That's good to know I picked out a decent car for my second car. I'll be getting a Zx2 though, my dad doesn't like Focuses. He used to be a Ford mechanic... My '92 Tempo is crap. It gets ok gas mileage I guess, but lacks too much in power. 3 speed automatic trans to go with the rest of it. Good thing is that it hasn't left me on the side of the road. Bad thing is that it's nearly impossible to get the oil filter changed. Gonna work a lot this summer to get the money for a Zx2, I'm tired of the Tempo.

I personally don't like the look of any VW. If I got an import it would be a Corolla or a Civic. I'm kinda stuck with Ford though b/c my dad knows how to work on them.

I love ford, my fav. brand. For trucks at least. If I was to get a cheaper sports car, I would proly get a camaro. I dont want imports. Ford trucks are the best though. I love my ranger, even though it's not 4x4, it's a great little beastie. 4.0L, gets about 17MPG with a teen driver in town, and that's saying something!! It's tires that rundown quickly, lol.

Out of those I like the GTI, but the thing is with VW's are hard to maintain but they are good. Stay away from the eclipses. If u want something reliable get an import, and try to stay away from domestics.

Errr I would stay away from the 3g and up eclipses. 1989-1999 are the good years of the eclipse for tuning if thats what your into. I just got my eclipse and it's a beast at the track. Not a big fan of domestic sports cars but I do like there trucks.

You should only get a truck like that if you will actually use it for something other than just to get to school or work. Otherwise you are wasting a bunch of gas and not using it's full power, therefore you might as well get a small truck or car. A lot of guys have F350s at my school, or other big trucks. Every one of them talk about the expense to fill up the tank just once. I use an average of $20-$40 per week on my car for gas, and it put a lot of miles in that every week too.
