I was looking for a low mile southern 9-5 when I was working in the Atlanta area and took quite a few for a drive. I did not care for the feel and the interior construction of the 9-5's. The plasticy trim was a turn off for me, even though the 9000 interior is mostly plastic, it feels like "high-grade" plastic. :-) No comments on the Mazda 6? I will not be divesting in all 9000's. Having two on the road at the same time in MI, and not counting a "remote" 9000 that I've been paying for maintenance on in NH, is getting taxing on my time and wallet. I've been getting disillusioned with the lack of availability on common parts and the cost associated with upkeep. I'll keep my 96 Aero on the road for a while, but it's a rust bucket. When it needs a clutch or other major repair, I'll throw the towel in on it also. I was actually thinking about a Lexus RC F sport in AWD. It doesn't get very good gas mileage but I guess you have to give up something to drive a really fancy Toyota.
