Honestly, it doesn't really matter what you buy, if you don't spend at least $3k, you are asking for trouble. The zetec foci are pretty reliable and cheap, but If you want to even mention the word "reliable", its time to get out your wallet and open that thing up.

Remember, our economy is suffering, so prices on used cars arent dropping as fast as they used too.
