So may have to get a new(used) car for an internship in Savannah this summer. Looking at mazda 3 (hatch), miatas, s2k, bmw(e30/36/46), golf... budget of around the 10k-15k mark.
Leaning towards an 06 miata. It seems like a solid choice. light, rwd, cheap. I'm most concerned about maintenance costs in the next 3-4 years until I finish undergrad/grad school. Saying that, this keeps me away from the bmws since I think they may be a bit more pricey to maintain as compared to others.
In short, I'm just looking for a fun car with a manual that will be reliable for the next 3-4 years.
Thanks in advance.
