We've narrowed our choices to a four door sedan, that's in between the yaris/ versa and accord/camry ... so we're looking at the 2009 corolla, mazda 3, civic or nissan sentra. all base models, no gimmicks + automatic transmission + air condition priority is for front seat space, low gas consumption and the one that would most likely cost less in parts and maintenance in the long run considering driving it 20km a day to and from work and a half a day of driving trip once a year. This is going to be our car for a long time, we're planning on financing it. I am going to visit the dealerships in a couple of days to test drive them. which would you prefer or generally recommend and why ?
