Mitsubishi Mirage — well it has better lines then a honda civic or chevy cavalier but it lacks the needed horsepower to beat anything. At only 92 hp it still manages to beat pretty much anything of the line.

Pros: small, 30 mpg city, cheap $2000, fun, great insurance $70 a month!

Cons: only 92hp, name is mirage which some people think is girly

This Car Has Never Let Me Down! —

Alright, so I'll admit it - I bought this car out of desperation with only 4 hours on my side and it was between that, a '00 Corolla or a Geo. Considering the Corolla and Geo have exactly the same engine(only one was more expensive than the other - guess which one!), I had an obvious choice in front of me with a 1.8L 4cyl getting more than decent MPG ranging from 26 city - 32 hwy, listed. It was a rental before I bought it in 2003, with only 16,389 miles on it and I honestly didn't expect it to hold up long enough for me to pay it off. So, the real question: Would I have made the same decision all over again? You bet your sweet ass. I have had this car for 4 years and 6 months and single-handedly put well over 111,000 miles on it, but it has yet to disappoint me. I take good care of my vehicles and this one proves the Car-ma Theory - "Routine maintenance rewards routine reliability." I've had to re-charge the battery, replace the headlights, do a few extra brake jobs and install some new sparks, but other than that, I haven't invested a single cent over average maintenance costs.

Pros: Exceptional gas mileage (with conservative driving, though that's not really my style) with my best recorded MPG being 38.1 and my longest range on a full tank (12.4 gal capacity, excluding 0.8 gal reserve) bringing me just barely over 400 miles.  The four 6.5 in. speakers produce better than average sound quality for a stock stereo package in a compact economy sedan.  The handling is nimble enough to let you veer out of the way of the neighbor's dog, but i wouldn't go pulling any stunts just yet.  Acceleration is above average considering this car's dollar-for-dollar competition.

Cons: The interior leaves a lot to be desired, but who am I kidding -  this isn't your daddy's Lexus.  You may find yourself kicking the nearest wall when your battery is removed during a tune-up and you need to get the stereo security code from the dealership for a rip-off price of about $42, and you may wonder why that bumper cover made solely of plastic will cost you in the range of $230-250 PLUS the matching paint job.  Cabin can be a little noisy on the road at high speeds.  I wouldn't recommend actually trying to fit 5 full-sized adults into this car, but it can be done.
