Re: Getting a car.... need advice.
Toyota-Honda-Nissan, anything from the late 80's to mid 90's should be within your price range. Do not get Tercel's or V6 camry's for toyota. Honda stay with 4 cylinder engines. Nissan avoid the maxima like the plague, sentra and altima are ok (do not get v6 altima). Pretty much stay with any 4 cylinder Toyota-Honda-Nissan EXCEPT for the Tercel. Celica's (late 80's-90's) I don't like very much, never dealt with those. For some reason I see a lot of them broken down in driveways, don't know what it is bout them

You'll quickly regret straying from those brands (don't go with mitsubishi/mazda/suzuki or any other japanese brand) dealer only parts will kill you (if you can still find them)

GM, Chrysler and Ford are a mixed bag. The 1991-1995 first generation Saturn SL2 seems pretty reliable, a relative of mine had one that I serviced and it ran perfectly until he sold it past 250k. It had a bad PCM/ECU (computer) but once I replaced that it kept going fine. Plentiful supply of parts at junkyards too.

Chrysler, I've only dealt with the Dodge Neon. Fairly good cars, apparently they have mitsubishi engines. Very simple and easy to work on, parts are also cheap. Stick with the 1st gen 1995-1999, look for the DOHC engine and manual transmission. Avoid the 2nd generation.Plentiful supply of parts at junkyards too.

Ford, I've rarely dealt with. I've heard that the late 80's early 90's Ford Escort wasn't so bad (those little hatchbacks) Apparently had mazda engines. If you want something a little nicer you can probably find a cheap Ford Probe, which looks nice and is basically a clone of the Mazda MX-6. Now keep in mind that Mazda parts are harder to find and probably more expensive, and more of the parts will be dealer only than with other brands. Avoid the 80's-90's Ford Taurus like the plague.

Good luck, if you need help I'll gladly respond.

Small Florida town....

I'm doing nothing but working out, and working....

Somehow spend all my money!

Payments sound good, but noone will touch me...
I could handle payments.

Thinking of printing a flyer at retirement home, for old ppl who can't srive and asking if they'll donate or let me make payments. Figure it'd worth a shot.

Jeep Cherokee? One in good condition is difficult to find and probably outside your price range. They aren't cheap to fix up either and will cost $$$ more than a small 4 cylinder car to keep running. I wouldn't recommend it.

Look dude, save THAT^^ shit for when you're old.

For a down payment of next to nothing and NO good credit, you could qualify for a loan for $2,000. I know, because I did when I was 19. I was able to buy a 1988 Toyota Supra TURBO with a targa top. The body had seen better days, but it was not that bad. And let me tell you dude...that car would GO.

The bad side: It was loud, smelled like gas, looked rough, and got 9 MPG (probably something to do with that gas smell...).
BUT, it was well worth the $2,000.

SO...in summary; You could buy a forgettable piece of shit civic or corolla with no soul whatsoever, OR you could buy a car with character that's going to make you smile every time you drive it.

I love those Supras... I remember you used to have one in your avatar... Unfortunately a "forgettable civic or corolla with no soul whatsoever" might be all he can afford and would be the better car for him and his $$$ situation anyways.

If you're broke, you need a basic car that will get you reliably from point A to point B. You can do that fairly cheaply with a corolla or civic, less so with a Mk3 Supra (or anything else for that matter: Fox body mustang, F-body GM cars or any other car of that class/era)

I'd start out with something basic, something that is cheaper to fix and maintain until I could gather the cash for a Mk3 Supra, 5.0 Mustang or whatever you like. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for nice performance cars but don't go crazy in the beginning when you don't even have basic transportation!

I've got my backup car, my daily driver fun car, and my weekend "date" car. I've also got an empty garage where a MK3 Supra will be worked on and restored as a project :)

You called me out...that Supra broke after 18 months. Blew a head gasket.

You're right about springing on desirable cars when you have the funds. If I were able to drop $4,000 instead, I could have gotten a 1 or 2 owner GEM. I know this because I'm looking around for one again. It almost makes me want to puke seeing how that extra money could have made such a big difference.

Btw...you must have a steel trap for a mind. I haven't had that Supra avatar in like a year lol. We have a true car fan on our hands here.

Yeah for $4,000 take your pick! I saw a SWEET Toyota MR-2 Turbo with 120k miles, clean title never riced or wrecked go for $3,500! I seriously thought about getting it but someone bought it while I was working :(

Yes, "my CPU is a neural-net processor, a learning computah" cruise

That KA24 is legendary... its right up there with the 22RE Toyota series. How about the 1.8 liter 7A-FE on the 93-97 Corollas? My ex girlfriend had one with over 380,000 miles! And her car had originally been a salvage title and she stick wrecked it 2 more times including a total loss incident and it just kept running and running... Just do the timing belt (with all the pulleys/tensioners) and water pump and those engines won't quit!

Re: Getting a car.... need advice.
Ah, the good old 7M-GTE known for the stock headgasket which was under torqued from the factory... An aftermarket MLS (multi-layered steel) headgasket from Fel Pro and a box of new headbolts will fix that...

Yeah for $4,000 take your pick! I saw a SWEET Toyota MR-2 Turbo with 120k miles, clean title never riced or wrecked go for $3,500! I seriously thought about getting it but someone bought it while I was working :(

Yes, "my CPU is a neural-net processor, a learning computah" cruise

That KA24 is legendary... its right up there with the 22RE Toyota series. How about the 1.8 liter 7A-FE on the 93-97 Corollas? My ex girlfriend had one with over 380,000 miles! And her car had originally been a salvage title and she stick wrecked it 2 more times including a total loss incident and it just kept running and running... Just do the timing belt (with all the pulleys/tensioners) and water pump and those engines won't quit!

Cheers cheers

Re: Getting a car.... need advice.
keep the miles off of it. dealers are charging $100 an hour to work on them. I just paid, including tax $435 to have an air bag sensor replaced on my suv. and I had a 15% off coupon. Its probably easy to swap it out but u need the expensive diagnostic equipment to tell u which sensor is bad.....
