Question reliable car for under 6k

Hey guys my lil bro is in the market for a car. His civic was just recently sugar tanked after he put a replacement motor in. I know, shitty timing right?

well the civic was a piece of shit anyway.

anyway, Im trying to help him find a reliable car for him to go back and forth from school and wherever else. All he really cares about is car audio...he could drive a car with 92hp and be happy. He sure wasnt far from 92hp with his DX civic hahaha.,


anyway, What kinda cars are good for car audio and are really reliable?? He doesnt want another honda again tho. We are looking for cars around 4000ish.

it doesnt have to be a focus or anything, for some reason he loves my focus but said he wouldnt own one himself. but yet LOVVVVVVVVVVES when i hit 5000rpms :)


also please let me know WHAT YEAR, MAKE/MODEL, and also what mileage is good to get,

well like I mentioned in the post, He does not want a focus. I was going to sway him into getting a ZX3, but he said it looked like a ladybug [ it was red with black headlights lol]

if he doesn't care about what he drives... look for a use Kia, saturn, hyundai. you could probably find a newer one with warranty left as they have 100K mile warranty...

whats wrong with another honda?


Cars.com to get an idea of what he can get for 6k in the area.

I didnt want to say this to offend anyone, but he thinks the focus sedans are the ugliest car ever. almost as bad as the geo metro

he said he will prolly enjoy sedans when he gets old and has kids lol

I would suggest a Subaru, like an impreza or Legacy with the 2.5 liter Boxer 4. Very reliable cars and since you live in northern Illinois I'm sure you have a lot of winter so the AWD would be nice.
