This is all based on my feelings today. In a month I'll have new preferences, most likely. I'm still in college at the moment, and plan on driving my Accord until it no longer becomes economically sensible to do so, at which point it will be garaged (crazy I know). Depending on when that happens (or if something requires me to replace it sooner) will effect what I would be looking at:
Next few years: Hyundai Elantra
Mid-late 20s: Subaru Impreza WRX
Mid 30s: BMW 328 Sportwagon 6 Speed (there is something so ironically awesome about a wagon with a manual, let alone a 6-speed)

Couple years away yet, but will likely be a Lincoln product (ecoboost equipped), or an ecoboost equipped Ford.

I had my mind set on leaving Honda. Then when they released the Accord Touring, that somewhat bought them some time. Now I am awaiting the release of the TLX. If I don't like it after a text drive, it will probably be an Infiniti Q50 AWD. I do have a soft sport for the Accord Touring though.

I really like the fact that my Honda has been so good and reliable to me, even though i beat on her! The only thing that I would change about the car is that it is not RWD. I really would like to do a bit more engine wise, or have a better engine, but the thing thats restricting it is that it's FWD.

I like the Accord, and it does OK in the snow with a set of snow tires on it. But, I want something better for the winter. I want something that sits up, 4WD or a decent AWD system and some ground clearance.

Looking around, at this point, I'd like to get a Toyota 4Runner. Also would like to have something that can pull 2-3k pounds worth of a popup.

Unless the new Ridgeline wows me I'm going to a pickup...

My wife may be down for something Honda though, she does favor Hyundai since her family has had so many with zero issues.

Since I just got my Accord and keep my cars for a long time, I don't have anything on the immediate horizon. My wife currently drive an Odyssey. When our youngest is old enough and the older kids are gone, she wants to go to a Pilot. She really likes Hondas (this is her 3rd...previous Odyssey and an Accord) and wants to stick with something that sits up, but is less of a mommy mobile. I think we will have at least one Honda in the stable for some time to come.

I just got my 8th Gen V6 Coupe but if I still like the coupe style after this one I'd look at an A5. If I want the back doors again I'd look into a TLX or an A6. It all really depends on what I need in a car.
