I don't plan on buying a new car anytime soon, but when it does come time I have a few choices on my mind.
2000-2005 Chevy Impala: I love these, they are roomy, stylish, simple cars, and the build quality seems good as I have yet to ride in any with squeaks or rattles.
2001 Olds Aurora 4.0: Nicely styled cars, v8 engine, cheap resale, but I have heard of build quality issues, much more than impala, also smaller interior than impala.
1998-1999 Olds Aurora: I drove one awhile ago in a parkign lto at work, seemed liek a really nice car, very solid. The only thign I didn't like were some cheap interior parts (material coming off pillars, steering controls, etc)
2000 Lexus ES300 : Yes, they are very expensive still, but I really like them!
