It's all about preference. Do you just want to go fast? Have the cars had the work they should have had done to them? i.e. timing belt, water pump, basic maintenance. Are you looking for a certain amount of space? I picked my car because it basically came loaded with everything except heated seats and navigation. I would've preferred a manual transmission. Don't let other people pick the car for you. Test drive them. The owners shouldn't be that afraid of having anything ruined... they're automatics. Can't dump the clutch or ruin the transmission as easy.
