    Check the Hyundai Tiburon. Cheap, looks good, decent interior and good gas mileage.

    This is true, because i don't really need to be posting, because i don't usually have the expertise to answer questions, and i don't really have any of my own i still read here though :)



    Yea, i'd say go with a Tiburon :)



    People do not give these car's enough credit IMO.

    They have very nice interiors, extremely sexy exterior looks, and are fun to drive, as well as good with mileage (and actually, are quite reliable if you dig hard enough, you find that they could actually be up there by corollas or civics).


    They also are very cheap now-a-days, especially if you get a manual transmission (atleast in my area)

    Ex. 2003 with 62k miles and it is the highest trim level and has a 6-speed manual can be had for $$6,300 from a dealer (small dealer not a Hyundai Dealer)



    EDIT: and if this helps, i have a 4 cyl, and mainly city driving im getting about 22mpg (that being said, i kinda jump off the stop signs/red lights :p)

    I'm looking for something also thats fuel efficient in the $6-7k range.

    The cars I like are the yaris and scion xa. I'm going to be looking at a 2006 Scion XA w/ 39k miles for 7k today... It gets 30mpg city 40mpg highway, and thats what I'm after.

    I doubt you can get a TC for that cheap though.

    Plenty of TC's in the 6-8k range that are salvaged in my area... I wouldn't buy one with any significant front end damage, or if the airbags had deployed. Clean title ones typically go for upwards of 10k, depending on the year.

    Salvaged cars are essentially only for those with deep, unrequited feelings of an intensely mashochistic nature. That or folks who are going to tear the thing down to bare metal anyway.
