Need to buy luxobarge asap

I got a new job that requires a commute. I did the commute a few times on the miata, and I cant be doing that for long. The car is way to hard for the roads and early in the morning and evening I want to be in relative comfort on my way there and back. So... I need to buy a luxobarge.

Used under 25k bought or leased under 350 a month.

Requirements:

Automatic
4 doors
Heated leather and power seats
Great ride quality
Big
V6 or V8
Preferably import, but can be domestic if its great value for money
Reliable

AWD preferred, but can be FWD or RWD, doesn't matter to me.

SAV or Sedan, SAV preferred.

Can't be German, British, or any other company that commands escalated maintenance costs. Like Landrovers, or Porsche Cayenne/Toureg while cheap might be very expensive to maintain.
-------------

I am seriously considering a 2006 FX35 with 35k miles, my friends is coming off lease. Everything except for NAV and its RWD. Depending on the residual and what he can bargain the bank too, its a strong consideration.

I look to your guidance even though this thread is the antithesis of everything automay normally recommends.

Luxobarge and SAV don't compute. If you want a luxobarge, try a 2004-2006 Lexus LS430. It'll have all of the creature comforts you want, backed up by Lexus reliability.
Countdown until someone recommends a Nissan Maxima, some Volvo, or a Subaru....

If you want it to remain somewhat sporty, how about a Lexus IS250?

Sounds like you want a loaded Maxima (except for the FWD part) or for more money an Infiniti M35x (AWD).

Infiniti M35 or M35x. Undervalued, full featured, reliable, well reviewed.

you can get an 07/06 towncar with nearly no miles on it for 25K, cheap fleet car parts, V8, large as shit, RWD, safe as shit, not very sporty but you got to make some sacrifices

I'd get a M35 long before I'd bought a towncar.
