The Aura.

Skip the Altima. Seriously overpriced. Don't get me wrong, I actually like Nissan and the Altima, but twenty grand should get you more than a four-cylinder engine. Plus, more than likely, it was part of Nissan's big four-banger recall, and it should be discounted to less than twenty grand and be around seventeen grand tops.

CTS

But, I wouldn't be able to deal with any of the others because of my strong dislike of FWD. So, feel free to discount my vote. 8)

Caddy. Better quality and trust me you will love that 3.6L. Besides that someone else has already taken the depreciation for you without driving too much. So it is more investment for you than your other choices.

Go for it.

If the CTS checks out mechanically and RWD isn't an issue, that would get my vote. However, I also tend to be partial to brand new, unabused vehicles, so I wouldn't fault getting the Aura or Milan.

Out of the choices presented, I'd go CTS because its already taken the depreciation hit. For only 4k miles a year you can go a little older, better equipped for the same money and not worry too much about repairs or unloading it while its uber-upside-down.

If I were in this position I'd get an 80's Mercedes S class diesel. Luxury, decent price and they run forever.
