Fellow Opponauts,

I request some assistance in suggestions for cars that my Aunt should purchase. She has few requirements and a decent budget. I've already started looking at the Ford Focus/Fusion, Mazda 3, Honda Civic/Accord/Fit - but anything else I might be missing?

$25,000 tops including all options etc.

MUST be dark navy blue/deep blue (not powder)

That's about it, though I would prefer if we could get her heated seats and maybe navigation. She has an old 90's escort now without central locking or power windows, so I want her to spoil herself a little bit on this next one...


For your time and efforts, an awesome hot rod's shifter knob that I photographed while at the last New Canaan C&C a few months ago (yes, that is a sink faucet knob)
