Who would want to use that as a daily on your long drive in to work? It has to ride like a truck from 67.

Many things, none of them working.
Incidentally, I should note that in a fit of financial pique, I paid the thing off last week. The lien release came in the mail on Saturday, and it threw that code Sunday.

Cheeky bastard.

I bought a 2015 sonata with every single option for 21k with 20k miles for the same reason.

Reliable, very comfy, gets 33-34 highway on cruise, tons of toys (adaptive cruise, lane departure, 8 speaker stereo, heated & ac'd seats, remote start from phone), inexpensive to insure.... the thing has absolutely 0 character but is perfect for a commute where I sit in traffic on the interstate for 45 minutes.

IMO any of the full size sedans fit the bill. Accord, Sonata, Avalon, even the Optima. They're all boring as sin but if you have interesting cars in the garage it's nice to have a car that's comfy and relaxing.
