1994 Honda Civic 1.6 VTEC from North America
Rolls Royce for low income families
My Honda Civic is not really factory, but I'm sure that the factory ones are very good.
The car had a racing engine, but that blew up about a year ago. It's got a brand new engine now with about 40,000 miles on it.
The only other problems would be the tires leaking air, so I have to top the air up every week.
Like I said, this car has been fully tricked out, low rider body-kit, automatic doors (no door handles, push a button to get in). Paint job, low profile 17 inch tires, racing suspension, brakes, and steering. I drove non-custom Honda Accords and Civics, and since then I've always wanted a Honda. Now I have a factory motor transmission in my car, and it's really cheap on gas, and reliable. Not really all that fast, takes some time to pick up speed, but handles like a race car (like I said, the suspension is really beefed up).
I got this car from my neighbor, and when he had it, somebody hit him in the rear-end, but thankfully it's only cosmetic, frame and nothing else is damaged, except the trunk is held by a bungee cord. Car drives straight, I can let go of the wheel, rest my knee, and lay back and relax when I'm going to North Carolina.
I love my car and even Honda. I would recommend a Honda, preferably early 90s Civics (coupe, not hatchback), and Accords.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you are lucky, you can fix your slow leaking tires for about $3-$4: Get a set of valve cores with a valve core tool. Go to an air compressor at a gas station. Remove the old cores and clean the seats with the handy tool, put in the new cores and pump up the tires to specification. That should make a huge difference. If it doesn't help, you are only out a few dollars.

I'm sorry, you fail to explain why this car is a Rolls Royce for low income families. I would really like to know why. I think it's more like an Acura Integra for those who can't afford one. An old Buick or Cadillac is a poor man's Rolls Royce.
