Pretty much topic. I need a new/used car that is reliable and is halfway-decent. Opinions?

Word, you both make good points.
Here's my deal:
I do not want to be paying any lease/payment once I move out of my parent's house. While I'm at home, I won't have any expenses besides gas (~$150 month) and money for going out/dining out. This is why I plan on paying off a loan for a car quickly (2 years) so that when I move out I won't have to deal with paying it monthly because I'll have a slew of other bills (Rent, Utilities, Food, Upkeep). I want to take advantage of living at home by saving a bunch of money and buying a car. If any of this doesn't make sense or is a bad idea, let me know.
Also, if it helps at all I need this next car to last me a maximum of 5 years. I get promoted after 5 years and when that happens, money won't be an issue at all because I'll be making big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
