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.
 Quoting: anonanon 4148733


yeah ok

7500

gas at 3 bucks

so about twice the mileage of average shitboxers

so he will need to drive his used prius 250,000 miles before he breaks even and starts saving money. LOL

find a ford f 100 straight six buy that and spend the left over money on guns food and silver , gas won't be around much longer for the peons anyways.

Get one from a dealership if you got 7500 youll get a nice car but you will pay a bit too much but it will be in good shape .

Buy an older model Jeep Cherokee 1993-2001. 2wd if you're basically doing highway and city miles or 4x4 for offroad. Tuned up and running right they get about 18-20 mpg. The 6 cylinder engine is practically bulletproof if it's maintained.

3 words for you. Toyota, Honda, Nissan...

If you are set on a car and not a truck, you can get a very reliable Camry or Corolla that will run forever if you take care of it and it has no major problems to begin with.

Or you can get a Civic or an Accord that will also run forever.

Want something fast and reliable? Look at 2002 and older Nissan Maximas...you will be surprised at the performance.


But I suggest a truck. It provides transportation and can be used as a work vehicle. In which case I recommend a Toyota Tacoma or a Nissan Frontier. Great reliability. The Toyota will be more expensive because it is rock solid.

By the way, buy private party and pay a mechanic $50 to $100 to do a thorough check of the vehicles condition.

If you buy from a dealer, you are just paying extra for everyone involved in the transaction to make money. Waste of money.

It is going to take some time to find a diamond in the rough.

My last used car took me about 7 months to find. And it was awesome.

The above used to be true when Japanese autos were really made in Japan. With manufaturing taking place elsewhere, quality has suffered. Most Fords are as good or better than an American Camry.

He will be buying USED. So my post is 100% spot on...

And even by todays levels of quality and reliability, American brand vehicles are still behind the Japanese. Just because Ford has caught up a bit, doesn't mean they have surpassed the Japanese quality.

For reliability you still cannot beat Toyota/Lexus.

Buy a small 4 cyl pickup. Equip it with extra deep cycle marine batteries and both a small solar cell (+/-) 300watt trickle charger. Combine that with a 800 watt AC power inverter and a propane heat soarce. These can be installed in a high profile camper top. throw in a nice memory foam mattress, a cooler, camp stove, SW radio,.308 cal rifle, fishing rig, a few tools and a plan. You are now ready for what may come your way. Remember also, the more you have in your head , the less you will need to take along. ;)shark

Get a 92-95 2 Door Honda Civic hatchback that has less than 200,000 miles on it that's in good running order and has been well looked after (for example, had it's oil changed every 3,000 miles). Buy private, not from a dealer. You should be able to buy one of these cars for less than half what you have. Save $1,000 to $2,000 for repairs and maintenance after you buy it. After that you should be good to go for several years only paying for gas and oil changes every 3,000 miles. These cars get 40+ mpg and you will save a LOT of money on gas compared to owning any other car. These little cars are also sporty and fun to drive. With all the money you'll save owning this car for 3-5 years, you'll save enough money to buy the car of your dreams (within reason) for your next car.

Don't buy an old American car, because it will cost you more in repairs than owning an old Japanese car. Subarus and Mercedes are not worth their higher selling price, and also are a lot more costly to repair (which will be practically guaranteed on any used car) than Honda or Toyota.

Quick! Everybody rush to the 17 year old and give him "fatherly advice" that you've completely pulled out of your ass in an effort to make yourself appear older and experienced in any kind of way whatsoever.

(Insert "Overly-Manly Man" Here)

Fags. And Fakes.

Or better yet! Everybody rush to tell the 17 year old that he should get the same car YOU drive/drove/was your 1st car because yours is, of course, THE best.

OP, Fuck you too for seeking approval and advice from people your parents age. Go ask your Mom.

You're not going to walk away with whatever you've dreamed up in your mind. Get something about 10 yrs old and buy a Hayne's manual for it. The end.

Re: I'm a 17 year old guy looking for a car. Any advice?
Spend no more than 4000 or 5000 on it...

do not spend your maximum amount on a used car...

Go to a dealer that is well known...

Do not by a sports car or a red or black car...

BUY a 4 DOOR can not stress that enough...

cause 2 doors look kool but cost more and your friends getting in and out will not be a pain in the ass..

the money you don;t spend you can use to make repairs when they come up and they will come up...

take it to a mechanic you know ask them too look it over...


Remember this... it is your first car you will bump it you will scratch it your friends don;t give a rats ass about it.

GAS cost money 4 cylinders cost way way way less than a 8 or a 6...

Insurance plays in to all of those as well...

a car is for getting to and from places that is all...


Your first car is a bumper car... it is the 2nd car you get that you love and wipe dry with a diaper...


Cheers man good luck eh...

Don;t drink and drive do not toke or smoke and drive...

stay insured and remember... Bad drivers are not assholes... they are just that a bad drive... due to nerves, poor skill, or tired...

Careless drivers are another category all on its own..


Cheers eh
