Buick, I have been looking at maybe buying a Buick Regal, they went down in price and they look very sharp.



What mid-size car are you looking at?

I try to buy American and it seems this Buick is nicer than a Honda Accord or Neisan Maxima. Of course they have better re-sale value although Buick's ain't too shabby.

If I was in the market right now for a midsize, I'd take a hard look at the new Kia Optima. Can buy one new with some decent options for around $17K, or lease it for 3 years and total payments of under $5K ($3K down, $50 a month).

I like inexpensive cars with nice warranties. And it's made in America.

I used to be a strictly toyota guy, but they drove me away with all the problems they were having a few years back. My last few from them were not up to their usual standards. Grew too fast and let their quality slip IMO.

Buick?

No.

THIS is a real car.



Seriously though stay away from Buick if you can. Check out the Ford Fusion and the Kia Optima.

Still driving around my 1999 Civic. Runs like a champ. All I've done is change the oil, had the brake pads replaced twice (second time was two weeks ago), replaced the battery once, and got a new timing belt at 10 years just to be safe.

Also have my 2004 Toyota Matrix which I bought in Oct. of 03. Done nothing to it but change the oil.

(My brother's driving around my dad's 1994 Toyota Camry. Think just oil changes, battery, brakes and timing belt on that one. We've been a Honda/Toyota family for a couple of decades now and I can't ever see buying anything else.)

I think it depends on the GM model. I've owned Tahoes since 94 when they had the 2 doors. Never had any problems and plowed through snow on a consistent basis. Watching the weekend warriors get tangled up in their chains on the side of the road.

THis. I have a Honda Accord I'm selling now. My wife and I drove it for nearly 20 years now, and it's been a great vehicle with very, very little time in the shop.

The problem is, most people can't tell which is which. Those that think they know what an American company is often are mistaken. As are those that think they know what a foreign company is.

More "foreign" car companies are opening up factories in the US than "domestic" companies, with more employment of US folks than ever before.

And to the "well, all of x's profits go back to Japan/Korea/etc." arguments, this too is false. These are all public companies. The profits go to the shareholders.

Compact - The new Ford Focus is amazing. Used 2012's for under 20k fully loaded.

Mid Size - The new impreza is incredible...AWD and 34 highway. GREAT leases. The sonata and optima are both great values as well, and in terms of luxury, it's pretty tough to beat an infiniti for their price/perfomance combination.

I will say this, there are a BUNCH of great deals out there to be had right now...fun time to be in the car business.

Actually, we'll 'support' ourselves first, if that happens to be an "American" vehicle, so be it, if not, so be it.

I think the new Kia's are sharp, but I would have to remove the Kia logo from the car.

As far as the thread was about affordable midsize cars. Audis and BMWs need not apply!! lol

Yeah. 2 years ago, I bought another Honda Accord to get me back and forth to/from work....2010 EX-L V6. Got it for $23K.....

I would suggest the internet buying. They usually offer you a no-haggle quote. And this price beat anything I found anywhere.....I even went to the largest Honda dealer in New England....they claim to "never lose a sale due to price". They wouldn't even match the quote......

Last year (1 year after I bought it)....the trade-in Kelly Blue Book value was still higher than what I paid.

Yeeehaaaa.

I have been reading that the quality of American cars has never been better than it is now. That is a great statement. I'm glad to see we can compete with other countries. the 80's American cars got ****ty, the 90's the Japanese passed us and in the 2000's we started to make our comeback. I feel we are close to the same level as the Japanese and Koreans on many aspects. The durability of American cars has gotten much better and so has the resale value.

**** that noise. If they weren't such ****ty companies in the first place they wouldn't need government bailouts

Let them fail

Not to mention they fact that GM is about American as McDonald's .. They are multinational companies, they don't give a **** about this country, only $$$ and the bottom line
