Toss out the Hyundai, the Honda and the Mazda would in my opinion be tied, both good cars, just would come down to looks, equipment and how it was maintained, the Acura would have a slight advantage over the Lexus but both of those are high maintance vehicles so if there was any shirking of the maintance plans it could cause you trouble, and last would be the Nissan 350, extremely high maintance for an Asian vehicle, plus the cost of insurance as these are classed as a sports car, but if your only looking for performance then this one is the one to get.


I like the Honda S2000, but a good one will be pricey. I also like the Lexus IS350 and the Acura TL. Instead of the Nissan 350Z consider the newer 370Z. Thumbs down to the Hyundai and the Mazda. The 350Z and 370Z would be quickest, but the Honda would be the best handling and probably the most fun to drive. Guessing the mileage that they last would be impossible, because how they were maintained is unknown. Maintenance costs would be pretty similar in my opinion.
