Smile Teen buying her first car

Hi! I'm 18 and I will be buying my first car within the next month. I'm not going to pretend like I know alot about cars, because I don't. I'm fortunate my dad knows a bit, he's been a mechanic for years and he gave me a few suggestions of cars to buy. He suggested a Toyota Corolla, Mazda Protege, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, among a few others. I was interested in some different opinions on what to consider and what to stay away from. My budget is pretty tight. I have 3,500 dollars saved and my parents can't afford to help me out. I've looked at Edmunds and KBB for pricing and reviews. I'm hoping I can find something decent for my budget. I would prefer to have a smaller sedan that's good on gas and is an automatic. I've been driving my mom's 2001 Hyundai Elantra and I really like how it handles. Any suggestions or tips for when I'm buying would be greatly appreciated.
