Need some ideas
I am helping my girlfriend in finding a car and I am having a hard time. She is looking to spend around 5-7k. At first I told her let's get an Audi TT or something but those were a little over the price range. She loves Euro cars but what can I get for that much that would work well? Oh and she said she wont mind having a manual tranny either i definetly smiled! But yeah, any tips??

Reliable used cars
These are CR's lists of reliable cars from the 2005 survey. These are the specific models with above-average Used Car Verdicts, spanning the model years 1998 through 2005. CR Good Bets are cars that have multiple years of above-average Used Car Verdicts. (Also see our lists of used cars to avoid.) CR Good Bets and Bad Bets include only the models for which we have sufficient data for at least three model years. Models that were brand new in 2004 or 2005 do not appear. Problems with the engine, engine cooling, transmission, and drive system were weighted more heavily than other problems.
