2008-09 Pontiac G8

Any G8 is on the sporty end of the full-size-car class, with potent engines, balanced handling, and a roomy interior. The V8 is the better value, with appreciably stronger performance offsetting [...]

1991-96 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight

The Ninety Eight's conservative styling has clearly begun to limit its appeal, but it's a less-expensive alternative to V8 luxury sedans such as the Cadillac Fleetwood and Lincoln Town Car...

1998-04 Nissan Frontier

Neither the brawniest nor the most refined compact truck of them all, Frontier is still worth a close look. If the truck you find fits your needs, Frontier rates among the better small pickups...

1996-02 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

With its exceptional quality and strong performance, the E-Class deserves strong consideration among premium sedans. Best choice for value is the E320. With any model, high resale values [...]
