Yuck...i HATE the "cute" thing...you know, Toyota Echos and Honda Civics and the whole shibang...

I don't know about your fiance, but usually you can't "make" someone do anything. Like, if Murdock told me to pick between him and a Grand Prix..hehe...he'd either be living in the Grand Prix or i would be walking back and forth to work.
You could always pull up some safety ratings...never looked @ them for the tiburon, but i seem to remember a cop saying at my dad'* friends' accident (he t-boned a car) that tiburons have one of the best side impact safety ratings. Don't know how true it is...inclined to doubt...
Tell her they are cheap tin cans that fall apart fast :o

SSsuperchargedEi>> Couldn't put up with that...I had an ex bf who used to be right into the Rustangs and i used to always poke and prod him to get a bonneville because the stupid things always broke down and smelt and folded like organs. Hey, he'* an ex, right?

Or you just get her some Ford Contour, better yet...just let her pick
Yeah they hold too much value, they cost WAY too much for what you're getting.

Contour, UGH i know way too many people with contours.

Yes, they are expensive at purchase, because they hold their value....its one of the things about VW that most mainstream cars don't have

There'* nothing wrong with going Japanese

Something reasonably sized, reliable, and reasonable sporty should do. I personally wouldn't trust anything other than a 3800 when it comes to GM'* cars, so uh, um, yeah

Yea but there are people on this site that are all bout "Made in the USA" when it comes to cars. But the or 80% of things they buy are made in a different country

I could care less where something was made. As long as it'* reasonably priced, holds it'* value and doesnt break apart, I'll be content.
Let her buy something she wants, and if it falls apart or is crap it'* her fault. Do some research on what she wants before buying and if you like what it says go for it.

well ya know those hyundai'* have 10 year/100k mile warrenties which means you can beat the car to hell then take it right to hyundai. if no to the tibby, then check out the XG350L. It is by far the most nicely equipped vehicle for under $30k that i've ever seen. just trying to help out...

My wife is dead set on getting a lime green New Beetle with cream leather interior. I told her as long as it'* the turbo model, heheh, and they rated excellent in crash tests. I was amazed... ...So, I wouldn't mind if she got one...
