Car ideas under $20,000

Thinking of getting another car. Would like something less than $20,000. Doesn't have to be sports car related. Just want something to get me from point A to point B reliably. Oh, new cars only please. (no saying used 03 cobras)

Re: Car ideas under $20,000

a moped can get you from point A to point B. it'll just take longer. lol....
there's like a hundred cars that are under $20,000 that can serve as just transportation. If i wanted a good economy but clean car i would probably get a Toyota corolla type S. For about 16K you have a car with a Lexus interior that gets around 30+ MPG. I would slap on some nicer wheels and tint and be done with it.

I've thought about the Carolla. It's a decent car, and it has a very low insurance rate.

I'm also thinking about a Mini or the new HHR

Re: Car ideas under $20,000

Mazda 6.. v6/5 speed can be had for $19k.. very comfortable and fun car to drive for the price

I almost got one before the buick.. BTW this car owns lol runs 14.1s at 97 MPH.. better than a lot of mustang GTs total sleeper haha

plus it still has the blower whine I'm sure you'd love.. but you don't want a used car.. and '03 was the last year for the regal GS so..

How much do those new Civic Hybrids run? My friend has one. Looks ok, great gas mileage.
