I had a guy pull out in front of me over the weekend, so now I'm in need of a new car. In the past, I've always bought used beaters (<$10k). Now that I've got a decent job and spend a lot more time in my car, I'd like to get something a bit nicer. I thought I'd post what I'm looking for and see if The Garage can steer me in the right direction. I know a lot of the decision is going to come down to personal tastes and how the car fits me, but I would like to get an idea of what I should be out driving to find the one that fits me best. Budget: ~$20k Model Year Range: 2010-2013 (I don't like the idea of buying new, but if there are some steals out there on new 2013 models, I would consider it.) Yearly Mileage Driven: 45k (Mostly highway so fuel efficiency is a major plus) MPG: 30+ (I will be using this car for work and I am reimbursed for every mile I drive. The better MPG I get, the more money I can pocket from my mileage reimbursement.) Size: Not too picky on this, but I am 6'2" and 235lbs so the inside has to at least feel roomy even if it is a smaller car. Trans: No preference. Last car was a manual and I enjoyed driving it, but I know that autos are easier to come by in the used car market. Cargo Space: Not really an issue. Extra space would be nice, but I know that's hard to come by with high fuel economy. Must Have Options: Leather Seats, Sirius/XM Radio, All-Metal Wheels (no plastic hub caps - I think they look tacky as hell), power windows/locks, remote keyless entry, AC, cruise control...the usual stuff. Nice to Have Options: Keyless ignition, bluetooth, 2 12V outlets accessible from the front seat I really like the Jetta TDI wagon, but those are hard to come by in my price range without going over 60,000 miles.
