I don't know who would actually associate German cars with reliability. I would think after all these years, it would be common knowledge. It is said to not to own one outside of warranty. Hence...

I'd go '07- '08 Camry SE. Non SE's are just too plain and boring looking while the SE still looks great and is timeless in design. Risk free investment compared to most.

IMO, the Highlander is the obvious choice for your mother. Of course she needs to test drive both the Highlander and new 4Runner as well as a Lexus RX.

Very nice evolution overall, except for one glaring mistake. It has an electronic e-brake! Blasphemy in a rear wheel drive sports/muscle car. That's going to piss a lot of performance drivers off...

The national average is $2.65/ gal.

You have your wacko liberal California government to thank for $4/gal gas. That's taxes and the requirement of having all these different blends.

Thing is, only full size SUV's offer plenty of 3rd row room plus plenty of cargo with seats up. And those are truck based. I think the model we will see will be similar to the Highlander. A...

I was one of those boys in the late '80's early '90's that had their bedroom wall covered in supercar posters. Do kids even do this much anymore?

Over those years they included Countach/Diablo,...

Just be prepared for a maintenance/repair budget for such a car. A 7-10 year old European car isn't cheap to keep.

OP, why would RX come to mind as a flagship vehicle? That's equivalent to thinking of the Rav4 as a flagship Toyota, all the while the $80K Land Cruiser exists. The RX is an entry level luxury CUV....

Seats are fantastic in person. They don't photograph well in a dark theater. I could never go to a theater with regular seats again.

IMAX used to be my preference too until my local AMC did a $6.1 million makeover. Best seats ever. POWER recliners, ultra plush. This level of comfort beats a much bigger sceen.

You make a fear point about customer preferences in that not many cross shop the ES with the 3, however, "in no way" isn't acurate. Technically, these two are indeed in the same segment, entry level...
