Amen to that! I don't know that I'd want a vehicle that I couldn't haul a sheet of plywood in. I also haul a lot of art supplies.

Somebody asked me why I had so much art stuff in the trunk my old car. I said "Because you never know when you'll have to kill somebody and leave the state in a hurry." LOL!

IMHO klaeticia222 offers excellent choices cept for One brand.My pick as a journeyman master mechanic with over 45years under my belt Any car that has the Mitsubishi engine.
I have a Chrysler Sebring convertible with the Mitz. motor When I got it it had Sugar in the gas tank that Will Eat valves clog up the injector Destroy the pistons piston rings & Cylender walls.; But I caught it fresh & even tho it was knocking So Bad one would think it had a Broke rod, so 1st I cleaned the gas tank installed a New fuel pump, filter & ran injector & top end cleaner AND Drove it for Two weeks with automatic trans fluid instead of engine oil to help Clean all the internal eng parts.,,, That was well over 100,000 miles ago

Nissan Sentra. I've had two so far. The second one lasted over 12 years and never, not once, broke down on the road. Drove it all over California, all over Utah, and then to Florida. It handled all climates with ease - fog, rain, snow, humidity, etc. The most work I ever had to do was very minor and fairly inexpensive. It doesn't get better than that! Right now I'm driving a 14-year-old Nissan Frontier pickup that I leased at first and then bought because it was so good. You can't go wrong with a Nissan.

make it the one you can afard.it might look like hell on wheels but if it starts and stops and runs good who cares what it look,s like,but i have never spent more than 1000.00$on any car or truck so you should have no problem finding one,just make sure the engines in good shape and the brakes and alingment.and frame that's bent or been in an accident dont bother with it.

Go cheep, something you can work on yourself, (you get a better appreciation for the vehicle if you bust a couple of knuckles and get dirt) and for me I would have to say - stay away from anything run by computers..... Peace

If you want a small car get a Toyota Camry. It's a very dependable car and gets good gas mileage. If you want an suv I would get a Chevy Tahoe very nice looking and also very dependable

If your just learning to drive I recommend a 56 Buick Roadmaster. Otherwise a Hyundai of any model is a good choice. They are safe, dependable and inexpensive. Good Luck.

A working one is a good start. As long as the car can drive. I suggest Volkswagons or BMW's.

The car I drove was a 2003 Pontiac Bonneville SE naturally aspirated 3800 V6. It gets around 24-28 mpg and 20 mpg on gravel roads. It is easy to find parts for. Very reliable 4 door sedan. I passed it down from me, to my sister, and my youngest sister. It has around 250,000 miles and still running strong, just remember regular maintenance.

Use Kelley Blue Book, and Carfax to help you out. However, I would also call local mechanics around town and ask what the most expensive repairs they've done recently on the cars you are considering. Also some specialty repair shops that focus on say one manufacturer often will sell fixed up cars at a reduced rate and also will hold a warranty on the car. All in all your first car should be reliable, but affordable. I would also do a price comparison on insurance rates for the particular car you are looking at.
