What is a good used car for under $15k? I would prefer to buy the car from a dealership, but would buy from private party if they seem to be trustworthy and the car is in great condition. I would also prefer a used car that still has warranty just incase anything goes wrong. I dont think I want to even include Kia, Saturn and im not sure about Hyundai.

i assume its for daily driving. toyotas (corolla, camry) and hondas (civic, accord or even a brand new fit) comes to mind first. others are late 90's early 00's bmw's but that would cost you a lot to maintain.

Reliability, Best performance that that amount of money can buy, most likely a coupe, automatic, no models older than 2002, good gas mileage. I want this car for commuting to work since I travel 80 miles every day for work.

My Girl paid $15k for her Loaded '04 EX V6 Accord Coupe. I think it had 42,000 miles on it. She gets 28mpg on the highway. A 4cyl would be even better on gas.

That's not bad at all. I would probably get a 4 cyl for the gas mileage, but I would be sacrificing power.

It really sucks that the Si can only use premium gas, but I cant be spending $3.59 to $3.89 on premium gas which usually runs my gas bill at around $70 to $100 a week for gas including personal use and work commute. I also dont want to sell my Si, so that's why I wanted to see everyones opinion since some people here can find some gems.
