What car would you get for under $23,000.00?

That is the limit that I can spend on a new car and it must be new to qualify for the bank loan from my bank, so used cars are out of the question. I plan on owning the car for 6 years and then possibly passing it on to my daughter when she gets her license. I haven't been keeping up on cars that are out there or prices since I'm living in Germany right now, but before I come back to the states it is possible to get a Mini Cooper S for $21,000.00 and have it shipped back no charge through the military. What else is in this price range?

Take a look at the Ford Crown Victoria/Mercury Marquis. You might be able to find one if you shop carefully for $23,000. This is a pretty decent car. All those cops can't be wrong . . . and even they can't tear 'em up.

I have a '00 with about 125,000 miles on it. It is top of the line, all leather, all power with handling package which gives you dual exhaust and sway bar. Paid about $20K Plan on passin' it on to my daughter next year. Bein' a good sportibker, I put Bilstein shocks and a bigger sway bar on the rear. Handles pretty good now. Oh yeah, gets a little over 20 mpg on the highway, 108 mph top speed (governed). Police version with same engine will do 129 mph (governed)

Yep, pretty decent car. Run into one sometime. Think outside the box. To be honest, I don't drive it much, it is the wife's car. My "car" is a '93 Chevy one ton pick-up that I have put 300 miles on in the last six months. I've put about 20,000 miles on my motorcycles in the last six month, about 12,000 of that in the month of June alone so I guess I ain't much an authority on gay cars. I'll leave that to you.
