which one should I get? and which one is best in terms of price/quality/maintenance

there is a couple of cars that i really like,and i think some help and info on those would be helpfull before buying.
what in really conserened about is the maintenance cost horsepowers,insurance cost,quality.
the cars im looking at are: 2000 Jetta VR6,2000 BMW 323i,2000 audi a4 2.8 and 2001 Lexus IS 300.
what i know bout those is:
that jetta brakes down too often and that the maintenance is not cheap.
bmw-high maintenance cost
A4-maintenance cost and all kinds of other problems among them suspention ones.
lexus-completely nothing!
PPL please help me to get the right one,cuz insurance is going to kill me anyway,atleat i wonna make sure i`ll save as much as i can on maintenance and everything elese!

I'd choose the IS300, its probably the most reliable car out of all the ones you mentioned. Insurance wont be that bad because its a 4dr sedan and not some super fast speedcar. You also have the option of modding the IS300 to make it somewhat quicker. If something breaks on the Lexus, it wont cost as much to get it fixed as it would with VW, BMW, Audi.

I would choose the IS300 also considering your question, maint/repair costs. Personally I would take the BMW but definately not a 323, 328 or 330 is more like it. VR6 I wouldn't even consider.
