I would stay FAR FAR AWAY from a Neon, Cavalier, Sunfire or other domestic econobox. Seen too many of them turn into money pits! While the engine in a corolla or civic can and will go on forever, the domestics are not so lucky.

Of course now I've opened up a ball of wax any everyone will tell me about their uncles ford escort that went 800,000 miles, but the stats don't lie. Toyota's last longer.
