2005 Pontiac Sunfire, two door, but seats four or five. Can fit three children or skinny adults, seatbelts installed, in back. City, 15-18 mpg, highway, 18-25 mpg. Has very roomy trunk. Mine is still on road, given to my sister as her car got repossessed when she lost her job due to Covid. It has 200k+ miles, still runs fine. Down part is it looks dated and kind of ugly, also, electric windows and moonroof get stuck and are expensive to repair.
I traded in yet another another car, 1987 Nissan station wagon hatchback. It got good mileage, 18-22 city, up to 28 hwy, but eventually, body rusted away, didn’t pass safety inspection. If you can find one without rust, it’s a good deal.
I traded it in for parts and bought 1992 Toyota Forerunner, 4x4, cap, extended cab. 200, 200 mi. on it, but new engine. Gets about 13 mpg in mountains, fully loaded, 20+ mpg light load, on highway.
Everything manual! A no frills vehicle, but works great for me.
