im selling my stick shift civic, and going to get an automatic so I can share my car with my mom (use 1 less car). something that i can get around 30 mpg combined will be great
i dont plan to spend anything over 2000, so far the options are:
I was looking at the carpoint for the gas mileage between the civic and corolla, the civic is higher, but on fueleconomy.gov the users get the exact same mileage. I'm leaning towards a corolla, simply because honda auto trannys are not that good.
how about a tercel? isnt those cars rare, such as if i need a replacement part it will be extremely hard to find?
also whats the difference between the prizm and corolla except for the engine and tranny? are the wiring made my toyota also or by geo?
my car 1997 cavalier auto trans 2 door gets around 35-36 average. I have seen 38 at times. I paid 2k for it over 4 1/2 years ago. good little cars. you are limited in mpg but I think it does alright and you can pick one up relatively cheap.
and, no, mines is not for sale.
*edit* it also has the 2.2 liter engine
Be the change you wish to see in the world
the 2.2l engine is reliable, same one in my s-10. cavileers are cheap and abundant(parts are cheap too)
that and personally ive ridden in plenty of cavileers and they seem "bigger" on the inside than corollas or civics....(maybe they just fit me better? i dunno) now berettas/corsicas are just odd fitting to me....(anyone have mpg numbers on those???)
