You realize all of those cars at that price point will be on their 4th ethnic owner? Even the "3k meme cars" are a fucking mess at that price point. The meme needs to die.

So long as you dont mind putting premium in the car, as well as looking like a welfare recipient, this is the car for you. Its fast, reliable, cheap to buy and maintain.

Does it prefer premium or is recommended by nissan?

>>17873794
Says it on the fuel door; 'premium fuel is required for maximum performance' but ive heard of people running into engine issues if they consistently run on anything less

>>17873299
If you are in the US don't get a Suzuki they stopped making them in 2012 and parts are probably hard to find

I've got an '02 Suzuki in Canada and parts are cheap on rock auto. If you go to a parts store it's gong to cost you. There's also not many in the junkyards. They're still pretty cheap to run vehicles.

Are the old saturns any good?

get a hyundai accent dude that shit is slow as fuck and not much space. but parts are the cheapest and it will probably fall apart before it stops working

Infiniti g20. Try to get a "t" model with a 5 speed and lsd.
