Used car suggestions?

Hi ladies,
I think I am going to have to be in the market for a new (used) car. I want you all to let me know what you think. GMC is completely out of the question but will look at all other options.
-have 4 doors
-have 3 seat belts in the back
-be a manual transmission
-lower miles

What car can you suggest?

  • I had a KIA Optima for 6 years. It had all the things you mentioned except manual transmission. I loved it, but was ready for a new car. I now have a KIA Soul. KIA's are good cars.

  • I bought a Hundyia Elantra used last april. It's a 95 but has all the requirements you have(I'm sure you can find an even newer one) and gets 30 miles per gallon. I go weeks on a full tank of gas.

    I would recommend looking into a private buyer, and then having a mechanic inspect it, unless you buy a certified used vehicle. Otherwise the dealerships usually overprice them..make sure you know the Blue Book value before you talk to the seller.

    Good luck
