    What will it be?

    Very tough to decide, all similarly powered, similarly equipped.

    Anyone have one of these?

    We (my family) have a 1993 Acura (Honda) Legend at 202K miles that runs splendidly (except for a seeping HG issue, which is due to fix).

    We also have a 1999.5 Nissan Pathfinder LE that has been giving us issues, mostly with the transmission, since about 2003. It has about 175K miles on the ticker now.

    Finally, we have a 2005 Lexus ES330 that has been trouble-free so far. However, it's used in limited portions, meaning it's not expected to go through the rough. About 30K miles on it.

    My uncle had a 1990 Toyota Camry that lasted his family until about 1999 or 2000. It still worked well when they traded it off for another Toyota.

    I don't know anything about Mazdas.
    Ride more.

    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    I've loved my Accords over the years, but the new one lost some of its driving spirit. They used to be a bit more sporty, but the new one drives more like the Camry. The Altima is probably the best drivers car now of the group.

    That's really surprising! From what I saw, they redesigned their coupe so that it was sportier...that sucks to hear.

    The Altimas are definitely impressive, but I don't think I could get another Nissan unless it's cheap; the common cars depreciate extremely fast, and the parts wear at about the same rate.

    Go over to Freysinger's and talk to Hector at Mazda. I don't know if Faulkner has the same maintenance deal, but I have been very satisfied both by the program and the service at Freysinger's. My CX-7 drives circles around just about anything else I've ever driven, and it's a crossover. Daughter has a Mazda 3 and loves it too. 6 is a little nicer than the 3. If you haven't driven one, I'd suggest doing so.

    Out of those, a Toyota. But I wouldn't buy any of those options to start with.

    If i had to pick from that list, i'd go with the Mazda 6.

    If i could branch out a bit, i'd go for a Subaru Legacy.

    Hmmm, Mazda seems very motivated to get rid of the '08's. I suppose the 09 model change has something to do with that...

    Since the poll is in Foo, it's now in the realm of possibilities.

    Equally equipped cars for roughly equal prices...

    Why wasn't there a "throw the dice" option?

    Other than the "I like the looks" or the unsubstantiated "Brand Z is better" what is the real difference?

    I'll tell you. You have to ask one additional question... Which one offers the best color?

    Doh! Probably explained somewhere in the thread, which I obviously did not read. Given what you've stated, I'd go with the Accord. Nice car and extremely dependable. Maintenance costs aren't too bad either. I'm basing this on my Honda Civic which I have been very pleased with and a freinds Accord that is really very nice.
