So the maintenance/ cost of parts for an Acura, Infiniti, or Lexus is similar to Honda, Nissan, and TOyota? IE cost of keeping up the car wouldnt be as wild as getting something German?

oh ok cool, because I use to wonder how the whole hood was whipping Acura Legends, so I never looked at Acura as being a Luxury brand, but more so the Premium line for Honda if that makes sense.

So would the 100k mile Rule that dudes give buying BMW or Mercedes used apply for Acura and Infiniti? I seen a few G35s and TLs and TSXs for 14-15k with  45- sub 70k miles,but of course I could get one with a few more miles for less, is it as big as a red flag?

oh ok, seen some A6s and A4s on Auto Trader for like 6-8 stacks, with 80-130k miles.

So is an Infiniti G35 with 100k+ on it good? being that it is Japanese

truck wise...

Toyota Tacoma >>>>>>>>>>>>>> all other trucks.

They are tanks, no problems, good on gas, and the four door prerunners are practical for truck purposes/family purposes and they look good

Infiniti G35s are solid, but stay around 100k. Too much over that and you're pushing it. Try and look for one that isn't modded, as those ones are usually driven hard.

Now what would you consider to much over?  I pretty much want a whip that will last me the next 3-5+ yrs. If that.

My vote is Toyota. Ive had 3 Toyota's and have had no issues at all. Currently I'm in an 07 Camry SE V6 and I love it. Plenty of speed, looks good, reliable and good on gas. Can't ask for more than that.

Now what would you consider to much over?  I pretty much want a whip that will last me the next 3-5+ yrs. If that.

At around 10k, I'd say you could probably get one on average with about 100-120k miles. This is just a rough estimate, based on what I've seen on eBay. The G35s around me (Boston area), are usually more expensive - I just saw a Black sedan 2004, with 102k miles going for $11k on craigslist.

They could be cheaper depending on where you live. Also, it depends whether you want a sedan or not, an automatic or manual. An automatic sedan is probably the cheapest (Manuals are rarer, sedans are cheaper), I think you said you wanted a sedan.

They could probably last you until 180k+ depending on how you treat it, and whether you mod it or not. To be honest, if you want a car lasting you 3-5 years, you should either get one new, or one that has been used very slightly. If you drive around alot, the miles will pile up and naturally the car won't last as long.

Your best bet is to get the Honda - accord or civic. I'm a huge fan of the fit, cause of the space and style, but a lot of people don't seem to like it. Since you plan to keep the car for 3-5 years, you should really get a cheaper, more reliable car. Infinitis are great cars, but Honda I'd say is better.

The Hondas in my price range are either kinda uggo, or would have alot of miles, Can it be officially said that current Hondas have the same reliability of their 90s counter parts?

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm looking to buy an 03-07 Accord coupe, but I'm also looking at Camry's, Altimas and the Acura TSX.

The problem for me is not choosing which car but which insurance company to go with. This would be my first car and I'm getting quotes ranging from $2500 (Esurance) to $6000 (Geico/State Farm).
I know it's based on where you live, your age and all that but what would be a reasonable price nowadays. BTW I'm 28 and live in NYC.
