    Looking for dependability through school., low maintenance cost, how many miles should the car have?

    Please no
    " it's gotta have da hemi"
    "I only drive a Beamer"


    Any ideas?

    And I'm not looking to use the money as a down payment to finance the rest, I'm looking to buy the car outright

    I've been finding 01-04 Corvettes for 9-15k
    It's not 7-8 but thats what im gunning for next.

    what kind of vehicle do you want?

    sports coupe.

    sedan

    suv

    etc.

    cheap maintenence?

    japanese?

    american?

    older

    newest possible?

    Cant go wrong with the 90s hondas

    find one with lowest mileage and youll still have 4 k left over

    and it'll be cheap on gas and maintence

    Def newest possible with the most reliability, low cost maintenance . Smaller cylinder engine for good gas mileage would be cool as well.. I could do $9k for the 2001 Vette though..

    Will kill the young boy on premium gas. Maybe a tsx. Really cop an early 2000s Accord and have of that cash left over to pocket. Pay attention to the history and condition more so than mileage on those.

    A 20 year old car for under 10k doesn't sound good at all.....
