So we haven't had a new car thread in a while and I haven't had a new car in a while. It looks like I've finally saved up enough and can pass on my trusty 1998 STS to my brother and get some new wheels for myself.

Up for consideration:

Infinity G37:
Spoiler:

Definitely pushing the limit of my income even if I get a good deal on a used one but it's Stale's fault because he gave me the idea and I can't resist that color on that car for some reason I can't explain. In fact I think he should have to help me with a down payment. It's only fair.

Nissan Altima Coup:
Spoiler:

Much more affordable than the Infinity but not quite as sexy. Also doesn't look as good in blue. But this I can get new and pretty tricked out and the front-wheel drive would be better for the Cleveland weather.

I've been looking at coupes because if I ever need a truck for something my dad has like 4.

Nissam Maxima:
Spoiler:

Quite a bit more car than the other two but I really like the new design.

So anyone have suggestions for other models or places to shop? I've checked Cars.com, AutoTrader.com, EbayMotors.com, and some local listings. Any other good source for finding slightly used cars I am missing here?

    i drive a 2002 Jeep Liberty. It's the only car I've ever had, I got it at the end of my junior year of highschool.

    Great ride, but sucks on gas.

    I don't like low riding cars much, or cars at all, really. I hate sitting close to the ground. That's why i like trucks/SUVs. I don't know why it makes me uncomfortable, I guess i'm just used to being above everything so it feels unnatural (I am pretty tall).

    hopefully they will come out with a fuel efficient not horrible to the environment suv or truck soon.

    I got an 06 civic ex with 31k on it about a month and a half ago. On average it has been to the shop once every one and a half weeks to fix some problem minor or major so far (two weeks ago it was a spontaneous crack in one of the cylinders--daaang). Hopefully it's done with the repairs now; I must have gotten a lemon or something 'cause I thought hondas were supposed to be reliable on the whole, and civics especially so.

    Still really like it though. Comfy, good mileage, nice satnav. Damned sight better than my old Pontiac Grand AM.

    For the same money, you could get a used 2004-06 GTO

    The gas mileage is gonna be worse than the the altima and probably just below the G37
