looking for a new whip.

Recommended Posts

i toyed with the idea of buying a new car outright but i want something that i can throw down a 30% down payment on and pay off easily in 48 months so i am going to grab a used car.

i'll be making the purchase in spring 2010. maybe sooner if i find a sick deal.

my limit would be about $12k USD. that's about as big as i can get, so don't suggest $13k. $12k is our limit, probably less, like 10-11k.

i want something fast, cool, and reliable for atleast 4-5 years. i drive about 11,000 miles a year.

If you're going used, Subaru Impreza WRX.

Good luck trying to find one of those used above the year 2000 under 12 grand.

.

So you want something, fast, cool, reliable that's at least 4-5 years old, or that's going to last you 4-5 years?

or maybe something like this?

Help me out here. what do you consider cool?

the one car I can think of that's cool and fast that you can actually get under 12 grand used would be a mitsubishi lancer.

and by cool i mean something that doesn't look like obvious shit. those appeal to me, the ones you linked to.

do you think i should avoid doing what i REALLY want to do which would be getting an old stingray? you can get a late 70s vette with like 50k miles and really decent shape for around $10gs.

It's def doable in USD. They go for like 17k CAD used for a 2006, and start at 30k cad; they only start at 22k USD so i dont think that's that unreasonable

just be careful. Some people use em for racing and you dont want a car thats been run into the ground. At very least check the clutch travel distance but you should obv take any used car to a mech
