DON’T BE A PATRIOT
I’m looking for a mediumsized hatchback, possibly a Holden Cruze. I have about $13,000 to spend, so what is your opinion on these cars or can you recommend another make? I’m looking for economy and low mileage within this price range.

I would definitely not recommend the Cruze, even trying to be patriotic, but would steer you first to a second-hand Hyundai i30. It gets The Tick as a new car and should have some of the fiveyear factory warranty remaining at your price.
