    I'm basing this off of Consumer Reports (I have it)

    $10,000-$12,000 Reliable Cars
    2006 Hyundai Tiburon
    2003 Acura RSX
    1999 BMW Z3
    2005 Dodge Neon
    2004 Subaru Impreza
    2001-2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
    2003 Toyota Celica
    2002 Volvo S60

    I can pull up the more expensive or cheaper cars if you'd like.

    oh and they rated the 1998 v6 mustang as a reliable car for $4000-$6000 price range.

    Looking at the reliability records it's the ONLY year mustang that was FUBAR :lol: 1998 FTMFW!!!

    Oh and people who own '05 v6 mustangs get out while you still can :lol:

    Wow man i appreciate all the reports ! :thumbup: my cousin subscribes from it but i did n't want to keep bugging him every time i see a different car. Im glad to see the RSX is up top. the one i linked a few posts back they were asking for 14,000. how much do you think i can negotiate with that?

    Hyundai has THE best warranty, I really recommend getting the Tiburon, they are excellent cars for fun and for daily driving. If only the could've gotten a little more power outta that motor.... :lol:

    Hyundai's warranty. 2006 is the BEST year to get a Tiburon, it's top rated for reliability.

    Acura doesn't have to memorable of a warranty and it solely depends on the RSX you buy because there were so many different options. At least with Hyundai they gave you one standard warranty that tops everybody elses.

    Didn't read all responses but what about and SRT-4 Neon? as long as you (or owners before you) didn't rape it it's all of the above. It's not foreign but it's a nice lil 4 banger that everyone on this site hates but i wish i would have kept mine!

    My buddy had an srt-4. i really didn't mind it at all. just not really what i am looking for. Even with the mustangs i could care less how fast my car is. i just want it to sound( i will now say bye to, since ill be selling the v8), and look good, and be comfortable.
