Fiesta is more fun, but more expensive and smaller.

You can probably pick up a HHR SS for like $7K.  I'd do that.

Fiesta ST is 3x the price of an HHR SS.

Under $2000, 4 doors preferably. Reliability or easy maintenance a plus.

How about this legendary hot hatch for about $3,500....

"Reliability and easy maintenance" must translate badly.

Best Jalopy?

Versa S.
"On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high." - Ayrton Senna

Been driving a 2009 Civic (automatic) the past few weeks. Love it. New frontrunner is a similar vintage Si with 6 speed. I think I prefer sedans over hatchbacks and I want something that's small-ish but can still cruise comfortably on roadtrips and fit normal humans in the back seat. If not for that last point, a Mini would be the top choice.

Jeep Cherokee or Izuzu Trooper can meet my original criteria. I think those are the new frontrunners. Cool looking, fits more people than El Camino, can take it camping in Moab.

Trooper is much bigger than the Cherokee. Suggest the first generation with the 4-cyl and a stick. So slow it's fun!

Si from that generation should cost something like $9,000 or less.  That's a lot of car for the money.

I should have fixed the second one I had. I probably could have kept it until the XTerra.

Those cars are actually holding their value really well.  Unless its an 06 with like 150k miles, you're not getting it for under 10k.  At least in the Chicagoland area.
