Well as i posted in an earlier message, i had a large accident with our (family) 1994 Maxima, We decided to sell the car as soon as it is fixed (paid by insurance). The money that car brings us will push our car budget up to 45000$CDN instead of 35000$CDN.
Now, for 35k the choice is obvious for a new car, 2000 Maxima, we love it. but for 45, u move in a new range. the other day we found a used Volvo S80 T6, 1999 with 20000 km's. the salesman offered it to us at an incredibly low price of 42 grand!!! that car is awesome! I am a big nissan fan and for 42 grand, we can get an I30t. But u cannot compare the T6 to the I30... Also, since we need a car right away, we cannot afford to wait for the QE or even the XVL... I would have loved to stay within Nissan, but this circumstance allows for an exciting car with a great deal. Are there any other cars for 45 grand (30g USD) in the midsize performance sedan market? The car can be used, but must be newer than 1998.
Also, what do you all think of the T6?

The Volvo S80 T6 is a great car, if you can find a good deal on it, I would go for it. 268hp twin turbo I6 with a 0-60 time of around 6.5 seconds, sounds like a sweat deal to me. If you have the time you can always wait for the new Volvo S60 T5, which looks to be very promising. A picture:
