stay away from the matrix if ur tall...heh, its not a fun car but has a cool interior.

we have had a couple hundred lbs in the back of my buddies focus while traveling and being lowered it never bottomed out. its a great handling car but lacks performance stock...enough for daily driving but certainly needs to be modified :).

Cool, I actually need the car to work and to take people around. I donít want a big car; I have found ZX3 for a bit more than $5K. I will be caring boxes and magazines I'm not sure how much weight would be but some days I use my 87 Celica. I guess the ZX3 will do the job, as for performance The Celica has no more that 120hp I think so the 130 hp of the ZX3 will do, if not I can get some minor mods to improve it a bit.

Hey man welcome....well the ZX3 is a very good car and plenty of cargo room..but if ur going to be carring boxs and stuff maybe u shoudl look into a ZX5..the 4 door model..it will be alot easier to put and take out those boxes and if ur going to be caring people as well its easier for them to get in....but check both them out and see what u think is best..good luck

I would love to get the XZ5 but $$ is the problem, Unless I find a ZX5 for cheap, I cant pay more than $200 a month, because I'm still paying my Stang but I'll have it in mind. I also need to check insurance wise.
I wonít be caring boxes and people at the same time. I work alone.
Thanks for all your inputs.
What are other difference between the ZX3 and ZX5?

How much should I expect to pay for a ZX3 or ZX5? I might get a 2000 or 2001. Any ideas? As for $$ and Mileage and what things should I check for in the car?

well if it is a 2000, check to see if the recalls were performed,, by a dealership. mileage should not be over 45-50k....i would hope, I don't think i would pay much more than 6k for a 2k2..or around 5k for a 2k1....I would get a zx5 if i were you. Getting people into the rear of the zx3 becomes a pain...Thats all i can think of right now...
