Re: Criteria

Are there any Ford or GM models that might be acceptable that are in their last model year, or close to it? That's how I got my pretty well equipped new SunFire for $12,600 when Mel worked at GM.

Also, if you can develop a taste for stickshifts (which seems likely, considering you enjoy motorcycles), they make 4-cylinder subcompacts much more responsive and they cut the price of your options drastically. On the other hand, it makes it hard to get cruise control, you don't automatically get traction control with ABS (if the model was like that, otherwise), and if you want remote start, you have to sign a waiver that you won't try to use it when you've left the car in gear. And traffic jams can get uncomfortable.

My parents just got a Saturn ION Quad Coup with a stickshift a couple months ago and they seem pretty happy with it.
