So my roommate is finallly sick of the issues her Land Rover Discover II has been giving her and is buying a new car. I took her car shopping today and the three cars that have caught her eye so far are:

Honda Accord
Ford Fusion
VW Passat TDI

Her main concerns are fuel economy and reliability but she does want something that drives nicely. Sportiness isn't a big concern but she does appreciate it. Her budget is $25-$30k and she doesn't mind buying a certified preowned vehicle. What are your thoughts on the three she likes so far and are there any others that should be on the list?
