Help me shop for a car!

I've narrowed this down to 3 vehicles (though I reserve the right to add more as I find them). All prices are their asking price... not what I would pay.

2002 Ford Focus SVT w/ 72k miles - $5500
2002 VW Jetta Wagon w/ 98k miles - $6300
1993 BMX 740i w/ 50k miles - $4000

The Focus is the only one that is a stick shift but the other two are damn nice, fit the budget, and I would not mind driving any of them.

Jetta Wagon


BMW


Ford (no image attached... stock pic only)


Doing my research but any first hand knowledge on these cars would be a huge help.

Yep, you were right. Used performance type vehicles are extremely reliable and have almost always been very well cared for by responsible owners.

TBH, these are my criteria

1. reliable
2. not boring


The Ford Focus isn't a boring car?

I bought the Focus SVT 5 days later. Not the one I started talking about in this thread but instead a blue one I found in Ft. Worth. I took a Greyhound bus to there and drove it back to Wichita. I loved this car.

Loved.

I sold it today. I was hoping to find a kid that wanted a cool little car that would fix her up and be his first car or some other "romantic" ending for my time with it. Alas... no one bit and I couldn't keep it in the driveway any longer.

Sold it today at Carmax and I am bummed out. I don't think I've ever been so attached to a car. lol

Fare thee well... I hope your next home is a good one.
