Given your stated preferences, you should only consider a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corrolla. Both cars are incredibly reliable. If you change oil and oil filter every five thousand miles or once a year (whichever comes first) and follow manufacturer's 30,000 mile, 50,000 mile services either car will last a good 250,000 miles or more. Based on real life experience, not educated guesswork or hearsay. Hope this helps and good luck with your search.
