Going to retire my 1999 BMW 740I after 200k and too much money invested. I am over 70 and with serious back problems I cannot work on it anymore. I am looking for a mid size smooth riding sedan that could come close to the ride quality I have enjoyed with my BMW. I want a new car with a warranty so I don't have to work on it. The suggestions I'm looking for are people who have first hand experience and not just opinions. Price range could be as high as $40K Please PM with any recommendations. Thanks

    There is nothing on the market that will equal a 740i Sedan in power, comfort or ride and handling for $40,000 or less.  But I WOULD RECOMMEND the following in the price range you are looking for:

    Buick LaCrosse Sedan (V6)
    Toyota Avalon Sedan (V6)
    Nissan Maxima Sedan (V6)
    Chrysler 300 Sedan (V6)
    Chevrolet Impala Sedan (V6)
    Lexus E350 Sedan (V6)

    Of all the above, the Lexus, Toyota and Buick are tops in this price range.

    Sonata and passat qualify too. Sonata loaded to gills will sell for maybe 30. I can verify it has a nice ride without being soft. Both are also huge inside.

    If you have back problems, you might want to looks into a CUV, they are easier to get in and out of.

    I think you could come in around $40,000. with a Hyundai Genesis. Also 5 yr. bumper to bumper warranty.

    Good choice is even better as a lease or 1-2 years old to save with its high depreciation. Similarly would be a 1-2 year old Cadillac XTS or other Caddy model.

    Volvo makes the best seats in the biz, but the ride quality probably won't be what you are used to. But you can get a new base model S80 to fit under your price cap, per truecar.com, so it might be worth a look. I'd also take a look at the Lincoln MKS.
