2005 Accord I4 SE with a 5spd Manual (they are rare)
2004/5 Mazda GS Hatchback with a manual (most fun to drive, best looking mid-sizer IMHO)



If you can stretch your budget a little more, then you can get the Accord EXL / Mazda 6 GT (fully loaded)

2005 dodge neon srt-4s are in your price range and you can probably haggle them down to the lower end of your ballpark

You drive long distance? On highways? Might want to get something with a V6 like an Accord/Camry. They're boats but they're comfy and the car won't feel like it's coming apart on highway speed.

Or get a good GT car like SC400/300 Those are pretty cheap as well.

None are gas sipping but if I have to drive long distance, I'd rather have a comfy cruiser than a low torque&lightweight gas sipper.

Honestly there's not that much difference between a midsize 4 and 6 cylinder.. You're going to be revving the 4 up to speed, where as with the 6, you're just feathering the gas.
My 4-cyl Camry got roughly the same as my 6-cyl TL.

If fuel econ is your deciding factor, stick with the smaller 4 cylinders.. Civics, Corollas, Fits, etc.

So far the best suggestion yet is a Jetta tdi. I was pretty close to trading my tsx for one.

yup.. i'm gonna guess just as long as there's no sirens, lights and other stuff that an emergency vehicle has that would be prohibited from the general public.

been seeing a lot of former crown victoria former police cruisers lately. keep thinking they're unmarked police cares haha

Don't get an 02 Accord, the automatic transmissions are ticking time bombs, known to fail prematurely and cost for a replacement.
it applies to 1999-2002 i think
my dad had a 2000 accord (auto 2.3L) and the transmission didnt hold up either. became problematic around 171,000km

my coworker drives one....

He bought it late last year and he really wants to get rid of it...
primary reason being:

people slow the fuck down around him and it gets annoying when you are in a hurry

Def the TSX.
Stylish, basically Accord parts/suspension but plushier, and relatively cheap on gas and reliable. That's why you see tons of them on road still = )

If I were you, I'd just get a 2010+ yaris. You could easily buy a low km almost new yaris in your price range. It's 4 door, 1.5L, reliable and new. If you go toyota dealership, you can even get warranty and maintenance.
