Looking for Recommendations

Hi, currently I own a well maintained 2004 Ford Focus SE. The only big concern right now is rust. The rocker panels were replaced 2 years ago and right now the car has minor surface rust, that I have learned how to repair.

So, my question, is that I will be needing to buy a newer car in the future but need some help. My Ford Focus is my first and only car I've ever driven. It has been extremely reliable and great on gas.

I'll be looking for a car to buy in the next 2-3 years with these parameters: used, 3-4 years of age, sedan, well built, reliable, automatic, AC and simple - without all the bells and whistles, except for airbags.

Any ideas?

    Probably something like a Mazda3 might suit you--same basic size, and generally a better buy used than a Honda or Toyota. Also the Hyundai Elantra comes to mind. If you like domestics and don't mind the larger size, the Chevy Impala would be worth a look.

    Too much money, I was hoping to stay with a Ford.
