      I have been extremely happy with the assembly quality of my Japan-made Yaris. The materials (especially the interior) are basic but assembled with early '90s Toyota fanaticism. The paint is...

      I usually split the difference between the normal and severe schedules, so about 5-7k miles depending on what those are.

      The Mirage takes 0W-20 (synthetic is the only option in that weight IIRC)...

      Keep in mind that a lot of folks who do 99% city driving want something that will do better than 25 MPG (that Soul gets 24). Lots of cars do really well these days on the highway due to...

      There are lots of new Mitsubishis running around the Metroplex -- tons of Outlander Sports and a lot of Lancers. I probably see a Mirage about once a day. There are about 10 dealers here. I did...

      They are all advertised with $1500+ of military, loyalty and college grad rebates factored into the price.

      Yeah, you can get a 5-speed DE for $12xxx -- but it is better equipped with power everything, auto climate, blah blah. My wife decided to splurge a little and get the ES after having a strippo Yaris...

      Not because we don't still like ours -- we talked about it on the first page. It is just not the car to get if you go on lots of long trips or into the mountains with any regularity. But is awesome...

      They don't make money on them (made in Japan, possibly France) so there are never any incentives on the Yaris. They end up being $14xxx for a base 3-door/5-speed "L" with crank windows, power locks,...

      I haven't driven an SE (impossible to find here with a 5-speed and also too expensive for what it is) but I like my base "L" just fine. I would like the rear discs and tighter steering rack from the...

      Why not a 2-lane left into the shopping center, then allow U-turns from the inside turn lane. Seems like a lot of unnecessary back tracking.

      If the OP's friend doesn't mind driving a stick, I'd get a Mazda2, no question. There's a ton of incentives on the hood, they are fun to drive and you can get them for $12,9xx. I would have bought...

      It was much better back when it first launched (no classic rock or Top 40 like Adele mixed in to boost ratings) but it is still pretty solid. :thumbup:

      Usually just NPR or the local indy music station (affiliated with public radio) on my 10-minute commute.

      I bought a new Protege LX 5-speed in the late '90s (when I was 20) and the insurance was about $100 a month. I traded it for an '03 Civic Si when I was 24 and the insurance was the same as my $250...
