Let me get this straight... You just bought an Accord, and now you want to spend $25,000 on some "luxury" car with FWD, V6, and cloth?


Basically you want to spend $25,000 so you can have 2 more cylinders in a car that is probably just as slow, and even worse handling, WITH cloth....

I know it's not what ya want to hear, but why not a new mercury Grand Marquis, you can get one without leather loaded new for under 25 grand, true it's a v8 but so what, they get good gas mileage. insurance is cheap too and there a safe car. there dependable cars and parts and service is cheap. or how about a used Lincoln LS.

ps, I could have had a V-8

It's good to see you have come to your senses. And if a luxury car didn't have leather then it could hardly be call luxurious. Plus, only a stripped, straight from the factory model would have cloth. Plus, no leather would kill the car's future resale value I would think.

2001 Lexus IS300.



Just did a search thru autotrader.com. Seems there are plenty in good condition. Highest was 25k and the lowest was 21k. I'm sure you can haggle them down.
