• What type of car should I buy?

    Best answer: You mean make, you have the type scoped out as a hatchback. You will probably find a used manual , about ten years old, that will fit your 'specs.

    I prefer 5 doors, but a 3 door Mazda 323 or Protégé will be good. 38 MPG and last forever. NOT a sports car at all. Or Honda Civic, or Toyota .An old Tercel RWD is reliable, 30 on the hiway, and very easy to maintain. What good is 40 MPG if you need to pay thousands on new CV joints, needs constant alignment, etc? Better to get a car that is easier to (cheaper) work on and gets 30.
    $3,000 is reasonable. for a private sale. That is about my budget, I am 55+. I am going back to college, my commute is 30 miles.. So, I wont jump to conclusions, you have your own reasons that I am sure are very good to you for your wants.

    I saw a Mazda sedan, auto, 60K, broken radiator, for $600. The lady was afraid to drive after her accident. Whatever you decide, get a mechanic to check it out. first, it is a good investment. I see a Chevette 5 door HB for $400, they were RWD with Isuzu engines , got 30 on hiway and lasted 300,000 miles.

  • Buying a car? Help!!?

    Best answer: You don't want a car that old unless it has really decent miles. Cars from the 90s to 2000s aren't as reliable or study as today's cars. Most cars built today can go 100,000 miles without any major problems. My CRV could probably have gone 200000 miles without a problem. It was over 100000 miles before... show more
    Best answer: You don't want a car that old unless it has really decent miles. Cars from the 90s to 2000s aren't as reliable or study as today's cars. Most cars built today can go 100,000 miles without any major problems. My CRV could probably have gone 200000 miles without a problem. It was over 100000 miles before it needs a $1200 job to fix a crack in the engine.

    Buying is better because you don't have to follow rules. If you lease a car, you can only drive x miles per year. If you go over at the end of the lease, you'll be charged anywhere from 5¢ to 25¢ for every mile that you're over.

    Plus if you're going to put that much into the car wouldn't it be better to just buy the car than to receive nothing for all that money.

  • The cost of shipping a used SUV from South Africa to the United states?

    Best answer: The USA is a very large country so it depends on WHERE in the USA you want to ship it. It also depends on whether you want it containerized or "deck loaded", and of course any taxes or import duty will depend on the vehicle.

    Best answer: The USA is a very large country so it depends on WHERE in the USA you want to ship it. It also depends on whether you want it containerized or "deck loaded", and of course any taxes or import duty will depend on the vehicle. A logical and intelligent person would contact several international shipping agents to determine average cost. In addition you need to be sure it is a vehicle that can be registered and licensed in the USA. Some vehicles from other countries cannot be licensed here, especially in California.

  • A car dealership ripped me off! HELP!!?

    Best answer: Don't worry about it. There is nothing you can do about it at this point. Car dealers/salesman are not your friends. Their objective is to make as much as possible off you. They call it "salesmanship". I'm surprised you could even lease with a 600 cosigner. Don't miss a payment or be late... show more

    I'm surprised you could even lease with a 600 cosigner.

    Don't miss a payment or be late and you should probably buy it at lease end and keep it another 5-10 years.

    #1 tip for building wealth. Stay out of car dealerships. Never lease. Never buy new.

    I have had superior credit for the last 25+ years. I financed ONE car in my life, a $6500 used car at age 21. Paid it off in 19 months and haven't had car debt since.

    Drove cars worth under $3000 for 25+ years. Until recently, paid cash for a $9000 car. I'm a millionaire now and can afford not having to worry about a cheap car.
