Since I’m at 205k miles my G37 and it’s got some needed but moderately expensive maintenance coming up, I’ve been thinking about selling it. I’ve had a couple of offers of $4800 that I’ve been tempted to go for. With that being said what would be the best replacement for $7000 or less?
I have an 80 mile commute 6 days a week. Must be good on the highway.
Must be reliable.
Nothing older than 2003.
Fuel economy isn’t a huge deal, but nothing worse than 18 mpg highway on regular and 22 mpg on premium.
The 3 categories of cars I like are sporty (Miata, MR2, Pontiac Solstice, etc), highway cruiser (Infiniti M45, Lexus LS430/460, etc), and off-road (Lexus GX470, Isuzu Vehicross, etc).
Other cars that don’t fit into those categories that I like include the turbo Acura RDX and Lexus SC430, among many others.
Given those requirements, what car would Oppo pick?
