Sporty little focus I bought for commuting. It only has 8,500 miles on it and is very clean. It has Sync and can play music from your phone through Bluetooth or through a USB.
My average fuel economy is 39.1 mpg, mixed around town and highway. It's better than many hybrids and has the pep of a gas engine. If you're going on a long trip and need to borrow it for a while that can be arranged.
If you're looking to buy a standard and want to learn to drive one first, this is a good car to learn on. I'll even show you the basics. Rent it for a week for less than most car payments and get used to driving before you get yours.
