I have a clean car with really good gas mileage. I get about 39 mpg on the highway. It's a small car but very roomy on the inside. It is a hatch back and the seats can be put down if you need to fit furniture or any large boxes inside. I also have a bike rack that I can attach to the car if necessary. It holds one bike. I live relatively close to UNC Chapel Hill campus and the center of Carrboro, making this a great option for students who need to run errands out of town.
Unfortunately you must provide your own audio cable if you want to play music from your phone, because one of my renters stole my cable.
