I am a cross country sales rep and drive an average of 30-40k a year. I recently sold my '02 Dodge Stratus with 194,550 miles with no problems whatsoever. I change the oil every 3- 5k and it gets me where i want to go. Solid car. My 2006 SXT has 55k on it already and has been just as reliable. How can someone buy a Camry for 4-6k more? I havent yet figured that out. I owned an Accord before my Stratus and lost the vtec engine at 100k. Pretty bad I'd say. For the price and reliability you can't beat a used domestic.
Reliability, decent looking, good gas mileage averaging 28-32 on the highway, very comfortable and safe.
Maybe a little more interior features. But these cars have been more than I ever imagined.
