Help With Choosing My First Car Nov. 22nd, 2008 @ 12:22 AM Reply

Well first of all I'm serious about this because I will be getting my permit soon and a year or so after that, well, my first car and I don't want someone telling me to get a Bugatti Veyron or something because there is literally no way in hell but anyway... I just kind of recently researching different cars and the one I want is an '08 Volvo S60R but I don't really know what style to go for or what other cars are out there are that look great and has great performance and something girls would be jealous of so there for I need help with different ideas and cars.

I'm sure someone out there will give me the perfect car that I'm after. But please take everything in to consideration from price to gas mileage. I was thinking maybe nothing above a total price of $40,000.

So here's some links to maybe help people who are willing to help me out and get them on the right track to what I'm looking for...

Start out with a 90's japanese car like a honda.
Cheap and good mileage. Then later on you can get a nicer car later on!

And are you wealthy or something? $40,000....

Look for a cheap used Honda, Nissan, or Toyota then go from there.

Now I'm sure youre pulling our legs. I cant think of any reason a 15 year old could actually afford such cars around 40,000 NEW, so find a used car around 1000-4000 dollars.

So what's the situation? Are your parents buying the car for you? They're going to pay your insurance, your gas, routine maintenance, etc.?

If they're rich, then great.

If not, you're going to be very surprised at all the hidden costs that go into a brand new car.

I have a corsa as my first car. Its quite the typical first car, but its so cute. Just go for a simple small car as your first one.

40,000....yen? pesos?

Anyways, even if you do get 40 grand, get a used one as your first car, since you'll probably get your first accident in that one (not including the ones during your practices).

Dude, you're 15 years old. You don't need a $40,000 car. Do yourself a favor and get a good used car. Like a Chevy Prizim or a Toyota Corolla. They' would run you about $9,000-$12,000. Put the rest of your money away for emergencies.
