    i dunno bout u, but the probe sucks.

    yur best bet is to go on a car site like kbb.com or yahoo auto, and do an advanced search. just filter yur search by yur max price range and all the cars that are available in yur price range will pop up. this would be the best option since there will be no bias in yur own search.

    another option would to just find an off day and drive around to different dealerships. with the current economy and automotive situation, u will most likely find great deals if u take the time out to look around. good luck. :)

    I still say that a Lincoln Town Car (if you don't have a long daily commute, where gas mileage would be a deal breaker) is a great value. They are basically very reliable, dependable, cop cars , with a luxury shell on them.
    The body style rarely changes, and most people will think your driving a nearly new car. These cars (when in good condition) still have a good solid ride well past the 150,000 mile mark. This example (posted earlier in the thread-only 55k miles) would probably last long enough to eventually pass on to another family member.

    Well, if you got yourself an Apple laptop (in addition to the Lincoln), you'd be a Mac-daddy.:D :D :D

    v dubs are pretty much hit or miss in that price range. u're prolly lookin at an early 2000 model. they are known to have electrical problems.

    You could also put a magnetic sign on the door that said "Car service", and get $30 to $40 an hour driving people around in your spare time.
