      I'd buy this.

      My '91 740 wagon (non-turbo, automatic) is rated 22 highway, but I got 32 once in pure highway driving. I think the 740/940 series is pretty aerodynamic for its time, so they tend to do well on the...

      I drove from Madison, Wisconsin to Seattle in a severely rusted out '93 Chevy S-10 (in 2010) with no preventative maintenance aside from an oil change. It made the trip fine, and continued to run...

      All the current v6 trucks are right around 300 hp. Plenty of power unless you're doing serious towing or hauling loads in the mountains.

      Yep. Pretty much on par with the work needed to keep a 15-20 year old Camry or Maxima or Protege on the road, in my experience.

      You were driving a base model economy car with a 4 speed automatic, which all the Civic's competitors also had when this car came out. Were you expecting a rocket? Economy cars have gotten better in...

      My sister's had one (2002 ES300) for two years and it's been a great car for her. Parts seem a bit expensive, but fortunately very little has gone wrong despite her beating on it in LA traffic. It's...

      A '79 Scirocco is actually a much better car than this. This is from the era where Hondas were still REALLY cheap and not yet really sporty. It's a slow tin can that will take 15+ seconds to get to...

      My daily at the moment is 27 years old, and 300,000+ miles (odometer broken ;)) People have much less disposable income than they used to, so driving a car for a long time makes sense even if you...

      Looks exactly like my old CRX. Same color, wheels, crank windows, etc. But mine had much higher mileage.

      CRX Si was far from the cheapest Honda, C&D lists base price for the 1990 Civic as $6635, although that is US dollars. The cheapest cars: Hyundais, Escorts, Geo Metros, etc. started a bit less than...

      Volvo 740/940/850s seem to be dirt cheap right now, so you could potentially get a decent one for 3 grand and not feel bad about trashing it, because they're not rare or particularly valuable. But...

      Personally, I wouldn't want to subject a nice w123 to road salt. Those cars don't really have the greatest rust proofing. If you want something older, I would look at Volvo 740 and 940s. They're dirt...

      Except most older American cars don't run a 13 second quarter mile, not even close. Unless you're specifically talking about high performance cars of the late 60s. Either way, not really an accurate...

      Upscale hatchbacks and small wagons are popular here in Seattle, I bet they'd sell quite a few if they were priced similarly to a GTI. If they sold it with a TDI or hybrid (like the Jetta) powertrain...

      Not really, in this context. A 5 speed 240 can get 30 mpg strictly on the highway, but the OP is looking for more like 40.

      A Mustang or Camaro with suspension work will go around corners much better than a modified Passat...

      The 1995-1998 Mazda Protege with the 1.5 actually got better mileage than the newer generation, so I would look out for one of those. It'll be a better car to drive than most of the other choices....

      People who think Everett to Renton is an acceptable commute don't live in the Seattle area. You're seriously talking about spending up to 4 hours a day or 20 hours a week in I-5 hell. Even if you...
