Hi, About a year and a half ago, I replaced my 1998 Infiniti I-30t (Touring) sedan with a 2007 Honda Accord EX-L. It is not registered as an -L, but has all the features except the 5 speed automatic transmission. The accord is just not as much fun as the Infinity was to drive. It does not have the road feel, or feel as secure in the turns, although Yokohama tires have helped a lot. It also seems a lot bigger inside, almost too big, although the dimensions are very similar. My biggest gripe is that the trunk is so high, that backing up is only possible by using the side mirrors. Turning my head around won’t let me see the level drive behind me. Also, I have had a lot of Datsuns then Nissans over the years, and I did really enjoy my Ford Contour SE, so I am not locked into one brand,
So, I am looking to replace it with something from 2004-2008, and under 20K. Does anyone have any recommendations for a less plebeian car, but with a certain amount of reliability? A V4 would probably be ok, since I like my current 24mpg around town (mostly) mileage.
