so, what's a good first car?

open to any suggestions, used or new cars, judging performance and looks.

i would probably say a japanese car based on reliability, like a toyota or honda. something you don't really have to worry about maintenance with

Just make sure to get RWD. Depending on budget its up in the air.

^ now why's that? fuck yeah rwd is fun to drive, but it also depends on where he's at. i saw a 350z crash on the highway when it was snowing. i almost shedded an indian teardrop.

VW golf or gti. vw has a good community with great aftermarket support and as long as you stay away from the 1.8t, they're good cars

you are going to have to be more specific on a type of car and how much you're spending.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo = GooD! PLUS under $20k?
February 06, 2009 @ 19:27:34
yeah, my limit is about 25k, my friends at school also told me get a civic si. lol. what do you guys think about infiniti g35?
February 07, 2009 @ 12:48:31
If your budget is 25k and you buy a civic si, I'll slap you through the computer.
February 07, 2009 @ 20:19:25
lol why?, i was thinking of getting a used infiniti g35 coupe
February 07, 2009 @ 21:23:55
civics are just civics..their hella blah. everybody drives civics and they always think that they are the fastest cars on the road..fuckin honda owners.

if you have the opportunity to buy a g35, do it.

What's your age and what kind of job do you have, like what's your annual income? Just as big a concern as the car's price tag is if you are going to be able to pay for insurance and parts (Imports and Euro's especially are prolly gonna have high insurance and part prices); plus reliability is a major issue. If you're spending $25k on your first car then I'm guessing you have a pretty ill job or maybe you're just a trust fund baby lol.

-For example, I saved up for an Integra all through 9th, 10th, and 11th grade in high school, got a nice '95 SE for 5k but the insurance was fucking killer considering I was working at a restaurant making fairly shit wage so it was a bit of a bitch to have that much of your income go towards insurance and parts

Get a used towncar. Most of em are in good condition, and you can find 'em in your budget too.

yea plz dont get a civic lol, everyone has one..if you ask ten random people if they know someone with a civic the answer will be yes lol, but on the si note, if u want something similar, you can get a rsx type s, i have a vbp 06, its nice, got mine for $15k, and looks better than any $20k plus civic si.

exactly, my family alone has 2 civics, and not counting my cousins. hmm, that rsx is mighty fine.

February 25, 2009 @ 23:34:48
if you are on budget, i would go with a honda or scion..

February 26, 2009 @ 22:42:46
Nissan 300zx ftw
February 26, 2009 @ 23:04:38
infiniti G20 99-02..Great on Gas, great value (under 6K), and great car basically a Rebadged Nissan with an SR20 but with leather interior, a sunroof, and a bose stereo system..I love my carr

i got mine fully loaded out the door for 19K
comes with sun and sound

basically an evo without the recaros, AWD, and turbo smh
but i love it and id recomend it to anyone looking to buy a first car
