Also CVT transimission scares me, if it breaks, there is no fix for it, and new tranny is $5k. -Infiniti FX35 - drove it and loved it. It is very close to BMW X5 ride, very nice. But it is kinda expensive @ $20k for a daily driver. -Mercedes C230 - nice firm ride, but I wished for a more comfortable ride -Mercedes E320 - I was VERY IMPRESSED with it, it gives you amazing ride, which I absolutely loved. It is firm and supportive, but not as hard as on my wife's E46 325Ci with a sport package. Ride quality is closer to my X5. I really liked it, but wonder about reliability/dependability of a car, as well as cost of maintenaince (air suspension). -Mercedes S500 - I was very impressed. Very soft ride, that is very supportive. And it gives you a lot of space inside. What I am scared off is car is equipped with TOO MANY SENSORS, just taking it or a spin resulted ABS light to come on, as well as brake assist. Kinda scares me. Also, my cousin had one of these and air suspension blew up on him, which cost him $3k. There is NOTHING compares to this ride, but do I really need this for a daily driver? I am planning to drive VW GTI ( I know, it's small) as well as Passat, Nissan Pathinder/Frontier on Monday. Is there anything I'm missing? What would you get within my budget/needs as your daily driver?
