Toyota drivetrain very reliable & past model(2003) owned was low cost & low maintenance.
2009 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Extensive research made me notice the Vibe. I was pleased with my purchase, but when my car was exposed to the worst of Hurricanes Gustav & Ike--with NOT EVEN MINOR DAMAGE--I was thrilled. Even my beloved Accord was not this realiable in the 1st 6 months!

It has the Toyota Corrola platform which has a proven track record. Plenty of available parts if/when repairs are needed.
