My trusty old Civic '88 accomodates me just fine (I'm 6'1), and provides
enough power to get around, onto freeways and off. It's been pretty much
trouble-free and just recently passed (strict California "Enhanced Area")
smog without any effort. It's taken me places, long drives, short drives,
has carried two bikes (OK, front wheels taken off) in its trunk, and fits
four (not super-sized) people without being totally cramped.
Ask yourself how much power and space you really *need* vs. what you want.
We often make the mistake of confusing the two of them.

I could afford an Accord, but why would I want to buy one?
Jarrett - if you're on a tight budget, take all the additional costs into
account, such as
- gas (if you drive a lot, especially nowadays)
beside the pure cost of the car plus maintenance.
For pure economical reasons, an older (but well-maintained) Civic would be
really hard to beat.
