    Suggest the Ultimate ~$20k used car (other than CTS)

    My buddy is looking for slightly used car (03, 04) for around $20k. It has to have amenities and a unique personality. Something with about 30k miles. If it can't be the CTS (he'd love one, but can't locate one), what would it be?

    Would he consider going for a 2002 ETC? Great car.

    Good point. If you get that with the leather package, it's got the GLE's auto climate control and heated leather seats!

    My buddy had a 2001 Maxima SE. It was an automatic but the thing was fully loaded. BOSE stereo system, automatic A/C, heated seats, etc. but he beat on that thing all the time and that thing kept on ticking. I love those cars to death but I would need a stick shift and not an automatic. But they had a nice ride and had some good pick up as well. But if I had to choose then I would definatly have to have a 2002-03 SE fully loaded with the 6 speed manual with the HID's and be that blue color with the cream colored interior

    A 02-03 Maxima SE 6 Speed or GLE is one of the cars I'm seriously thinking about buying next.

    I second that!

    How about a 1986 Porsche? They cost around $20K and smiles come standard (no, you cannot have mine).

    In all seriousness, how about a new Pontiac Solstice? A boatload of fun for under $20,000!
