WTB: Cheap Reliable Daily Driver Good Gas Milage Illinois

Winter is coming, and I'm not putting the SS through another Chicago winter. I'm looking for a daily driver that is inexpensive. I need something that gets good gas milage because it's a 35 mile haul to work. I would also like something reliable, because breaking down in the middle of a snow storm sucks. I have been looking at saturns, but haven't found anything I really like yet, so I'd be willing to consider just about anything if it was mechanically sound and the right price. I live in North Aurora, Illinois, and work in Addison. I'd prefer something local, as I drove all the way to PA for a camaro a couple years ago and got there and it had a bum clutch. Please post or email me at [email protected] if you have something I might be interested in. Thanks.

-Mike

I have an '04 Suzuki Forenza LX, 5 spd, with only 15K miles for $10K if you're interested - in Lake Zurich, IL.

Great gas mileage - not sure how much you want to spend though.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm looking for something for quite a bit less. Probably in the $2k-$3k range. Something disposable and that I can pay cash for up front.

Don't think I'm interested in the Corolla, thank you though. With the BMW, how many miles does it have on it? Stick or auto? Does the car currently need any work? AC? Power options? Where are you located?
