What other cars should I look out for?

Which cars to look for? My budget is between $5-7k. $10k is the most I can spend, but I prefer an amount closer to $5k.

I want a 4-door sedan (or a hatchback with 4 doors) that's reliable, has great gas mileage (4-cylinder, non-turbo, non-4WD), reliable, easy to work on (I can do basic maintenance/repairs), parts are cheap, et cetera.
The cars that come to mind are the Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas (Camrys too if they're the 4-cylinder kind). Another question I'm asking myself is what the mileage should be. I'm thinking no more than 120k. Maintenance records would be great too, but most people don't have that.
Civics and Corollas are in pretty high demand, so I just as many riced out Civics as bone-stock ones. So I thought I'd broaden my search and look into other vehicles as well. What other cars would you guys suggest that I look into?
