offer $800.
that's a lot of miles for a 4 banger.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1196163


really? do you think i can get a car that can just get me to point a to point b for less then 1,500? like i dont even care about style just as long as it can run
 Quoting: TheEndTimez


that car seems pretty good.205ks isn't a real lot,

if you just want a simple ,economical, reliable vehicle a jap 4 cyl is the way to go. I think toyotas

are one of the best, have an old 87 hilux that has just refuses to die. paid 2 grand for it seven

years ago

...well, i bought a 97 mazda 323 1.8 3 years ago with
70,000 km for 1000 euros, great car, NO PROBLEMS except
a bit of rust and a busted shock absorber, other than that
just oil, brakes & tires. car has over 120,000 km now.
I once got that junk car to go 130mph on the autobahn =)

Also my uncle still has my old 1988 grand marquis with
over 200K milles and tells me that it turns on every
single time.
-----------------------------------------------------
...just try to get the newest possible car with
the lowest possible milleage you can,
oh, and make sure it was a "garaged"
as opposed to a "parked outside all
the time" car, trust me on that one.

I've never paid more than $2000 for a car, and always in cash. If you (o.p.) can't or won't fix your own cars and you're not wealthy, you really shouldn't be driving IMO. Fixing cars is half the fun of owning them, and the older the better.

here are the car details

Kilometers 205000

Way too much money for a 17 year old car with over 200K on it.

I drive taxi for a living and in recent years the cars of choice in our company have been Ford Taurus station wagons. The first one we bought was a '98 with 140K. We paid $750 for it. Right now it is still going with over 400k on it. We also have 4 more of these cars in the fleet and they all run good. We've never payed over $1,000 for any of them. These cars are tough as nails. As cabs they get beaten day in and day out. They always take these beatings without a whimper.
Try that with your '94 Honda.
Another plus about the Taurus' is that they made millions of them and parts are dirt cheap.
Also, if you need to bug out in a hurry you can pile a ton of stuff in one of these wagons. Or, if you have the optional rear seat seat (as many did) you can fit 8 people in the car legally counting the driver.
Drive this car sensibly and the 3.0 liter v6 isn't all that hard on gas either.

"Normal" is a word that doesn't apply here.

Car / truck prices are relative to overall condition, miles on them and year of the vehicle....they are then priced / haggled on over based on those main points.

Normal means nothing.

Find out when the timing belt was last replaced. If Owner cant prove when it was replaced then you'll probably need to replace it soon.

Timing belt replacement cost $350-$900 depending on what else needs to be replaced.

The upgraded radio makes me think the car was owned by a young adult. Young adults tend to be stupid with cars and you never know what your getting in to.

Never drove one but heard they are pos.


Any GM product with a 3.8 L V6 engine is a good bet.

These include

--Olds Toronados
--Buick Regals and LaSabres
--Pontiac Bonneville
--Buick Riviera

Most of these are well built vehicles and were expensive when new.

I bought a 1991 Toronado Trofeo with 67,000 miles on it in mint condition five years ago for $2k. I drove it for another 60k miles and sold it for 1200. The seats got ripped up, the hidden headlights didn't work, and the headliner started falling, but it ran like a champ.

Look for the cars that cost the most new, are old with low miles for the year, garage kept, well maintained...generally, these are the cars that rich people buy and don't drive very much. Stick with domestics because they are easier to fix and parts are less expensive than foreign cars.


Having said that, however, I've heard from a mechanic that Saturns are very easy to work on, older models have plastic door panels, they get good gas milage, and used ones are cheap.

Man some ppl on here are retarded... escort, tarus, relient, you ppl must hate OP. It's like a car wedgee for a nerd. Cut it out already.

I drive a '94 EX Accord, it has a little over 300k MILES on it and if the motor or trans died tomorrow I would go on the search for another just like it. In Texas we don't have a big rust issue here. I roll the thing hard and put it up wet on a regular basis, it just runs. I have spent less than $500 on it in the last 200k miles. Thats parts, not tires, and I do the work my self. I am a jap car mechanic (retired) be I neglect this car bad, I change the oil about every 12k or 15k and throw on belts at about 90k miles.

Honda is THE benchmark of quality....end of story. I have been inside to many.

I think that's expensive for a fifteen year old car. I wouldn't pay that much myself.

I have just one bit of advice: NEVER buy a used car in "cop-catcher" red or a sporty-style unless you are a mechanic...those kinds of cars are often owned buy young fast-driving types who don't bother with maintenance.
