I would eliminate all German cars and Jaguars from the list because of frequent repairs and cost. The Ford Fiestas and Focuses have many problems, but are more European in their handling.
That Lexus IS350 caught my eye. Low price and mileage, but if you could find more (good) info you have a great deal.
The Mazdas give you great handling and reliability on a budget. I like the older 3's more than the older 6's.
Beware the 2004-2006 Nissan Maximas have widespread transmission failures.
Don't get the Jeep Compass or any Chryslers/Dodges/Jeeps etc. Terrible cars.
The 2006 Civic had a problem with the engine block exploding, but later years were fine.
I know the Camry is uncool, but it's smart to play it safe and it's comfortable.
The 2009 Chevy Malibu could be a good buy because it's newer and reliable. Main problem is failing power door locks.
2009 Fusion possibly. Reliable and newer midsize. Make sure the dashboard is not deteriorating.
