Get yourself a 06 and newer Jetta TDI. Amazing mileage, Tons of torque and amazing ride. Its probably the best car you can get! And dont be off set about the miles on it, these cars for at least 500,000 miles!

So first of all I want to inform you "DON'T GET A GERMAN CAR IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD MAINTENANCE". My mom currently owns a BMW 335i, she just had issues with her fuel injection, A/C, seat warmers, windows. She was lucky though because they were all covered under her 100,000miles warranty. Be aware that all German cars are bound to have electrical issues. I say stay on the safe side w/ something else like Hondas, Toyota, etc. They are very reliable. Having a BMW doesn't make you ballin' unless your BMW is up to date or an M series, if that's the case :D

Here are some Non-German cars that might be in the $13,000 budget range:
If you're into performance:
05-09 WRX (sedan) (don't get the 04 because it has bad wheel fitment)

If you're into luxury:
04-07 Infiniti G35 (coupe or sedan)

If you're into saving gas mileage, sporty, performance:
00-07 Honda S2000 (The 06+ ones have Traction Control if you're scared of sliding out tongueface)
04-06 Acura RSX (Coupe)

Depends on what model the car is. BMW's are pretty well engineered for the most part, so usually when repairs are needed it's most likely going to be a "wear" item. My brother had an E36 and E46 M3 with no major problems and I've owned a E86 M Coupe I've never had a serious issue.
