    Looking for a new car

    I was going to get a coupe, but have decided to go with a sedan for its practicality.
    I have these in mind:
    Chevy Cruze
    Honda Accord
    Mitsubishi Lancer GTS

    Anybody have any experience with these?
    I'd like to stay around $20,000.
    Obviously, the Accord is probably the most reliable.
    The Chevy Cruze gets great MPG.
    And the Mitsubishi Lancer looks sweet.

    I can't decide. HELP!! Any other sporty sedans that I should take a look at?
    I think I'll add the Kia Optima to the list too.

    Re: Looking for a new car

    What ever you get, if you have issues stay away from CarX in Ames. I have a simple issue with my break line and they tried to tell me I needed new Calipers and Brake pads. Glad my Old man taught me a thing or to about cars. Would have cost me 1200 bucks.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    That one crossed my mind, too. Looks like it is getting really good ratings.
    The only thing holding me back from that one is the looks. They aren't bad, but maybe a little too standard looking for my taste.

    Another one that has crossed my mind. I love the AWD, and still gets good MPG.

    Yeah, if it was a little more sporty looking, it would probably be near the top of my list.
