need car recommendation....

my celica is on its last legs and the commute for my new job is pretty bad... 35 miles one way in heavy traffic.... looking to buy a new/used car with awesome mpg, but less than $15k.... looking for at least 32 mpg... here's what i can think of so far...

1. yaris hatch
2. mazda 2 hatch
3. civic? new HF gets 41 mpg, but MSRP is $19k
4. prius...?

Get a Miata. Still able to maintain a good mpg + is pretty fun to drive.

1slosedan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Re: need car recommendation....

Well, depends on how you want to look driving.. Sportier cars that fit the bill would be a DC2 integra, an EM1 civic, miata, or an RSX-S. I recommend looking into a diesel car, like an mk3 Jetta diesel.
