Chrisi's Car! — I like my car, it's adorable! But.... I want something that goes fast. The back tires can get a little squirley, but it gets good milage. About 30 or so to the gallon. I like driving with the windows and the sunroof down. My car even has an awesome custome sound system, so I play my music obnoxiously loud! Plus, I have an ipod adapter for it!

Pros

Fun and easy to drive
Good gas milage
Easy to self-repair
Easy to modify

Cons

Poor acceleration on the highway
"Extras" generally not included
Many aftermarket parts not cheap due to high demand

25

Good Bang For Your Buck — Don't know what to say. Its a solid car for what you pay. Acceleration off the line is decent, good fuel mileage, they're easy to modify and to work on yourself. There's not alot to them as they are cheaper cars and thus don't usually include all the extras that come with higher-end cars.

Pros

100% reliable car. Fantastic value for money.

Cons

Not the most exciting car in the world (stock).

35

Solid Reliable Car — The first car I ever bought. Fantastic value for money. It really proved to be a wonderful companion for 9 years of toiling under harsh arid conditions. Solid as a rock (rear ended some other people a couple of times) and all I got was a cracked bumper while their car boots were completely crushed. Hondas are reliable reliable reliable.

Turbo B18b Ej6 W/ A Hint O' Jdm Parts. — I've had this car since it was brand new. 10 years of putting parts on and taking parts off. 10 more years is definitely going to happen.
