Wow, I will buy a car soon, finally!.. well, atleast put a down payment on one. But I know nothing about cars! I mean, well, i am not clueless. But I only know about luxury vehicles, the kinds I can't afford. LOL! But I dont know anything about *buying* a car, like all that stuff about miles the car has on it... wth? And I dunno what are the best cars for the 18-25 age group I guess, in terms of price, safety, and best of all, style. So can anyone advise me?

You should buy a Holden Commofore - No 1 in Australia :)

Are you buying a BRAND new car, or close to it?

hmmmm, I'd recommend a Honda Civic, or Accord...You seem like a Honda girl..They last a LONG time and have really good warranty programs...

I would not reccomened something like a Kia or a Hyundai however...Hyundai's break down easily, and Kia's are safety hazards..

DO NOT buy this if you want urban style--
but if you want it to last a long time, get a Ford F-150...
but I can't picture you in one, sorry... :haha:

omigod, are you kidding me, i would love a truck or a jeep. But please elaborate people.... if ya got pictures, or know anything about the mileage and can explain it to me, and if ya know anything about the general pricings :D :D And Mrs. Guga can so drive a truck. OKAY!

SVSK, my mommy drives an accord, so that's what i always drive. Her car. What about a Volkswagon Jetta or Golf? Are they in the same price range as a Civic? I guess the Passat wouldnt be, but I think it's the cutest. Hah, I said cute.

And yeah, I am smart enough to know that Kia sucks balls

1. Do not buy a new car.
2. Find a used car that you can pay off quickly, within a year. Get it checked out by a mechanic before you buy, and negotiate any repairs it needs from the asking price.
3. Check Consumer Reports for reliable models/years. Then pick the one or two that fit what you are looking for. Sign up for CR online... it's only a few bucks and worth it and more for such a large purchase. The site will also have a lot of advice on buying.

Never sign a loan for more than 48 months. Anything more than that and the interest will kill you.

They are very good cars from what I've known but they are more pricey than a honda...

Hi :hug:

Honestly I have a Toyota Camry. 1991 model. It is in very good condition and I got it at a great price. It does the job......for now. My cousin has a Holden Monaro and I really, really want one but I won't rush into anything. If something good comes up then I will look at it.

I wouldn't buy anything new for a first car. I would look around for a good deal.

That is just my opinion. :p

Don't buy a new car. Unless you've got money to burn, a used car is the way to go. If you're young, middle class, and just starting out in life, a used Honda is a great option. They're great cars.

For the sake of our planet, buy a hybrid car if you can afford it. Else buy a low consumption/low emission car (Toyotas and Hondas are great). Sure, the big trucks and jeeps and ranger rovers and hummers are all big and sexy and you feel like you're the king/queen of the road, but they're expensive, they consume and pollute like crazy, and frankly, I'm sure you don't need a range rover for your daily commute.

Good choice.. However buying a VW with an automatic transmission is a bit of a nonsense .. and I am not sure if you would want their wonderful manual transmission.. Also consider Toyota Corolla - I think the classiest and the most refined car in this class..

You only live once, hon. Get a new Cadillac. There is no substitute. They are not obscenely priced, either. Like you can get some nice wheels for like $50K.

Catch this, dear, one of the fags I'm usually stuck with just bought his partner a $92K BMW. Yes, the 7-Series is that expensive. I think that's just ostentatious, but everyone deserves a medium-priced Cadillac in my opinion. Plus, GM needs the business!

Whatever you do don't get a Honda Accord....If I see one more white Accord on the road I'm going to scream. :shout: Plus they are so low to the ground.

Get a Grand Prix - those motors last...my sister has one and it's over 200,000 she uses it for her job ( a rural mail carrier) and she's replaced the transmission once but she stops and starts constantly...good car plus it's American and it won't cost you a arm and a leg to fix it as most foreign cars do.

If you get a used American car, only get a V6 or V8.

The Ford Focus got the best rating in Consumer reports last year so buy a year old Ford Focus..you'll get a great price.

Don't even think about buying a car until the new consumer report auto issue (April '06) comes out which will be in March. Btw, Jetta's have terrible reliability ratings.

I'm a VW guy, currently on Passat #2, and my experience is if you're going to buy a VW, check the sticker to see where it was assembled. The VW's I've had that came from der Vaterland have been of excellent quality, comparable to the Toyotas and Hondas I've owned and a great deal more rewarding to drive. The VW I had that came from a country that shall remain nameless but wasn't Germany was a piece of crap.

I don't know how well this applies generally, but that's been my experience after owning 4 VWs, one Honda, one Toyota and, for a couple of horrifying years, a Dodge.

If you can't find a German-made VW, Hondas are good. IMHO Toyotas are scientifically designed to remove every possible trace of enjoyment from operating an automobile. They're so sterile you could perform brain surgery in one.

Surely, you don't mean the country that builds Jettas? :lol: The quality of Mexican built was indeed very notorious in late 90s, but has ( reportedly ) remarkably improved in last year. These days they built quite good machinery. I test-drove and I would have bought one recently, but AWD version was not available yet.. And I wanted AWD. And Passat with AWD was not available with manual trnasmission. So I went for the closest relative of it instead..:)

IMHO Toyotas are scientifically designed to remove every possible trace of enjoyment from operating an automobile. They're so sterile you could perform brain surgery in one.

You didn't drive the right Toyota, I think. I drove Corolla with 1.8l engine and manual transmission ( that's a key ) for many years, and that's the best car I've ever driven - value-for-money wise.. Very lively playful pocket-rocket, extraordinarily maneuvarable, very steady, reliable, and you can get more than 450 miles out of its 13 gallon tank on 80 mph. You know, its excellent - driving from NYC to Montreal without refuel.. I drove tens of thousands of miles on it in snowstorms.. That was fun.. I tried though the same car with automatic transmission and it indeed drives like shit, engine is too weak for automatic, it takes off slower than Lindsay Davenport chasing the ball.. And don't even get me started on Camrys, which I really don't like - I always felt of them as of couch on the weels. But the right Corolla is great. I though don't like 2005/2006 version at all.. It looks and sits too high..

Jetta's ( VW's ) manual tranmission is legendary, while their automatic transmission does not have the greatest of reputations, besides, it takes too much power off the engine..

And I dunno what are the best cars for the 18-25 age group I guess, in terms of price, safety, and best of all, style. So can anyone advise me?

Depends, really. There are plenty of great second-hand cars around the market these days. And personally, I'd avoid a private sale. They tend to have shaky service records, at best. A friend of mine got a really good Ford Falcon (2000 model), which has obviously been cleaned, checked and tested inside out by the second-hand dealership he got it from. And it 'only' cost him around AU$14,000, which is a pretty good sum considering he's only doing part-time at the moment.

But if a first-hand car is what you want, and you reckon you've got enough for one, then by all means avoid those nasty Euro models. VW is the worst when it comes to broken promises. 'German' doesn't mean reliability or high quality any longer. Really, most of what you pay for their high prices come from the image that comes with the badge. My brother had a terrible, terrible experience with a first-hand VW Golf which lasted less than 2 years before becoming too dangerous to drive (faulty transmission and gas tanks were just a few of the problems). And seeing how poorly German (and European) brands perform in the JD Powers quality study every year, I'm guessing my brother's VW wasn't an isolated experience.

Anyway, I highly recommend a Japanese brand at this time. Maybe not Mitsubishi (though I really, really like the 'Colt'), but certainly give Toyota, Honda and Nissan a look. Their latest models have pretty sweet designs. Plus they're famous for their build quality and reliability, which will make life easy for you when it comes to servicing. My dad's Camry's been with him since '98 and it's never had a problem, other than a flat tyre. The all-new Camry looks very nice and I'm guessing it'll be out in America around mid-August (they showed it at this year's Detroit Motor Show). Honda's new Civic looks very good as well, at it scored pretty well for on-road costs in Motor Trend, which includes petrol and taxes as well. And Nissan's 'Altima' is probably the best-looking D-segment sedan in America.

Oh, and forget about the hype surrounding Hyundai. The only reason they do well in quality surveys is because their cars score well in Initial Quality Tests, which study's a car in the first 90-days of purchase. Long-term wise, it's well below industry average. Same with those 'me-too' Kias.

My current Passat has 100,000 miles on it, and it's just now having to have work (other than routine maintenance) done on it. So while my own VW experience has been very good, I have to say I've heard about a lot of problems with '02 and later cars.

You know, sometimes it's funny. I NEVER wanted to have white car (don't really know why) and I had - including company cars - four white cars until today.

My car right now is dark green, but whenever I open the garage I fear it tuned white over night. :scared:

And BTW if you really end up with a three-wheeler - Vespa has nice cars. At least you get to drive Italian :lol:
