I am not trying to sound like a snob here, but since when does a $40K car entitle you to "perfection"??
When you buy a Ferrari, do you get perfection? I doubt it. What about a Rolls? I seriously doubt it. Come on, people are swarming to car dealers to buy $30-$40K glorified pickup trucks (aka SUVs). Do they get perfection? I won't even answer that.
If the perfection you seek is really your most important attribute in a car, and a creaking window is a deal-breaker, then by all means buy a Lexus. Your comment about the Audis really made me laugh, even though my fiancee has one and I think it's a "nice" car.
Drive 'em all and decide.
