I asked about the VW rabbit Diesel being safe on this form a few days ago and I see that it’s not safe. But now, I need another car as a first car. Im not some jerk kid with $10k for a first car. I have a modest 2k (i could get up to 3k if needed) to spend on a car with airbags and low insurance. I want to keep away from the accords, civics, camrys, and corollas. Im not trying to find a muscle car, but I want something different. I will have a 22 mile commute to and from school everyday and about 5 or 6 miles of driving to cross country practice. So about 50 miles a day. I need something safe, efficient, different, stylish, has 4 seats (no delsol or ranger for me) and reliable. I have a few I like so far.
Any early 90’s volvo is cool to me (the seniors on the cross country team have them) (92-95)
Any affordable Saab
Toyota Celica (looks nice)
Dodge Neon (they look weird enough to look kinda cool)
If there is anything that fits my description that is not listed please tell me. I like vintage things, so I want my car to reflect that. Tell me if any of the above are good or bad. thanks, i like this community form.
