New Car Time

  1. So, last sunday I had an accident in my Yaris, and it's totaled. This means that I'm in the market for a replacement.

    These are the cars I test drove today, all around $24k, but there is haggling room. And yes, I know the prices suck, but that's how it works for new cars here.

    -Toyota Corolla S
    -Hyundai Elantra Coupé
    -Honda Civic LX(not really an option, because it doesn't really have any of the options I want for how expensive it is, and the salesman limited himself to get an idiotic impulse buy out of me)

    Still have to look at Nissan, Ford, Kia, Mitsubishi, Ford, etc.

    I don't really trust the used car market, but I'm very open to suggestions.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
     
  2. I'd avoid Mitsubishi. Ford and Kia make some really good affordable cars right now so do drive those.
     
  3. Story/pics on your totaled Yaris?
     
  4. can you buy a car on the mainland and bring it over? that's how much a gti costs
     
  5. I hadn't thought about VW, will have to check prices.

    I generally stat away from anything European, but I guess it's worth checking out. I will get raped with taxes anyway if I buy it in the states.

    Yaris story incoming.

  7. Volvo V70R

    or S60R
    fyck I want one so bad. Can't afford a new car yet, still a lot of fixing up to do at my new place. After that is all taken care of I need a new car, especially if I'll have a more respectable position at work.
     
  8. i wouldn't suggest a vw besides a gti. seems kind of dumb you have to pay import taxes as a protectorate.
     
  9. You can have mine
     
  10. I hate the rules, but they are still there. :/

    I'll post pics and story tomorrow. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/PnutSpecial.gif"></A>
     
  11. Import a car a panel at a time
     
  12. Want a 2007
     
  13. Get the Honda Civic. Live like a pauper, you decadent westerner. You don't need options, anyway.
     
  14. That's a pretty shitty list of cars. I have a corolla, it is terrible. Im sure for $24k you can bet better cars, what about something a couple of years old?
     
  15. CinqueChee!
     
  16. Why stay away from Mitsubishi? Any horror stories for any car in my price range?
     
  17. 3rd gen Mazda 3?
     
  18.  
  19. If you don't like what Ford has to offer you should check out Ford.
     
  20. they're build quality is flat out shite. they don't use the best parts and all of that ruggedness they got years ago has completely disappeared with the engineers who made it that way.

    I also hated working on them (years ago when I would acutally work on them). needlessly engineered to make simple things a pain in the ass.
     
  21. vw golf/audi a1
     
  22. I stopped by Mitsubishi's corner at the Chicago Auto Show. I didn't get the impression that they even gave a #$%#.
     
  23. whenever i see someone driving a gallant i wonder what went wrong in their life
