6 Answers


Subaru Imprezza...


The Subaru is AWD, and handling is much sportier than the Civic..


Do you want to keep insurance rates low? A 4dr sedan.


Subaru Imprezza is a four door sedan....yes, the WRX STI would be a super expensive insurance item. I was not recommending that. I suppose if you want to go for just straight reliability and low cost, yeah, get the Honda Civic.


Toyota Corolla.


Also, purchase the newest car you can reliability is more tied to age than mileage....yes, Honda, Toyota or Subaru are all excellent choices...
