Getting a daily driver got about 6k for it.

>22 mpg city
>4 cylinder is fine or v6.
>Feels fast but doesn't have to be fast.
>Automatic preferred because I don't want to learn manual for my daily driver.
>From at least 2005.

What car is this /o/?

Carsforsale had a lot of listings but most had 150k+ miles and I don't want that many miles on it.

Nah bro the sticky cars are mostly manual optimum and high mileage in my area.

>>14210242

7th gen Honda Accord. Get a 4 cylinder LX or (preferably) EX.

I average 23 in the city, 35 on the highway. Plenty of power. Comfy as fuck and it has plenty of space.

I got mine for under $4k with 200k miles. It is in absolutely perfect mechanical shape.

Pic related. My car. 04 EX-L.

Hyundai Accent
You can find a 07 for 5k with an auto.
Go on AutoTrader or CL
>>
>>14210320
Wouldn't the transmission be close to going out on an automatic with that many miles?

Looks clean though.
>>
>>14210322
Not necessarily. Most automatic transmissions will last quite awhile, especially if maintained. If you want reliability and durability, you gotta go Japanese.

Mine was a 1-owner with all the service records from 2004 to today.

You should be able to find a 2005 or 2006 Accord in good condition for your budget. If you want more detailed info or advice, DriveAccord is a great forum with lots of helpful threads and folks.

>Everything I just mentioned before is now irrelevant
Say you are driving along on a 2 lane road, there's someone in front of you who is VERY slow, in some random piece of shit car. You have a turn coming up in the lane you are currently in, but it's a while out, and it's going to be an even longer while out while you are stuck behind this jackass.
Suddenly, you have just found an opening in the left lane for you to overtake. You start to overtake the guy, but alas! He's matching speed, so you can't overtake. As you're accelerating, the cars way up front are coming closer. You're now no longer able to overtake.
You try waiting for him to pass, but he's slowing down again! He's blocking you, trying to block you from making your turn to teach a lesson - you aren't allowed to overtake dickheads

This would be avoided if your car was able to downshift into a faster gear to provide a little extra push that auto's can't do.

Found this one in the nearby search;

Appreciate any help or cars that stick out.

>>14210391
Couldn't I just slow down and get behind the dickhead and then pass the really slow driver then overtake the dickhead anyway?

Seems a bit like you're reaching at this point.

>>14210391
What the fuck are you talking about?

>>14210409
Plebby auto's under 15k don't downshift. You put pedal to the metal and you'll slowly go a little faster. Even a crappy SUV fully loaded with passengers will keep up to an extent. If you want a fast-ish car that doesn't get smoked by bullshit people movers, don't buy an auto for under 10k.

Faster cars in your price range have terrible mpg. The list of criteria you have is pretty much mutually exclusive, you can't have it all.

Accord is a full size sedan while a civic is more compact.

Less weight, less room, faster feels and better mpg.

I was going to suggest vehicles but i hate you now buy a corolla

similar situation as OP, this is pretty much the car I'm narrowing down to though it's a little pricier in my area. Also it seems super bulky, and I'm driving mostly city, so how is it with turns and getting into tight spaces?

Also how does it compare to a Mazda3 or Chevy Cobalt SS?
>>
V6 Camry or Accord V6. You'll be glad you didn't get some odd ball hoopty.
>>
>>14210247
dont listen to these faggots theyve been meme'd against AT. IMO "learning" manual is worth the horsepower and gas mileage benefit. basically each gear corresponds to tens of miles per hour and so on
>>
>>14210223
also, if you dont mind the maintenance, a 2.2 OHV cavalier has one of the easiest-to-work-on engines
>>
>>14215070
Don't listen to this guy, I have a el manuel transmission and it fucking sucks ass in stop and go traffic.
Some nigger crashed at the tunnel and I spent 1.8 hours in fucking stop and go traffic. That nigger better have died.
