I'm considering 4 options and I'm so confused. I like to buy a reliable car with higher MPG that also will have less problem if I want to sell it in a year or two. I might also keep it so durability is a good option. I'm not a car crazy so I don't go for frequent changes however I want to be able to sell with a reasonable loss.

My options:
2013 Mazda 3 i sport with 51 k milage for $12k
2014 Elantra with 20 k milage for $13.5k
2013 Corolla with 30 k milage for $12.8k or 2014 with 29 k milage for 14k
2013 Sonata with 44 k milage for $12.5 k

Which one do you suggest and recommend. Which one is a better value and will sell better at the future? Thanks.

    If you're just looking at total cost including repairs, mileage and resale value it's easy. Get the Corolla. Personally I'd buy either the Mazda 3 or the Sonata though. Picking would take some thinking. The Sonata is a bigger car and I like that, while none of the others are as fun to drive as a Mazda 3 and I like that too.

    I'd take the 2014 Corolla. its the new body style, and will have the strongest resale value. However, the Mazda is every bit as good of car, if not better.

    I'd take the 3 but any of those are good choices. I'm sure you're already in one at this point. Do tell.
