Available in coupe and convertible styles, the XK is a Cars.com staff favorite for its knockout looks and effortless performance with what is probably the best conventional automatic transmission around.

$16,600 – $16,600

2008 Lexus GS 350

The rear-wheel-drive GS 350 has been more reliable than average, but the all-wheel drive is below average. The V-8-powered GS 460 has been average. The best of these Best Bets is the hybrid GS 450h, with excellent reliability and better gas mileage in the city than the V-6.

2008 Lexus IS 250

The compact IS sedans are arguably the sportiest models from a company known for its cushy approach. Only the IS 250 offers a choice of transmissions and all-wheel drive, but the more powerful rear-drive IS 350 with a six-speed automatic rockets the car to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
$17,450 – $17,450

$41,200 – $41,200

2008 Lexus SC 430

The SC 430 retractable-hardtop roadster isn't the sportiest model out there, and it hasn't really changed since its 2002 debut. You could say it's stood the test of time, boasting exceptional reliability in a class known for maintenance headaches.

$33,000 – $80,900

2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

We give a qualified nod only to the six-cylinder with rear-wheel drive; its below-average reliability makes it an acceptable choice for this class, but the AWD version and V-8-equipped E550 are rated too poorly to recommend. The E320 Bluetec diesel doesn't have enough reliability data to rate it.
$16,750 – $30,700

2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

the S-Class gives up nothing to competitors when it comes to technology, including night vision. Its reliability has been below average, but it deserves citation among many unrated competitors.
$29,200 – $53,500

2008 Saab 9-3

An IIHS Top Safety Pick, the 9-3 sedan returns to Best Bet status with an improvement in reliability (excluding the convertible). The front-wheel-drive sedan and SportCombi wagon are fun to drive.
$8,350 – $15,050

2008 Volvo C70

It's hard to find a more well-rounded convertible than the C70. It has four seats, its retractable hardtop and front-wheel drive make it suitable for winter, it offers manual or automatic transmissions and it's one of few convertibles to offer side curtain airbags.
$14,750 – $14,750

2008 Volvo S40

The S40 compact sedan is Volvo's best-kept secret, and the model's own secret is that its interior is almost as roomy as the larger S60's.
$10,550 – $11,550

2008 Volvo S60

Nothing less than the car that broke Volvo out of its boxy, practical safe-car era, the S60 led the brand into its sleek, sporty safe-car era. Its interior is a bit tight, but it's a well-put-together car with exceptional reliability
$10,450 – $11,850

2008 Volvo XC90

The XC90 has been vying for a Best Bet designation since it hit the market. Now, with its six-cylinder model posting average reliability, it has arrived.
$14,500 – $23,100
