Being the car guy Uncle that I am, I feel a certain obligation to steer my niece into the direction of the car I would have my kid drive. Budget, about $5K or less. Must haves: stick shift. Must not have: dealer ownership with no history or service – I hate that.
So on today’s Craigslist search around Ann Arbor, I came up with the above listed again below. The Mazda with no price would be great but most likely out of the price pony.

2001 HONDA CRV EX silver – $3700 (Ann Arbor)
