Interesting discussion, and I am doing the same thing as Lee - looking for a first car for my new-driver son. He can drive my A4 with 6-speed but prefers an automatic. At this point in his life, he's viewing a car as a point A to point B type of thing. So we've been looking at Accords, Camrys, etc., although we drove a very nice Volvo S70 GLT on Saturday that will merit strong consideration. Thought we had an Accord found until I ran the VIN through Carfax and found it had a salvage title, which the owner neglected to mention to me.
I've been avoiding Audis mainly because he will paying for all the maintenance and I don't really have time to do any work on my OWN cars, let alone his.
