    I'd recommend the Mazda 3, formerly the Mazda Protege. I'm sure you get a Protege in your price range.

    Saab made great aeroships

    I think I've decided to keep the Focus I have now and just get some tires that keep me from sliding off the road. Maybe new intake, exhaust and suspension, too.
    Oh, and tinted windows - I feel like I'm driving a fish tank.

    And even a four wheel SUV is ungainly,

    So a four wheel sedan or wagon is perfect,

    Such as the Audi.
    Mmmm. I love Audi. I hope to get one someday. All wheel drive for the win.

    I make it a point to never buy anything that is more than 5 years old (anymore). Too many reliability issues except maybe for the Honda that I had. If you can afford it, a used Volvo turbo might be a good car but it wouldn't have the stick. Mustangs are great fun and plentiful but suck in the winter. One issue to be aware of with some sportier cars is the need for two sets of wheels/tires - one for winter and one for the rest of the year, which adds to your cost. Example - I just spent $1600 on snow tires (actually an entire set of wheels) for my 911 a couple of months ago.

    I think Argus is choosing wisely... Ford's now ranked #2 behind Toyota in perception of quality.

    I'd rather pay to fix a car that doesn't have payments and save the payment money to either pay cash or have a big down payment on the next one vs.

    Cars = money pit, they get us from point a to point b.

    Plan on driving the one I've got for a few more years, then trading for something like a Fusion or a Malibu.

    Having spent the past three years supplying the local "Stealership" of Mercedes Benz with outrageous sums of cash, I'd be thrilled to drive a Focus instead.

    You are so right.
