In the market for a new vehicle around $16,000. I don't know much about car specifications or mechanics at all really so I could use some help. I'm looking for a powerful luxury type mid size car with low mileage. A newer model preferably easy to work on and upgrade. Fast but reliable lol. All opinions welcome!

    "New" ??

    New to you, or brand new?

    Wait a minute, "low mileage", we're talking used.

    "Fast but reliable" - hmmm...

    Maybe you could share some of what you've been smoking. (smile)

    Mustang of course. 300 HP from the V-6. The most affordable HP out there.

    luxury, low miles, fast, and reliable for cheap .... wow, that's quite an order. Honestly, if it fits the first 3 requirements, there isn't much reason for it to fit the last. What do you consider luxury? I personally wouldn't put any of the above suggestions in that group. Buick comes the closest.
