My next, NEXT car.......

Currently drive the Kia Sportage which is a short term drive....maybe 5 more months.
My next car will be a 2006 Infiniti Q45. Prices are in the $9k range for 100k miles. These cars come from owners who probably had them serviced at the dealer and drove them easy. This is absolutely the best value in a 4 door car currently in the USA. A similar Lexus is $20k. The reliablitiy is VERY high, having personally driven one to 270k miles.

But my NEXT, NEXT (5 years) car.....

2014 Audi A8L TDI!!!!

"The 3.0 turbo-diesel makes plenty of torque—no surprise Still, the diesel overcomes inertia with authority, and reaching 60 mph from rest in 6.4 seconds isn’t exactly slow for a vehicle that pegs the scales at 4585 pounds. Thank goodness for the weight-saving aluminum-intensive structure,"

"The EPA ballparks 24 mpg city and 36 highway for the TDI versus 18/28 for the 3.0 gas "

MetroMPG: "Get the MPG gauge - it turns driving into a fuel & money saving game."

First: ScangaugeII

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!
