The following are more observations than overt recommendations. Hondas and Toyotas have been traditionally the most reliable vehicles out on the road. But lately, Honda reliability has dropped somewhat. Some versions of Hondas are constructed in Mexico, and one model I drove seemed like the fit and finish wasn't quite up to par. The latest style of Honda Accord has been somewhat polarizing among the loyal brand owners. The new Camry is really quite nice - spunky, quite, plenty of seating space. The 2018 model is going to look quite a bit different than the 2017, so keep that in mind when you're thinking about how valuable your version will be. The 2018 looks very nice, so it could decrease the values of the 2017s. The Corolla IM presents well too; it's a converted version from the Scion brand which Toyota owned.
Kias and Hyundais have progressed to offer a fairly robust line of vehicle options which combine to make a very good value for the money. It does seem like they might wear "faster" than the Japanese cars, though. Also, gas mileage has not always been as good as advertised. They've been sued over that recently. Last month, I rode in a hybrid Elantra and was impressed with how quiet it was - as well as fuel efficient. Not on par with other hybrids, but commendable, just the same.
The Impreza sedan has become more refined in the last iteration. It returns very good gas mileage, and technology allows it to run in FWD most of the time, switching to AWD only when needed. My biggest complaint with Subarus has been the exterior paint quality and the lack of a solid feel in the doors. But all safety tests indicate they are some of the safest vehicles out there.
Mazdas have a great sporty feel and are equally reliable. Gas mileage is great too. You might find that they're a little tight interior-wise. They're geared (sometimes) more for a sporty fit for the driver seat than space.
The last one that might be of interest is the Jetta. I'm not sure if the Eos is still manufactured, but it's the same platform. The Eos is more of a two seater + 2, but has a nice retracting hardtop. The Jetta, though, has become much more refined over time - especially in the transmission. It's nearly seamless and comes from the technology that the DSG transmission offers. Fuel mileage is very good. Nearly as good as the diesels were. They present an opportunity, price-wise, because the the market was flooded with VW diesels that were bought back from the owners (huge lawsuit over manipulating fuel emissions software). When a manufacturer has too many used cars on the market, it brings down the prices of all of the new models, which would be good for you. Still, while the 4 cylinder engine (not a 5 anymore) is reliable, I still have found Audis and VWs to have electronic problems long term.
I have a blog (onefastdriver.blogspot.com) that you can take a look at if you care to. It has a review of cars that I've actually owned. I don't get paid for it nor am I sponsored by anyone.
