I may be changing jobs soon, and the new job will change from 10 minutes on back roads to an hour in congestion. 15mpg’s in the Tundra won’t cut it.

I want something nice. Like date night with friends nice. I want the lowest possible miles, 130k max, prefer 60-80k. I will be dealing with snow and ice, so as much as I want RWD it’s probably not practical. I prefer a manual, but commute. I want something engaging to drive. Newer than 2005. Cost: $5-10k. And most of all, I want 30+ mpg.

I’ve seen Regals and Lacrosse in that range, but want to see what reasonable suggestions Oppo has for the best commuter cars...
