Just wanted to see what ideas oppo has for me, I need a good cheap DD to last me a couple years while I rebuild my credit and life in general. Obviously no automatics, reliability is good but I can do a little wrenching and I’m more concerned with total cost of ownership so if parts are cheap and it’s easy to work on I’m ok with something with character. Current frontrunners are a 2008 Honda Fit Sport and a 2005 Volvo S40 2.4i. What else should I look for? (Talking more in generalities not necessarily specific ads)

I wish it was this color, always loved the purple.
