Honda Accord. Great cars. They last forever and have great resale value.

I bought a new Accord in March, LX trim. It's pretty much base model but it has a ton of features. It rides nice and has decent power for a 4 cylinder. Been averaging 400 miles a tank normal every day driving which comes out to be 30mpg and trips to the gas station about every two weeks. I have yet to find a reason to regret buying it.

If your winter weather sucks:
Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited squeaks by at just under $30K (careful shopping should help even more.) The flat 6 should have enough power to keep you entertained.

We have an 2.5 Outback and it handles better than you'd expect (the lower slung Legacy should be noticeably better.) The Flat 4 engine isn't exactly stunning, but it does ok. Subaru interiors come a long way in recent years (seriously, worlds away from just a few years ago,) you owe yourself a look. Subies also have a reputation for longevity.

Hyundai and Kia are almost the same company as well, so the Sonata is the same frame as the Optima just slightly different interior and options.
Yeap Brother has a Optima, it sucks !.................

Here's my .02. I just bought a car after starting out right where the OP is. I use my personal car for work and drive anywhere from 20k to 30k miles a year. I have to have 4 doors that will fit a couple customers comfortably in the back. My brother works for GM and can get me a car for a really good price. BUT, he doesn't recommend their cars! LOL. Anyway, I have had many Honda's and Toyota's with zero problems. So I was thinking V6 Camry or Accord and I am good to go. Then I noticed a local deal on 2013 Toyota Avalons. It's bigger, really smooth and has a nice V6. They are $5000 off around here right now so you can buy one from just under $30k up to the high 30's depending on what model you get. But even the basic ones are very nice.

Subaru Legacy Outback

Mazda 6

Ford Taurus

And of course....

Honda Accord!

The Chrysler 300 is also quite nice and a hoot to drive.

What did you do, just give up on having a front valance? Mine is stock height, and I already have a list of parking lots with tire stops that are too high.
