If you're going for something newer, something sleek, I recommend the 2012 Kia Optima, that's the car I have and I love it!!!! It has everything. Navigation, backup camera, heat and cool seats, sirius xm radio, 2 moon/sun roofs (some type of roof anyway) a huge trunk and an eco button, not to mention it is gorgeous (mine's white) and I got it for around 25-30 grand.
Is this your first car ?? Cause if it is I would recommend a Honda. Easy to drive , they have a simple clutch and there quick for beginner car. But if not go with a Mazda Miata/mx5. Sports car and its a convertible
