    I know you say that branding is $$$ and motor0bucket would require lots of money, and if possible choose the domain with keywords.

    however...neither of these domains are very strong with keywords relating to car classifieds. smartkar guide is probably better than motor bucket in terms of keyword domain.

    I don't like overture because it doesn't pull out plurals.

    Why did you identify "car guide" as your primary key phrase?

    I would start with just "cars" then browse down through the related keyphrases, drilling down until I find a phrase that matches my desired content, is popular, and doesn't have much competition. Then I would target that keyphrase in my SEO, starting with the domain of course. The domain doesn't need to be fully generic, but including most or all of the keyphrase is a huge benefit.
