you might also look at a '96 vintage Golf. Much more enjoyable driving experience as compared to the Civic (IMHO). I'm going throught he same exercise as you - I'm looking for a used 10K car that'll serve as an alternative vehicle/17 yr old son's vehicle for my family. I'm considering the Civic (as you are), the Integra (nicer than Civic - more money) and Golf (fun car, depreciates more and has higher ownership costs) among other choices. My kid is voting for a '00 Toyota Celica GT. Just like I voted for a Mustang 5.0 for my mom when I was 16. (They bought it too - major mistake).
