    I don't think 28 sounds like a great deal from a company GOING OUT OF BUSINESS.

    you know...if you spend 30-35k on a japanese care your resale value will be 11ty billion times better. attractive purchases prices on a (now bankrupt) gm are meaningless in the long run.

    I keep my cars for 6+ years, not too concerned on resale value. I also have front wheel drive cars.

    well then go for it. although i'd still rather have a japanese car for that much money if you are keeping it.

    I don't understand why someone would ask a bunch of strangers if they should buy a car. :hsugh:

    Buy it if it meets your needs.
