So I just sold my Matrix XRS after having the clutch replaced. Just done dealing with it I guess, I had the car a year and the clutch broke. After getting the car back I just am worried "what's next?" to break. Anyways....
-Budget is about $8000
-I want a stick
-I want something that is somewhat fun (my definition of fun may be different from yours but a Matrix XRS was a lot of fun for me)
-I want something reliable and most importantly free of rust. (im in Boston, MA area, so finding a car here that isn't rusted to **** is not really possible unless its a few years old... I am willing to travel almost anywhere in the US for the right car.)
-overall somewhat similar to the Matrix XRS, a 4 door sedan or hatch/wagon is most likely what I'll end up getting. Not big on coupes
