  • What Car do you reccomend?

    I'm going to sell my Caravan sooner or later, just wanted your oppinion, on what cind of car i should buy. I'd need something in a sedan size but at least the size of a Passat, or say a 5 BMW. you get the idea. Preferably european, but i also might consider japanese and such. I'd not like to have az American car unless it's reliable, w/o problems. My budget is about $4000-$5000 depending on how i sell my car, and what i can set aside for this matter. Also I need suggestions weather the car would bare the carpc in it, or not, because my current problem is that... (here)

    You could probably get a Lexus for that much. I got my 95' Lexus SC300 for $7200 with tax ($6400 w/o tax).

      I have a 95 cadillac eldorado I really enjoy, or the 4 door version sts, Probably could find some nice ones in about that range. Or my work car a 99 crown vic police interceptor, You can get ex cop/sheriff cars cheap at government auctions.

        I was looking at some Crown Victorias with the police pakage, but the problem with FORD is, that i used to have two tauruses and with both of them i had tromendous ammount of trouble. I hted always repairing them, so i burried Ford for now. What do you all think?

          I think Ford's reliability speaks for itself. Heh...

          Hondas are reliable, fuel-efficient, and cheap. The only negative things about them are how they're extremely common and "riced out". I'm not too familiar with european cars though, especially in that price range. Jettas are pretty cool, but I hear the older models were lemons. *shrug*

              The Civics and Accords are good. My friend's Civic had 270,000 miles on it before it started having problems. My Civic has 246,000 right now and it runs fine.

                  You can get a salvaged car. A "Theft Recovery" salvage means that the insurance company payed off the owner before the car was found and were forced to auction the car off at reduced prices. Or as I said, you can get a used Lexus

                      I would never reccomend a taurus, escort or a tempo. Bad bad bad ford cars. But I have always had really good luck with the Fords that I have owned, putting at least 150,000 miles on each one and most of them over 200,000. But I also do what you are supposed to do and change the fluids, rotate the tires, pay attention when the brakes start making noise, don't race to every stop light, etc etc. But then again, I am pretty much a truck guy.

                        You won't get it clean. Ever. But that is the reason you will get it cheaper. Don't get a "rebuildable" or a "flood damage one". Flood damage will usually have rust and loads of problems, and rebuildable are what it says, you have to rebuild them after the accident.

                          well i was pretty much satisfied with my dodge (to the point where it craped me with this install) Alwys used synthetic oils, and KN filters (air & oil) and always treated it right (in my oppinion) but got so mad at it for his battery/alternator thing, that decided to sell it, and also. since someone hit my side, now it's not worth half than it was before...

                          talk about unluck. Eh
