Stay away from Neon -- it's a little car that's little bit Too Hyped both 
by the ads and U.S. car mags -- it's really a horrible car (probably except 
the engine, which is "peppy" compared with what's available in competing 
models). Stay away from Saturn, too -- excellent (idea'ed) dealership, 
lousy car.

As for Civic, it's quite hard to get a new car at $12,000 -- $15,000 is 
more like it in realistic sense (this is what I found out about a year 
ago doing tag-along with a potential buyer). In that category Nissan Altima 
and Toyota Corolla also exists (yes, that's the word -- they "exist"). Or 
that Toyota Paseo (rebadged Corolla? in two-door flavour). If you're 
looking at something less in $$$, there's Mitsu Mirage. Very Small Car, 
but you get get it for around $10,000 (almost) even. Nissan's reshaped 
Sentra is also around.

mobiles (among the wow mobiles) at Edmond's web site at
