How does he drive it. If driven with MPG in mind, it will kill your car around town.

Unless it'* an SVTF... at which point, he didn't get it for the MPG.

Dude, I have to come heavily against the Fvckus. I'm sorry, but the first few years they had massive problems with fires, suspension failures(right-rear susp. just falling off at highway speeds), steering failures, and electrical gremlins. I know that they've worked out most of the problems, but I can't recommend that anyone buy a car with such a horrible history of problems. Truthfully, if you want a good small car that sips fuel and still gets decent performance, and can't stomach your local GM dealer, take a look at a Neon(stickshift, not auto), Civic, or, best, a Sentra. The Sentra may be a bit less reliable than the other two, but the perfomance factor is a lot higher.
Also, don't get a Mitsu. Now that the venerable 3.0L has been retired, their motors just don't have the reliability or power.

Why do you need a new car anyways? You're in HS if i remember correctly, just spend your money on hanging out, movies, video games etc.

And paint your lower trim.

Or actually do something other than put stickers on your purple car. The money You are talking would go along ways for mods. Speaking of purple, if you buy a Ford Chris, Barney will suffer unimaginable horrors. Still got 'em dont Ya Boost?

Meh, I'm really not to excited about the putting the gas in the SSEi part. Now that it'* mentioned, I may look for a Neon instead of the Focus, I like the Mopars better anyway. I'm not worried about problems, if I get a little car like that I'm gonna drive it until it starts giving me problems and get something else.

Yep, Neighbors daughter had a '02, it'* in the wrecking yard after a ton of cash was dumped into it and the rear shock mount area rotted/cracked. If you are that determined to go small then go (gag) rice.
