Now is a really terrible time to have to buy a car.

In the range you're looking at right now...I don't know what low mile ATSs are going for, but I'd probably want to drive one and find out. (Maybe even a sixth gen Camaro V6 1LE?) I'd probably also think about an Accord.
*i have been looking at ATS sedans. Because they are built well. And are depreciated.

**i like how you think. As always.

I was also about to recommend a Stinger... Might even be able to find a lower mileage used one for close to $30k...

These were not even in my consciousness. Looks like a nice option. I wonder if the new Mazda6 will respond to some of its specs.

It's kind of funny to have started out with the Asian models 40 years ago and ended up back with them again (after a gazillion Germans and one Swede in between).

I know. I started with Japanese (which would have been clearer), then realized the Koreans are in the mix as well. Plus, I think many of us would be partial to the Swedish models. LOL.
