My Sons first car was a last generation toyota corolla -
  • safe
  • reliable
  • not fast enough to get into much trouble
  • normally aspirated
  • decent insurance premium
  • great resale
  • cheap to maintain
  • great mpg

But it had a CVT...i truly despise CVT transmissions

Wonderful first car

Honda CRV: they made and sold so many of them that they are easy to find in the used market and cross shop them at dealers. I had one as the winter car to my former M3 and our son has one now. AWD, reliable, safe, and adequately underpowered to keep the kid and the insurance company in balance.

If you want something with the same formula but with a stick, then look at a used Honda Fit. It will be a little smaller and FWD, but is incredibly well packaged.

Our first CRV was a stick, but alas that is not longer an option. Living in Germany at the moment, does make a tad bit jealous of the diesel stick CRVs that the Europeans got.
