New or used is okay. New priced up to low 30s, or late model used, mid 20s. I am a single person so I do not need an extremely practical car but I do want one that is functional in rain and snow. I plan on owning one car. My...

Front wheel drive preferred, or all wheel drive acceptable. Looked at BMW 5 series, Mercedes E class, and Lexus GS. Still doing research.

Member5181

I'd like a small sedan that gets good gas mileage but is also fun to drive. A full array of dashboard options, i.e. Intermittent wipers, trip odometers, outside temp gauge, cruise control, etc., is important. I also want a good sound system that allows me to plug in my iPhone...

Tried a few 4 cylinder cars (Camry, Sonata) and did not like them as they lacked acceleration/pickup. Camry V6,...

My top 2 choices are the 2005 Honda Civic HX Coupe CVT Transmission and the 2005 Volkswagen Golf TDI. The main reason these are my top 2 is because of the fuel efficency these cars are supposed to get.
