I'm just asking how absurd is it. One of those 10k'* is very crazy, and the other is decently crazy.

I want a winter rat too. After I fix my rust I want the best possibilty of it not coming back for a long time. I'd like to go with another used Bonne if I could though.

I can tell you though that the bumpers on the Vibe (and I'm sure Matrix) are good. I rearended one at ~10mph and it had NO damage. (I got $2600 in damage tho )

10K Cdn..... not 10K USD.... USD... I probably would have said yes.

Yea the bumpers on the Vibe look mean.... I've heard a few good reports about them being able to take quite a "whack" and no damage.

I'd trade this one currently in my driveway for a new one... just, I need the funds... dont mind the thing on the right, its some film/developing defect, NOT a finger

Most of the performance of these smaller cars are pretty similar... zero to sixty for Civics, Corollas, Sunfires, etc etc are all just above 8 seconds... 5-speed, of course. Fastest I've seen is 7.9 seconds for a Corolla in Motor Trend. They seem to have a lot of zip, dad has trouble keeping the Bonny up with one on the highway
