wow thats really chepa for an 02, them hyndais sell very cheap, i dunno ilike how that car looks

also do what you want to do, most of us will say get another car, but if you like it and it drives nice then go for it, and with that spare cash you can mod it quickly

otherwise i say with 950 find another used focus, or maybe a svt, if ya want a svt, and stay on FF lols

The Elantra GT would probably be a very good A to B car. I was passingly interested in one before I got the Focus, but decided comfort was less important than performance. They are well-equipped, leather is nice to have, the interior materials used should be nicer than the Focus. A sport car the GT is not, but it should at least be entertaining. Give it a drive and come back with your opinions.

The P5 is supposed to be an excellent driver's car, and while more expensive definitely worth looking into.

My personal opinion is an Impreza 2.5RS, but I've got a thing for them. I see you're located in the northeast, a Subaru might be worth considering. 2.5's had a problem with head gaskets in the first couple years, other than that they're pretty solid.

well i would love to spend the whole 9300 but my dad says no look for a car around 5-7. i cant argue with him(he'll win), if i could spend it tho i would have bought the 2003 5sp dodge stratus r/t i saw yesterday at clas cars. it was blk 39k mi and 6995 3.0l. all leather all power freaking beautiful (salvage storm damage ran great tho) . but once again pops said no too fast. plus he said no coupe. and no more focus. :( so i am limited. and i am liking this hyundai and am not really worried about resale. i no the power is a little on the low side but it is loaded, but i will look into the p5'S

There's going to be little, if any aftermarket support for that Elantra...
