I'ma huge fan of the Chevy Cavalier. I totaled it at 90k miles, but the value was so low, it only took 2k to get it back on the road. Has 118000 miles on it now with absolutely no issues AT ALL. My focus, on the other hand, had 82k and I've replaced both the engine and clutch already. But, the focus is one of the better looking sedans out there. So I'm kinda a closet Chevy guy on here, I guess! [shh]
My fiancee and I are saving up for a Spark with the 1.4t right now too :P that thing looks like it should be a blast! Good Looking ride man!
