Call it geek chic. The Rabbit and Golf have been among the best-selling cars worldwide for decades—but haven’t really caught on in America. The hatchback’s interior packaging is remarkably handy, whether transporting second-­row passengers or loading up for a road trip. The Rabbit feels a bit built-to-price, but simultaneous with its rename to “Golf” in 2010, the interior fit and finish and features improved markedly—without detracting from the agile and secure handling, comfortable ride, and supportive front seats. It has the same thirsty engine as the Jetta.

I don’t think you should recommend any Hybrid as a good used car. If a customer wants a car under 10K, he likely won’t be able to afford to replace the Hybrid batteries when they go bad, and they will go bad. $4-8K in additional costs makes the under 10K hybrid an unecessary expense.

slide-3452250 Image Credit: AOL 2006 Mini Cooper S – Brandon TurkusFor just $10K, you can find a wide array of vehicles from the new Mini’s first (and best) generation. Thanks largely to its 1.6-liter, supercharged four-cylinder, there’s a terrier-like feistiness to the old R53, as this generation was known. While fine on its own, the Mini enjoys a robust aftermarket that can easily increase the standard 170 horsepower to something even more potent. Seriously, a modded Mini is a surprising straight-line performer. Also, a few simple tweaks will unleash the absolutely intoxicating whine from the Roots-type supercharger. But by far, the best thing about the old Cooper S is the way it drives. The R53, was built before Mini worried about silly things like ride comfort. It’s rough and uncouth on bumpy roads, but is absolutely dynamite on the right piece of pavement. Aside from maybe the Mazda MX-5, there is simply no car on the market that boasts such entertaining behavior at such a low price. As for why you should go for a 2006, specifically, there are a few reasons. Mini offered to paint the roof in Pure Silver, the only year such an option was available on the standard car, meaning there are a number of rare, standout color schemes (like my personal car’s Chili Red and Pure Silver color scheme). More importantly, though, 2006 was the final year of this generation, meaning the wrench-turners in Oxford should (and I say should) have turned out their best, most reliable work. That’s not to say the R53 is perfect – it’s English after all – but it’s a wildly entertaining, very handsome take on the small performance car.
