I am trying to sell my STI to unload some debt and lower my monthly output of cash. I am going to buy a cheap car to beat the crap out of and basically keep until it dies. Preferably new in the 10k-15k range. I am not talking sticker price, I am talking about what you actually pay at the dealer, so I could probably go 18k to 20k on the sticker. My top picks now are a Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, maybe some kind of Scion(XB) or other Honda(Element). Give me some opinions on these and some suggestions on other cars.
