I didn't want to hijack the other thread, and I have a different question - I'm looking at spending about $25k on a car, but would go up to the 35k range if there's an appreciable difference in quality over that price range. I don't feel compelled to buy a G35 or a BMW or something for the brand.
My biggest concern is to have a durable, high-safety, low-cost maintenance car that will last for the next 6-10 years (or at least keep its resale value). Suggestions? How about how to best negotiate with dealerships?
Website/further reading recommendations are much appreciated - I know there are plenty of resources out there, but not which ones are good.
