Default Perfect 'first car'???

I'm in high school and I am just starting to consider what car would be good for me. I'm middle class so I'm obviously not going for anything fancy. I was thinking about a Honda Accord because they seem to be safe, not very expensive, and good gas mileage. But I am open to other suggestions. I don't want anything totally ridiculous but it MUST have good gas mileage.thanks

Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Geo Prizm, Ford Ranger 4 Cyl. Ford Escort, Ford Focus. They are all good choices with really good gas mileage

can't go wrong with a 1991 Toyota Corolla...That's my first car... it's my parent's, and they got it in 2002 when my dad's best friend of over 30 years died. It had 227,000 miles on it then and now has 291,500 and counting! it gets 40mpg on the highway.Find one in good condition with fairly decent paint and you will have a dependable car with great gas mileage.The one i drive, which of course isn't mine, because my parents own it, has the 1.6L 4A-FE motor with a 3-speed automatic.I personally think the car holds a certain centimental value to it, and it's a cute little car and has it's own unique look to it.The other car i drive every now and then is my dad's 1985 Oldsmobile 442 (basically a Cutlass, but in a limited edition. The "442", btw, is not the engine size. It's a 307 with a "4" barrel carburetor, a "4" speed automatic, and "2" (dual) exhaust tips.)

I have a 87 accord and it runs great. I am hoping by the end of the school year to convert my car to look more like a r34 nissan skyline with the octane r34 body kit. but i would say if you don't want the manual then look into a newer accord or civic or whatever you want it's going to be your car and you can do whatever you want to it.

nothing beats a Honda civic, it has a reasonable price and can be modified if you want to. You can do a lot with a civic.
