i've got a lincoln continental
Lord I don't drive slow
its got suicide doors (suicide doors)
its got suicide doors (suicide doors)
shes got three hundred horses
four-twenties under her hood
shes got three hundred horses
four-twenties under her hood
when I put that pedal down
it'll jerk your head back good
its got suicide doors (suicide doors)

i've got a deal on my lincoln
one thats really first rate

Not to rain on your parade. But, there ain't no suicide doors on a 2 door Lincoln. I do admire your thinking though.

Bulls, I'd agree with some of the other folks who recomended the german super cars. A Mercedes or BMW or even a VW. All pretty comfortable and well built.

Go with what you know. You had good luck with the Nissan, stick to it. I owned a Honda Civic and Accord for years, then jumped ship and got a Dodge Intrepid. So-so car, spent more time in the shop than any of my Hondas combined ever did and all in all, it just wasn't worth the extra money I paid for it. I went back to Hondas.

Currently own an '06 Accord and am completely satisfied. Gets ~34-36 mpg. city, 40 mpg. hwy. I really like the look of the new '08s.

Oh, and stay away from the VW Beetle.

Yeah, and unless you're a 24 year old trixie living in the city for the first time, stay away from the VW Jetta.

I have to second the Accord. I have owned many types of cars from many makers, and my 07 V6 sedan is top class. Milage is okay, but it is solid. My one friend traded in his BMW for an Accord because it was silly (according to him) to pay the insurance and maintenence for that car when an Accord was as nice and cheaper.

I was in you exact situation last year and came out to the Accord. It was 10-15K cheaper than the other cars I was looking at.

I'm partical to Hondas myself. My next vehicle will be a Honda Element (say what you want, I love the thing!).

That said, my current Malibu is a decent car. It was the first Chevy that did me proud past 100K. It's got decent interior space (for a sedan), decent (but not great) mileage and the price isn't bad.
