Got guy down to 3500, could probably get him lower. Good idea, or future headache in repairs?
Could very well be a future headache. Find something bone stock owned by a grandma.

So is there any other non obvious choice for my needs besides the prizm for under $4.5k? Just wondering if there is something ok that I'm not aware of.


Considering diesels, maybe something like this? Not sure if it's auto or manual though, will ask.

Those things are tanks. But I'd still go with the prizm.

Anyone know how reliable 04 grand am's are? Was thinking of going after this one, but a little worried about the 140k miles.

Holy *** looking for used cars on craigslist sucks when 90% of the listing are from mexicans who can't write in English to save their life.

Do you drive in the snow or inclement conditions? If so, WRX.
Are you prepared to face some electrical issues eventually? If so, GTI.
Do you want a more stylish interior? If so, GTI.
Do you want to be able to have a semi-monstrous car with some software flashes and somewhat minimal parts upgrading? If so, GTI.

I loved my Subaru, so I'd say WRX.

I would say the WRX. Reliable and relatively quick, plus I loved mine.

Soo the engine in my truck blew, and i just got a new job so i have to have a car by next monday. I have $400 for a down payment and can probably afford $300 a month payments. Im looking for something capable of driving in the snow on mountain roads. Something reliable, hopefully newer model with decent mpg.

im probably going to be buying from a dealership cause ive just had ****ty luck with private sales.

I was looking at things like the Rav4, FJ Cruiser, Jeeps, etc...

What would you guys recommend?

I think all the option you listed are viable. But put of those I would go with the rav4, will most likely be the cheapest, and will definitely be the best on gas. CRV is also a good option.

You only have $400 saved up that you can put towards a car?


I'd try to carpool or something for a bit.


EDIT: Saw your living on your own thread. Yeah, don't do that for a while.

Why do you need a truck ? A fwd with snows or a impreza should suite yiur needs unless your in the Rockies for cheaper too

Never measured really but my last truck was a stock 91 s10. it probably had about 12" of clearance and did fine.
