My only concern with the Sonata is it was totally redesigned in 2011...should I be concerned with that? I've always heard the best "time" to buy a car is the year after a redesign...after they work out the bugs.

However I'm just starting to look around and do some research on what my options will be when the time comes. I think I'd like to stick with something in the realm of the Grand Prix...a large-ish sedan with a V6 and nice trunk space (need it for hauling band equipment). I'm looking for something around MY 2011 as my wife's Civic is a 2006 (paid cash) and we're trying to get on the "5 years apart" track with our 2 vehicles. It's not a hard budget but I would really like to stay under $15k (under $10k would be great) and try to pay cash. We're saving as much as we can to try to make this happen.
So far I've found:
Chevy Impala - OK, not much for looks but economical and good size. Seems like my best option at this point...
Ford Taurus - Really like it overall, huge trunk, but pricey
Accord/Sonota - Like these too but would they be too small?
Chrysler 300 - meh
We also like the idea of a CRV, but I'm not sure I want a 4 cyl (I have to merge onto the express way daily) and it's also pricey.
