Closer to $4,000 than $5,000 would be ideal, but hey... So a while ago I was going to pick up a magna. Decided against it at the last minute and current circumstances dictate that I don't really need something that large. So I'm thinking about a shitty little hatchback. (Ideally a hatch because I can fit my upright bass in there). I'm looking at a manual, something that is cheap to run/repair with pretty ubiquitous spare parts. Has anyone driven anything in this price bracket that meets all the requirements but is also a little bit fun? I'm not after a powerhouse, but something with sharp steering and a responsive engine would make an otherwise dull, practical purchase a little fun. I'm looking at mirage's, some getz's (Getzi?), Lancers etc... But I know nothing at all about cars so all opinions and first hand experiences would be great.
