Yea okay. Have fun paying for 12 miles a gallon and when you wreck end up being paralyzed due to shitty 70's engineering.

This kid can probably get a lot of action with a 300$ toyota pick up.

Like I said dude, I'm 22 and totaled about 5 cars before I was 21.
I don't know what your life style is like, but I'm glad I never wasted big $ on a car that early in life.

I guess I don't listen to my own advice though, picked up a 2012 ultima and already got into a fender bender.

Try buying one of the used rental cars from places like Enterprise. Good deal and they have been well maintained.

As for car, have had really good luck with Nissan. Last one lasted for 13 years and the one before that was 10 years old when it was totaled in an accident.

Volkswagon is also good and good on gas.

You might even for look for a used Prius so you can drive on the cheap.

Any Dodge, Chrysler or Plymouth would be a good choice.

A Ford would be a good 2nd choice.

I would stay away from any GM product. I've had 2 of them & they were the worst vehicles I've ever had.

Avoid 2003 Hondas like the plague unless you like replacing transmissions.

Also realize that you will get a much better deal if you avoid dealers and buy privately. Toyotas are good, but there are other good cars as well, check the inter webs. Good luck!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28647427


For some informational purposes on purchasing new/used Trucks and Cars from car dealers.
If your looking to buy a new or used car/truck start at the wholesale price as your bargaining base.
Wholesale price is Retail (MSRP) x 70%
example:
$41,000 x 70% = $28,700.00 would be your first offer on that new car or truck.
You must take the emotion out of buying a vehicle. "Show none"
If you are buying used you can apply the same formula but deduct .30 to .42 cents for each mile on the odometer. .30 for quality highway miles up to .42 for someone that took that Yugo 4 wheelin. Find the retail price (MSRP) for that car/truck in that year (on the internet) and apply the math above. This includes any private sales as well i.e. Craigslist, ebay or Cartrader. Anywhere !
example:
Say a 2009 Ford explorer had a retail (MSRP) of $29,000 in that year and it has 40,000 miles on it.
So $29,000 x 70% = $20,300 wholesale then deduct .30 cents per mile (good miles) 40,000 x .30 = ($12,000)
So your starting bid/offer for that truck or car would be $8,300.00
I have purchased many vehicles (40+) through these years using this formula for business, family and friends and I know it works. The problem is that people make a car or truck purchase an emotional event. (crying about int/ext color and such) Don't. If the salesman says "your nuts (after you have arrived at "YOUR" price) and that’s above my costs" just leave him your name and number, on a piece of paper or card you supply from your pocket, written with your pen or pencil) and tell him "if you want to sell that car or truck call me". That’s it and leave the showroom.
Remember the above math is to establish a basis or base to start the bargaining, move up from there.
good luck !
Walk in like you own the place.

Some will say so that car is free...............No - use your brain to improve your performance in the showroom !
