For a 5k commuter beater, I'd say Crown Vic. Durable, cheap to insure, and if you get one with a short rear-end (CVPI), surprisingly decent at highway mpg. Bonus is that anyone loitering in the left lane will GTFO your way.

Even if only because it's what I have. » 10/17/14 12:05pm 10/17/14 12:05pm
