In any case, buying a car based off its future resale value is a dumb way to buy a car.
really? how long have you been driving? you see way more old civics and corollas on the road than vegas or pintos.

american small cars were junk for a long time and while that may have changed the perception will take longer to turn around.

my last six vehicles have been toyotas. in fact i still have my tundra. if you would have told me three years ago that i would one day buy a new ford i would have said you were nuts.

i recently rented a focus and i really liked the car. so after testing a couple other cars (Japanese) i bought a new focus. my main concern is long term reliability. but i was willing to take the chance. i still wouldn't own anything made by GM unless i was paid to drive it.
