RE: Chevy cobalt or Ford Focus
pick up a leftover 2005 neon or one of the few 2006 models they produced.
good power, great handling, stiff body structure. a proven driveline.
the car won many events and is just about perfected in its last year of production.
they can be had in sxt trim with ALL the goodies for 13 grand.
my car has 135k on it and hasnt been in for repair since the warranty expired[:D]
tires every 35-40k, brakes at 90k, head gasket(new models have been redesgned) at 68k and the sunroof rebuilt at 68k as well. i left it running when it was low on fuel and it ended up running out of fuel and burning the pump up! that was at 68k as well. in the last 70k it has been maintenence only.
good room, cute personality and i cannot see her disliking it based on its looks if she is considering the new cavalier, the rear end was lifted almost directly from the neon.
