Hey GC, So I'm currently living at rez for university but in the summer I will be looking in to buying a car for my 30 minute commute everyday next year (60 minutes hwy driving round trip). I don't want to spend more than around $5000 and would be looking for a car that is: -reliable (duh) -good on gas -NOT a civic, because insurance for a honda civic for a 19yo male is ridiculous -manual preferably -probably at least an '01 I have a few thoughts and I'd like you guys to tell me if they're good ones. I've been looking at the Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback 'cause it looks pretty rad and are generally really cheap. Toyota Corolla because of the mileage. Any problems with these cars? Things to avoid? Thanks GC!
