Hey guys I'm after a daily shitbox to drive to and from work. Something cheap and economical to run is what I'm after.

I've been trawling through internet ads but thought I'd give it a try here, long shot I know...

My requirements:

* Cheap (<$2k yeah I'm a tightass) geek
* Has rego
* Tidy interior
* <200,000kms
* Preferably manual
* Cheap to run can also means Falcodore with gas

Let me know if anyone knows of anything that fits the criteria? Mucho gracias Very Happy

Swift GTi.
Or even just a Cino.
Parts are dirt cheap if anything breaks (on the swift forums there are threads titles "crashed swift, parts from $2")
Even though ours isn't stock, we got 440kms from 30L of petrol. I believe we got about 400 from 30Ls with a pac run.

I thought EGs go for a bit higher. Maybe they're within my budget now.

Is that redlinegti.com? I'm only looking for a base model, not the GTi version....is there another Swift forum?

If its a daily, I'd add "has air con" to the list of requirements.

Not having air con is a bitch in summer.

I'm used to no air con, prefer fresh air instead.

Even when I drive a car that has air con, I usually don't use it.

The only downside with the Swift is the lack of power steering, which is a bitch to park.

Aside from that, its a great daily. It's small enough to fit in tight places if you can turn the wheel, it gets good economy even if you rev the engine out occasionally, and its not a cop magnet.

I'm used to no creature comforts Want to buy: Daily Shitbox Icon_tongue

My current car has no power steering, no side mirrors, no air con, no electrc windows, is manual and the car dimension itself is pretty long and wide. Surprisingly didn't take me that long to get used to Want to buy: Daily Shitbox Icon_razz
