What would you get for 30K?

If you had to make a decision what car would you get for 30K?

Requirements:

Could be brand new or 1-2 years used.
Relatively reliable.
Doesn't need to have all the options.
Could be a sedan or SUV
Not your average honda accord
Car with some character

Not reliable or 1-2 years old, but:

CLS 550
Range Rover

Would probably go back to a BMW after a 1-2 years of owning either.

x2. reliable forget the euro. I myself concluded if you only have one car euro are not the way to go. Have a couple of cars to juggle around sure yes

IMO the smartest move to do would be to buy a brand new WRX or STI you can buy them for a song. Solid cars brand new , good performance.
