Default Re: Looking for a New Car. Drummers' Advice Wanted

I leased a 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring wagon three months ago and I love it.
They have made the same model for three years now so a used one can be found.
The rear seats fold down and it easily holds a kit.
The drivers seat is very comfortable for a 6 foot tall person.
It gets 28 MPG average.
It has good power and its fun to drive.
The car isn't overloaded with crap that you don't need.
It is a simple car that is easy to maintain.
The braking system is excellent.
The ride is stiff and stable at high speeds.
Full ipod connection also.

I am an automotive technician by trade and I only buy dependable vehicles because I hate to spend my off time repairing my own car and spending lots of cash on repair parts.
I kind of like old drums:)
