What can I say? I was in the market for a used car, and my price range was <$10,000. After spending a day trying to find the right car for me, and after a little convincing from my dad, I bought a 2001 Honda Accord EX Coupe.

It has the 4-banger along with the 5-speed manual. The car drives GREAT. Besides leather, it is loaded. It only has something like 63,000 miles on it too.
I was in the search for a reliable, comfortable, easy to maintain vehicle, that also held its value.
After lots of haggling with the sales manager, we got them down to $8,500. Not bad, considering the book value is over $11,000.
I am the very proud owner of my first Japanese car. If this car serves me well over the next several years, Honda may have found a customer for life.
