As many of you know, I’m looking to replace my ‘01 Lexus LX470, which turned out to be more of a money pit than a buying someone else’s project boat. I’m looking to replace it with a sedan, wagon, or hatch. Budget is around $6500 firm. I want comfort, at least 18/25mpg, and reliability, and low running costs, so I’d like to keep milage no higher than about 120k. I don’t want some huge old barge like a Lincoln Town Car. Other than that, I basically just ask that it’s in pretty good shape with an interior that isn’t black or grey, and that it have enough power to safely merge onto a highway and cruise comfortably at 80mph. What would you suggest?

Van for your time.
