Manual Beater: 2011 Mazda 3

Sometimes you need a car that is just a car. It doesn’t need to be a statement about how rich you are (ahem Mercedes-Benz owners), or how eccentric you are (ahem Saab Owners) or how sporty old you are (ahem, Corvette owners). Sometimes a car just needs to get you from point A to point B in reasonable comfort…but it better well darn have a manual gearbox and a hint of fun from the driver’s seat. For less than $4k I don’t think you can get a newer car than a Mazda 3. Prove me wrong. Find this 2011 Mazda 3 offered for $3,950 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
