    Car?

    Im going to save up and buy a car after the summer when I have about 5 thousand. What kind of car should I get?

    Features I'd like (not required, but nice to have):
    AWD
    V6 +
    Power windows, seats, locks, etc
    4 seats
    Drivers side airbag (at least)

    Condition:
    Id like to have a car with a good body condition (no dents, decent paint)

    Cars I know I don't want:
    Ford
    Chevy
    GM
    Hyundai
    There's more, but I can't think of anything else

    Since my budget is really low (I'm a teen), I know I can't get the best (wish I had an escalade)...but I've thought about these two cars...

    Nissan 200sx (1995-1998):
    2 wheel drive
    V4
    4 seats
    Power everything
    Airbags
    Decent paint and all
    Probably about 50000-100000 miles
    around 4 - 5 G around where I live

    Subaru SVX (1992):
    AWD
    V6
    4 seats
    Airbags
    same milage
    Decent paint and all
    Probably about 4 G

    I love Nissan because I have a nissan pickup, but I hear good things about subarus as well, and the SVX seems to have all that I need, and still be in my budget. I still have quite a while to think this over (lol, like 6 months), but any suggestions on these vehicles? Anyone have or had one of these cars? Pros and cons? Oh, and to keep it on topic, I'm going to put the system from my truck to my new (used) car. The reason why I want a car is for the room, passenger room, fuel efficiency, and of course for us teens, looks. Plus my truck is used for work and it get the **** beat out of it. I just want to have a leisure car for myself and the friends. Anyway, sorry for the long thread, thanks!

    if you search hard enough, you might be lucky to find yourself an early grey-import mitsu evo series... the earliest ones still had more than 250bhp on tap, 4 wheel drive...

    i dont' think u can get a decent v6 awd with all those features for 5g.

    but, from those, the newer subarus are really good. i don't know bout the year you want. just test drive them n see which car is better. i'll prob go with the subaru cuz i think it's 4 door. i just like 4 doors, more space for everything, even in the trunk =)

    I really like the SVX, I would have considered one if it only came with a manual trans. A friend of mine bought an Impreza (95 or 96) with AWD and everything you listed but the v6. Didn't seem like anything special. You could also consider a 240sx (RWD!). I was in the same boat as you are and I'm getting a Probe GT within the next couple days, its a very nice car for the price. But since you ruled out Ford so fast... try a Mazda MX6 LS (exact same car as the probe, different body). Has V6, power everything, 4 seats (small rears), etc.

    haha, jk. but keep in mind if you get a car like a red 240 sx, that insurance is going to be a hell of a lot more than a gray ford contour. so in deciding on a car, keep in mind the type in terms of insurance rates....



    when in doubt, check the ground.

    If insurance is a concern, go with a doge neon, they are some of the cheapest cars for insurance. btw the color doesn't matter to an insurance company, maybe the police but not your insurance.

    i guess insurance companies changed their policies...oh well
    andways...it seems as though he wants a bit of power and features in the car. i would not go with a neon unless you wanted to pour another 1k into it to get it to even perform near a 200sx...or 3k like an svx. personally, i dont like neons.

    if you're patient you can find a good deal on a better car.

    thanks a lot for the help guys. Yeah, i do kind of want some decent performance and features, and i know I have a low budget, but the subaru svx does look like basically what i want (manual transmission is cool and all, but sometimes its better to use automatic).

    well, it wont be like 5-7 months till i get the cash...so ill just wait and see what happens...

    thankee
