Default Thinking of buying another daily driver.

What would you guys recommend?

Definitely used.

I was thinking of a used Corolla, Fusion or Fiesta.

What other cars do you guys think? I’m looking for a small car I guess.

Has to be no older than 5 years. 15k is the budget or so.

I know Fusions cost more though.

I’d like to have Car play in it too. For my iPhone

If you're looking at a Fusion I'd also consider a Mazda 6. The base Sport model is decently equipped and aggressively discounted both new and slightly used.

There are manuals out there too if you want one.

I have one of each. Also a Prius as well. It's dorky and loud inside but the room/comfort and economy is fantastic. I've hauled all kinds of ridiculous stuff in it too.

MPGs are like 14/20. I love the car though. Itís very fast for stock. (It feels faster than my O3 Cobra with a pulley, tune, exhaust, CAI) The new 392 Hemi is rated at 485 HP. But it actually puts out 510 at the motor of course.

Iím looking for a 4 cyl. Maybe with a turbo. Not sure yet.

And I want FWD.

And yes. I drive in the snow in the winter. But. Not too much.
