I recently bought a 2016 Ford Taurus which is the same car as a 2019. So far I haven't seen any problems with it, other than the fuel mileage is not what I got with my old, smaller car. It has excellent trunk space too even though it's not a hatchback.

If it's the trash that so many in this thread have made it out to be, well I haven't seen it yet.

Sedans aren't being discontinued because they're trash. They're being discontinued because the TREND is going toward hatchbacks and SUVs. That's what everyone seems to want these days, their OPINION of what they want. It doesn't make sedans bad or cars from domestic makers trash.

I don't know why people keep saying that but it's not true. If sales keep going down then Toyota/Honda/Nissan/Hyundai and Kia will stop making them too.

Personally, if I were you and the Camry is running fine, why not get the little cosmetic issues taken care of? It'd be far cheaper than getting a new car. To me a 2012 is new enough that I wouldn't see getting a new car enough of an upgrade to bother. But that also depends what features it has on it.

I traded in a 2001 that had a couple of cosmetic issues, but the transmission was going bad and I didn't want to rebuild a transmission on an 18 year old car, that didn't have half the features a new one does. It seemed like a good time to upgrade to me. But if it hadn't had that transmission issue I might have kept driving it for a long while.

You are trying to buy cheap unreliable vehicle from manufacturers known for mass producing cheap unreliable vehicles.

You will always get what you paid for. There is never a good reason why a model or line of models is axed.

You want to be the one to support those manufacturers?
Explain please?

I would absolutely go with your first preference... an off lease G80 in fact I’d do everything in your power to at least get her sitting in one because once she tries that out against the competition you’re talking about it will be game over..

But then I started thinking about all of those disgruntled factory employees that will be losing their jobs soon. Perhaps the quality of these cars will go down.

And what about the sedans made by companies that will not be discontinuing models? Will a shrinking supply of GM/Ford sedans cause demand/prices to rise for Toyota/Nissan/Etc sedans, or will there be continued erosion of the sedan market, lowering prices across the board?
Ponder this. Did all those who bought the last Saturns and Pontiacs get a deal? We were one of those who owned a Saturn when the company folded. Overnight we were the only one on the road driving a Saturn. Not good.

Sedans are not dead. The big 3 are restructuring, and since trucks, suv's, and cuv's are the big thing now, that is their focus. It is a rather smart move on their behalf. While the sedans slowly disappear, they will be working on electric vehicles, and once they are ready to bring them to market, the sedans (or sedan like vehicles) will make their return without overcrowding their portfolios.

There will still be plenty of sedans kicking around so buy whatever you like best.

I still see Saturns all the time. The plastic body panels do well in the Land of Salt.
If you bought a Hummer you did great. The Alphas in particular have huge resale.

I see pontiacs g6 and g8 and grand ams along with Saturns and oldsmobile in fact i see aolds Bravada in great shape here in the frozen state of Michigan. I see Saturn Vues and ions all the time. You must live in a one gas station town if you’re the only Saturn in town.

There were deals on Saturns.
Guy I know bought an Outlook when Saturn was closing up because it was cheaper than the other big GM CUVs.
Turned out to be a very good vehicle. He still has it all these years later.
