I'd run a search down at http://autos.yahoo.com/
, plus any forums specific for each vehicle. So long as you "look or act" interested in a vehicle, dress professionally, and have your driver's license on hand, then dealers' should have no problem convincing you to take a test drive. Believe it or not, but they actually want you to test drive their vehicles.Vehicles listed in NO SPECIFIC ORDER (...or better yet, maybe looks)
: Speechless, Breath-taking
, one of the better looking vehicles on the lists as well as on the road, Flaming hot, Sex appeal
, unfortunately questionable reliability
based on track record. Interior quite compact but definitely more to my liking
in relationship to either a Honda or Camry. Dashboard lights are sporty red.160 horsepower (HP) with a V4
215 HP with a V6in terms of speed,
horsepower gives you 'speed' when you're in motion
torque gives you 'speed' and propels you in "go-mode" from a complete stop at a red light
: Same as the '6'...Speechless, one of the better looking vehicles on the lists as well as on the road, Sweet, fabulous, gorgeous
, again, unfortunately questionable reliabilty
based on track record. Dashboard lights are soothing white. A tad more spacious than the Mazda 6
but definitely less than either a Camry or Honda sedan.150 HP with a 2.0 L V4
160 HP with a 2.3 L V4
: Tops the list in terms of reliability; NEW model out in a few months (i.e. mid to late 2006), better styling overall versus the current generation. I would NOT tag a "wow factor" to the brand Camry as far as visual effects are concerned. The new release on the horizon, however, I will congratulate Toyota for bringing something a little bit more tasteful and yes I will add, finally some sex appeal. Current generation out on Toyota dealership lots, extremely quiet, smooth riding vehicle regardless of pavement
. Interior extremely spacious
, semi-luxurious interior
. A warm interior. A desirable product for the latter generation especially for the quiet and reliability factor. Bottom line: look at it this way: a Camry is either a female or male with average looks at best, but personality puts it over the edge.154 HP with a 2.4 L V4
190 HP with a 3.0 L V6
210 HP with a 3.3 L V6
: Comparably louder than a camry
when vehicle is 'on,' parked at dealership. No comment on ride quality; no first hand experience but likely on par with a Camry. A tad less spacious than a Camry
. Interior materials seems "artificially plastic
" but still sufficient. Overall appearance, sexier than a Camry by a factor of only one. Difference between current 2006 Honda versus 2005 Honda in terms of body exterior predominantly are tail-lights, newer version sporting a more luxurious and defined look while earlier models sported tail-lights that seemingly spanned the entire rear. Better than average looks, but personality is lacking versus a Camry.166 HP with a 2.4 L V4

I actually like the sedan definitely better than the coupe. No question, hands down. The sedan has better heart stopping abilities than the coupe. The coupe seems extremely disproportionate, especially the rear end when viewed at a profile. Artistically speaking, the coupe is terribly bland and outdated.
Just my two cents. To each their own. Everybody has their own opinion and I just thought I put mines on the table as well. Not trying to be rude. Cute...maybe...but sexy...definitely not my cup of tea.
one word: MILEAGE
. An individual concerned with miles per gallon (mpg) should highly consider the Corolla (averaging 30-40 mpg), top of the line compared to all those vehicles you mentioned. Hybrids does it best, but it's because of the addition of a battery. If you substract the battery from a hybrid vehicle, the best it'll probably do on a normal gallon would be roughly equivalent to that achieved by a Corolla. Mileage would be the only reason why I'd consider a Corolla. Looks are above average
. Reliability likely there given that it's a Toyota
; Toyota's are known for the top of the line reliability (the following are Toyota vehicles: Scion, Lexus, Camry, Corolla to name a few)126 HP with a 1.8 L V4
164 HP with a 1.8 L V4But most importantly, I beg of you not to get any vehicle in charcoal color. Charcoal seems extremely outdated even when slattered on a totally brand new and luxurious vehicle.
