Which one of these cars do you recommend?
Spouse wants a hatchback style or small car for small distances, preferably used (1-4 years old), somewhere around $15K. Currently looking at Mazda 3, Ford focus and Honda fit.
First time driver too. We have a Honda Accord and don't prefer an SUV.
What car is the best when it comes to insurance costs long term maintanence costs? Don't mind spending a bit more to save long term as cars depreciate fast. Any recommendations from the list above?
