Where is the Cad. 2005 DTS mine only get 34 MPG on Hwy and 20 in town seat 5 and has a real trunk and can pull something beside a toy wagon. O and by the way at 50 mph I stand a better chance than the Jap tin can cars.

I dare you to purchase one of these cars anywhere near your stated prices. I will keep my paid for 2002 Cavalier and happily drive by these torture chambers in four door 30 mpg comfort.

Don't ever get a MINI. Just don't. I own one right now and it's costing me an arm and a leg to repair parts that just naturally break over time. Such as the timing chain guide/timing chain, turbo oil supply line that fails over time, brakes and brake sensors that's freakin expensive... those three I listed is costing me $3,000 to fix. And that's not through a dealer. Add about a grand and a half on top of that if you want it through a dealer and you might get a free car wash with that. 

- bitter 2009 MINI Cooper S owner. 

ps. very fuel efficient though. Currently I'm averaging between 32-33mpg.

Not very safe, not very fuel efficient... But then you are safer in an econobox than most SUVs and pickup trucks, even though they're loaded with ABS, stability control, and all the other gimmicks to try to make them safer (for example, compare actual stopping distances and slalom course times between a Cobalt and Tundra).  Guess who's going to roll and get squished in an accident?  And FYI, head-on accidents are comparatively rare.

 

And fuel efficiency?  I get 18 mpg in a 1934 Ford truck with one of the first V8s ever made, not to mention ancient bearings, heavy tires and wheels, 1/4" steel all around, etc.  And everyone thinks 30 mpg is supposed to be good?

 

Finally, good luck getting the listed cars with less than 120k or so for ten grand.  There are cars out there for less money, with less miles - they just don't make the Asian list (and VWs... the least reliable, most expensive cars to maintain).
