    Keep the info coming guys, this thread has been gold for me and is really helping the process out. Hopefully others are learning some things as well.
    Exactly why new cars aren't worth It unless you have money to blow. Which it sounds like you don't. Check Craigslist and your local classified adds for newer cars for sale. Chances are they are only selling it because they need money so most likely you have nothing to worry about. Just be careful buying anything older than 04 - 03 around that area anything after 06 is going to be golden and buying off clist will eliminate all the dealer fees an you can get the person to write down a ridiculously low amount of money on the title so you pay less taxes on the sale.

    Bear in mind that a car is and will never be an investment. You buy a car because you like it, you buy new because you want a guarantee that you'll have no head aches for a min of 5 years.

    1960-70 MOPAR and old muscle are investments. And even older as well.

    I was just clarifying for OP because you said a car will never be an investment. And I've been looking at a couple of those investments recently (got my eye on a 72 skylark ATM just not sure if I have time for the commitment)

    I'll let everyone know what we end up getting. Not getting super serious about it until Saturday. This thread has been really great for us though guys, learned a lot. I knew AM community would come through, (that's why I asked) it always does.

    Well we ended up going higher than we initially though after discussing it. We got a 2010 Ford Focus SE with 55K miles on it for just over 10,000. I'm pretty satisfied. This should be good for her for a long time to come.

    The new focus seems to be an excellent vehicle.

    Haven't spent much time under them so its hard to say for sure, but my buddy has one and he seems to like it.

    I think we got a pretty good deal. She's thrilled and now I don't have to worry about her car exploding every time she drives to work.
