Default 06 Civic replacement

Hi,

Last week my daughter totalled our 06 Civic EX 152k miles.
She was on the interstate in NC, swerved to avoid an incident in
front, lost the rear end, hit the grass verge with a front wheel,
rolled the car twice over down an embankment, landed right side up and
continued forward at reduced speed into a fence.
No airbags deployed which seems odd.
Thankfully she was only bruised and did not shed any blood.
The cars door pillars were crushed on one side so the car will be
totalled.
Assuming the insurance company pay us full value for the car less $500
deductible - what to get as a replacement.
My wife and daughter want o get another 06 Civic but are there better
cars at this price range out there Honda or other.
What do you folks recommend. We have little cash to add to the
purchase at this time. I do most of my own maintenace.

Al.

First, glad she's OK.

On the replacement, if you're shopping six to eight year old cars,
isn't it more a matter of whether you can find one in great shape,
than exactly which one to buy? 2006-2008 is about when the Korean
cars first hit the quality mark, are those the ones you're also
considering - as well of course as Toyotas?

They also start cheaper and probably depreciate faster, might be a lot
cheaper than equivalent Hondas or Toyotas.

The question being what they are *worth*!
