In that price range, I'd get an Audi A6 Avant, but I'm old. C6 A6 sedan isn't bad at all if you want flash and comfort.
Not much else can touch it for the money. There are some great deals on used MB, like the E class....under $5000
Those are cars youll want to keep, vs a Focus or whatever.
Keeping in your price range, Acura TSX is a good middle of the road choice, nice like the Germans, but Honda underneeth. The 2.4 has a timing
chain....pretty much bulletproof and the trans is super easy to service. Those cars had inclusive maintenance when new, so guaranteed they got the
basic services verses an equivalent Honda. I drove both, owned a new Accord and a RSX. See, a premium model lives a easier life and doesn't get so
I'd be happy to post some for-examples.
I owned about 20 Audis and close to 10 VWs. I have a 2013 allroad w/APR near 400 ft-lbs on ethanol. Wife has our 2nd new Tiguan a 2017, previous was a
2010 w/APR and 6M....kept it 5 years. Mom has a Jetta Sportswagen, 2011 after driving her 1996 Passat 17 years. Jetta Sportswagen is nice, did I
mention I'm old? In Europe, younger people drive wagons sedans are for old men! The US market Passat gets discounted so heavily it's silly if you're
into new cars. If so, the Golf 7 is amazing for $19k new but I think a Passat can be bought for LESS. We got $5000 off out 2017 Tiguan...
