    Question What should be my first car?

    Im going to get my first car, fairly soon, and i cant quite decide what i want to get. For some reason, i really want to get a ford ranger, but i do not want to make up my choice this soon. I will be able to spend $5,000, maybe a little bit more. I don't really care what kinda of vehice it is.

    So can i get some opinions on the ford ranger (2000), or other good vehicles to get for $5,000 or less?

    What are your criteria? Truck, car? Gas mileage, horsepower? Foreign, domestic? Reliability, maintenance? Servicing expense, parts availability? Old, older, or needs restoring?

    This guy is a friend of mine, he's been bugging me to help him out... His parents want him to have something fairly new, with less than 100k miles. Make/model no preference, but he wants a pickup.
    I have bad luck with vehicles...

    For a little over 4k you could get a nice 96-98 land cruiser.

    Mazda MX-5? That would be a great first car, it would make you enjoy driving everyday. Lots of aftermaket for it too.

    Do you really NEED a truck?

    98+ Ranger would be a fine choice, same platform as my Explorer which I love to death, best car I ever owned. Gets way better gas mileage than imports too, with more power and larger interior.
    {Xenarc 700TSV} {Celeron M 1.3 ghz} {ASUS mATX mobo w/CT479} {MX440 128mb AGP} {1x512mb RAM} {3.5" Seagate 40gb (rated at 350 G's)} {M1-ATX}
