In the market for a new car...

I need to tap into the collective's mind. I'm in the market for a new car; the kids are of driving age and I'll be giving them the Corolla. This happening in the ****tiest car markets in ages...

I only have a few parameters:

>Car has to be reliable
>Lowest .cd
>$9500 budget

I've recently been hyper-focused on the Toyota Prius. Why? Toyota reliability and ultra-slippery .cd (.26-.25, Gen dependent). But what I'm finding at the 9500 price point (to no surprise) are cars with 175K+ mileage. 175K and up...and I mean UP...granted, it seems the car can run and run...

But, what else should I be considering? Are there any diamonds in the rough I should also be looking at?
