Ummm...How about a Focus?
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">That's one focus out of how many hundred-thousands? You're not the only focus owner on earth. The other owners seem pretty damn happy if you ask me.Originally posted by Red_Willy_Focus:
She definately won't get a focus because of all the problems mine has and that mine only gets 17MPG and the dealership still can't find anything wrong with it. So a focus is out of the question.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yep, I would really suggest the Elantra GLS, you can pick one up for around 12K, and the bumper-to-bumper is 5 years 50K, you can't beat that, and I've had them as rental cars and they aren't bad at all for the price.Originally posted by focusongreg:
hyundai elantra. gt is $14,500, so the sedan would be lower. pretty nice car for the money. plus the 10 year/ 100,000 mile warranty. my friend has one and he loves it.

Also her dad is a big consumer reports man and since they hate the focus he won't invest in one.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">You sure about that price for an EX? Invoice is like $15,800 and no rebates at least in my area. I just bought my wife a DX auto for $13,000 and put the A/C in myself for $820. I thought I ended up with a hell of a deal on some well built, reliable transportation.Originally posted by AnythingButAFocus:
Well, lets see.
There is also the Honda Civic. If she wants / needs ABS, she'll have to get the EX, and those run about $14,500 around here, with ads, that is. Superb build quality, 5-star crash ratings, and a peppy VTEC-equipped motor make it an overall nice vehicle.
