I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for good starter (first) cars.
It depends on how much you want to spend. I suggest that you either buy something with cash or get as small a loan as possible. Also, if you ask this question, you may not know much about cars and won’t be able to repair it immediately. You might consider a new car or less than 3 years old. They typically have far fewer repairs than a ten year old car. Tell us moe about your finances and what you want in a car.
What are you going to use it for, hauling yourself and your drum set? Do you have a lot of friends and you are planning lots of road trip? Do you only plan to drive 10 miles to work and back every day…?
