Which would *you* choose?
I currently have a 2001 Chevy Metro sedan which I love. But I know it won't last forever -- little glitches have already started to show up.
I've been researching cars in my price range and preference. Dependability is a huge priority because I'm a realtor and need my car to do my job. Something Japanese with low mileage and under $7,000 are also preferable ($8,000 if I absolutely can't find anything less expensive). I'd prefer manual transmission but it's not a deal breaker. Any Subaru in my price range would be ideal. Anyone here a fan of the PT Cruiser? No Hyundais or Kias, please.
Cavaliers, Aveos, Neons, Focuses (Foci? lol), Sentras and various models of Saturn consistently turn up in my search on Cars.com. I'm concerned that this is a negative comment on the quality of those models.
Are there any brave souls here who would recomend something given my budget and preferences?
