$900 -- 1998 Suzuki Swift - 1.3L, 5-speed with 60,000 km (~40k mi.)

EPA: 31 city / 38 hwy / 34 combined

The ad's in French, but the main points are:

- complete repair history, all bills saved
- repainted; suspension mounts have been reinforced
- well maintained, tune-up every 3k kms
- practical little car that uses very little gas and is in good shape, ready to drive

Actually, I've been watching this car - it was originally listed for around $2k a month or so ago. But even with those super low miles, I wouldn't pay $2k for one of these that has already had underbody rust issues. But at a $900 asking price, it's tempting.
