Well guys, I thank you for your advice. Just an update, I've come full circle, tried to rationalize (every which way) buying an SEC as soon as I get rid of the Accord, but it just doesn't look like it will happen (yet). I'd much rather buy a $10-15k SEC than a $3-5k one.
Anyway, I'm still SEC-obsessed but it looks like for now I'll be going more in the direction of the super reliable Merc like the 300D or turbodiesel. I'll look at all of your earlier suggestions as well. Just need something comfortable and reliable and quiet if possible for my winter driving. With the sale of the '03 Accord, my budget will prob be $4,000.
