    I really dont look for it to be a nice car, just so long as its in good shape, i can keep it that way, decent miles on it, fairly good mpg, and its not going to put me in debt till the end of my life to buy it.

    4. Simplicity: The ease of repair and maintenance.

    5. The availability and cost of parts.

    These are the priorities I use whenever I consider purchasing a vehicle. I expect performance to be adequate, but I don't need a hot rod. I expect it to carry what I need to carry.

    Things I DON'T need are styling, power windows and doors, A/C, a fancy stereo system, embellishments, etc.

    Government regulations have overdone safety (air bags, crushable ends, etc.). I consider these undesirable and prefer a car without them. Give me a car that is sturdy, like the ones built in the 1970's that could take a 5 mph impact with NO damage. Try that with a car made today.
    I like your list, but I do like power doors/windows and AC.
    If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
    "But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.

    Cost, someone else mentioned reliability, gas mileage. Perhaps in that order. Poor university/graduate student's needs: need to drive across big state in cold weather on the cheap.
