Have looked at Honda CRV and Nissan Rogue; I like both, mainly due to reliability, gas mileage and AWD. Toyota Rav4 and Kia Sportage would be 2nd choices in SUV department. In wagons, would consider Toyota Matrix and Subaru.

Pretty basic search, I guess. Just looking for a car with really good cost-to-own per year, taking into account Fuel (18k miles a year, for us), insurance, maintenance and repairs, and depreciation.

  3 responses   Recommendations for used car that is small, cheap and reliable
Member6223

Something cheap and reliable. Possibly an alternative to the Honda Civc/Accord since they tend to be expensive from brand recognition. Looked at some Mazdas, but was concerned about rust issues. Also looked at some Hyundais, Elantras, etc. Just trying to figure out what old used cars to target forreliability.

Member6070

I've driven the Accord, Camry, and Mazda 6. I liked the accord better than the others. But it doesn't ride much better than my '07 Camry hybrid on which I have 145000 miles. I'd keep it, but it may be getting close to battery replacement.

My top 2 choices are the 2005 Honda Civic HX Coupe CVT Transmission and the 2005 Volkswagen Golf TDI. The main reason these are my top 2 is because of the fuel efficency these cars are supposed to get.
