It's not my first car, however, I should have got one as my first car - an EG Honda civic, these things are bulletproof. I purchased mine from an old ladies son, who was left to him as she was 92 and gave up driving. Anyway, she was the first owner only used it rarely so got it with 25k on the clock for 1000 quid, now it's kicking just over 50k.. got it a year ago, it's traveled from Oxford to Leeds a few times ;), never skipped a beat.
Mine was advertised for 1600 - serviced every 6months at Honda (sometimes every 250miles it worked out at).. MPG is so good - mines the LSI model (1.5 16v about 90odd bhp, so for a light car isn't too slow off the mark). It's harder to get a manual on low mileage, as the oldies love their autos, but they love these and you're able to pick up an economical bullet proof mobile. Wait around and a manual will come up.
I've changed the cambelt out of choice, just to be safe and that's it..
Just a well recommended suggestion :D
Nice clean example, once again an auto but seems an alright price:
