Default Re: New, used car

I'm looking for anything. I just need something to drive. I mean i'm not going for some beater, i'm going to be driving a nice whip, common or not. I can't afford much now, for unique, so i'm not holding my breath for anything.

There just werent any cars on craigslist.com that I like more then the SUV's.

Hmm, ill have to do a bit of research on those Silvias and MR2's.

well in that case, maybe you are better off just getting something that is a little more common. I mean buying something like an imported Nissan or Toyota is probably not worth it in your case. They are already more expensive than a better condition, although more common, car and have the downside of expensive repairs to go along with it.

Out of those, the Prelude would probably be the most fun to drive. That generation of the Dodge Ram is my favorite looking truck compared to all other full-size trucks. Diesels get pretty good gas mileage for their size, and are pretty reliable too. If you want luxury, go with the Acura. The Maxima isn't bad either.

I'm loving the Prelude and the Maxima. I'm not holding my breath of the Acura as its more $$$ then we want to spend, and the truck isnt even a possibility. Its tight, but not in any way practical.

IMO you have to stay practical, but keep it fun.
Stay away from the SUV's/Trucks ect. These are not practical and the gas mileage will get very expensive. Too big and bulky too.

You don't need to buy something unique, you need to buy something you can make unique yourself.

Stay away from German vehicles, (accept maybe newer VW Golf, Rabbit, Jetta ect) unless you got the big $$$ to fix them, and pay exorbitant prices in customizing them, they are not practical.

You gotta think to the future here a little bit too, can't just think in the now. You gotta think well if I am not living at home in the next couple of years because I want to get out of that small ass town you are in, you will prob be thinking about living in the Seattle/Eastside area. Just something practical in case you are doing a lot of driving, something thats good on gas mileage ect and a quality vehicle.

I say stay with a Honda (Acura) Toyota or Nissan. These are are readily available to find used, they are quality car makers, they are relatively cheap to fix (vs that monstrosity that was the Mercedes) and they will get good gas mileage. Plus aftermarket parts are very easy to get for these type of cars.


http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/285260563.html

Good car but it has a VTEC and high mileage. The VTEC is a very sought after engine in the tuner world, it might be a high theft car. Plus the asking price is high because it is a VTEC.

http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/285589686.html

IMO I like these cars. It doesn't say if its a Corolla S or not. The Corolla S have factory spoiler and body kit. I like these and the price is in your area somewhat.

http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/280862078.html
NO

http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/277009496.html

Dream on, thats almost double what you want to pay, I am sure Dad will budge on the price a little bit, but not that much.


http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/271516842.html
YES YES YES now you are talking.

http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/car/272034416.html
WAYYYY too many miles, you can do better


How about

http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/car/295206112.html

Thats a Spec V limited edition, it has a 5 speed manual, custom wheels and spoiler. Good gas mileage and are great cars for customizing.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/est/car/295430688.html
Corolla S but a little pricey

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/car/295647175.html
Nice Acura but the miles are high.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/car/292830659.html
This is an interesting car, it has a rebuilt title, that means in was previously stolen, which isn't bad, its been keyed, that sucks but can be fixed, and the engine light is on, thats easy to fix.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/car/295678058.html
This could work too

Any well-take care of car should easily be able to go to 200,000 miles without major problems.

If you can afford it, go with the Spec-V. I heard they are a blast to drive. You can get them with a 6 speed too.

All great cars my man, great cars. Not fond of the Acura though. I really like that Civic or the Sentra.

Too bad the are both sticks. I could easily deal though, haha. Damn, I love that SI right now. AH!!!
