Need some opinions???

Ok my friend is looking to get a car. He wants something fairly cheap, reliable, that runs good is economical, and has good cargo room. Yes the focus sort of fits these but, he plays drums and from experience we found out his whole set will not fit in a focus, and sadly my focus has some interior plastic battle scares from it.....but any way what other cars do you guys recommend. He wants to get a kia sportage.....lol he doesnt care what it looks like either, obvisouly, hes my friend so im not going to put him down about thinking in such a way. But give me your ideas. Thanks

I've had my ENTIRE 5 piece drum kit including 7 cymbal stands and a bunch of other stuff in my focus no problem..... I also put down some blankets before so nothing would get scuffed. It can be done, I've done it many times and I've actually got more then a 5 piece in there before.

i am amzed at how much stuff you can fit in the focus as long as you dont just throw it in. i would imigine that if he feel he needs somthing bigger than a zx3 you can try to sell him on a focus wagon. if he still wants to avoid a focus then some of the bigger wagons i.e. tauras, accord might be a better size.

haha..word I did the same. I had so much stuff in there I had to lean the front chair forward a little bit.

How about a Focus wagon or a KIA Spectra 5...my little brother wants to get one of those. I do like the looks of the new KIA Sporate too so I think thats a good choice.
