Recommend a car for me. - Page 2

post #16 of 78
Save up another $10k or get a loan. You can get a pretty hot car (used) for $20k. At $10k you're better off buying used American from the 70s for style.

Gasoline is going to get outragous, so think about mileage. In general, euro cars are more expensive to maintian (parts tend to cost more for them). I love my acura rsx type-s. Currently, it has over a 100k miles and still drives like a dream. A great commuter car.

Get a loan of a couple k, get a recent Civic.

I ran into a Porsche owner the other day who said his mint, 1998 Boxster with 78K miles is only worth $9K. There are older Porsches out there with low miles for a low price. Otherwise, I like the suggestion of a Mini.

Save your money and get a new Honda Fit instead of a used Civic. The Civics tend to hold their value well. A new Fit (or a Nissan Versa or Toyota Yaris or Scion xD) are better value propositions than a used Civic.

Also, a 10K European car will cost WAY, WAY more in the long run in repairs and service.

Fuck it, I'll just buy a Vespa and spend the remaining $8k on hookers and coke.

good luck finding a vespa for $2K - even used ones trade in the $3k+ category, at least in NY they do.

I didn't think so; regardless, that's the better outcome. On topic point -- perhaps a used little Pontiac convertible or a Miata? The Saturn convertible is really nice but probably too pricey on the secondary market. ~ Huntsman

Used Corolla.

10k got me a 1 year old Ford Taurus with 21k miles on it.
And I get decent (not great) mileage on it, 26-29 mpg.

Jeep Wrangler

I know some people who have good results buying used from the rental car companies.

Check out:

and search under 10k.

The list for my zip code included a VW Beetle, Hyundai Sonata, PT Cruiser, Taurus, Grand Am and Neon.

Whatever gives you the most MPG.

That's what I did.
