It's an answer that won't be acceptable. A Honda Civic....probably a three to five year old model. The reasoning is this. Hondas are reliable cars....when you are out at midnight, you can have some trust in the car performing. Second, maintenance is a lesser issue than most of the other models. When you look at folks sitting there with high-end cars and some break-down.....the cost factor is $500 to a $1000 to fix the car. Third, gas costs. Face it, the Honda gets good mileage. It won't be a five-star car for looks usually, but you have to look at the other issues as you make this final decision.

Get a used Toyota Yaris or a Honda Fit. Have a mechanic with you before buying. If you know how to drive a stick, get a stick.

I'd go with a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. Those are affordable cars that are cheap to operate and are very well built and reliable. It's the perfect first car.

Ford Focus or Fusion.

Consumer Reports has recommendations by budget, so that's a good place to start. For small cars you'll be looking roughly for a 2005-2007 Civic, Corolla, Scion, Sentra, Focus, etc. For mid sized - you can get a Fusion or Sonata for about the same price. An Accord or Camry are good choices, but you'll most likely have to get a 2003-2005 with high miles.

For my senior year my parents got me a 2001 Ford Focus with well over 200k miles. Wasnt all that but got me from point a to point b with no issues. Not a bad looking car and every year they get better. Great on gas mileage, pretty roomy inside.
