new used car
Even though I prayed and prayed my clunker has gotten older and clunkier. Odometer died awhile back but I'd say it was around 105,000.

I can't fix a damn thing myself.

It's just hard to decide when to get a new old piece of shit that keeps needing this and that.

I ain't got nothing for a down payment. Thinking maybe they'll let me drive off with something worth about 5 grand.

How do you know when it's a cheaper to move on? All I want is something that runs.

Help this old fool. Cars suck.

If all you have is 5k then you need to invest that money in a mechanic class because anything you buy for that amount is going to need work.

Even if you get a Toyota, the alternator, starter, cv joints, hoses, belts, sensors, etc. will go out when the car has high miles. There is no getting around this.

If you get a used car, get one that has 75 to 90,000 miles (or less) on it. You probably won't have many issues for a while. Once a car gets 150k, things start rotting and failing.

I recommend that you get a Toyota. They are the best built cars on the road. I expect a Honda would be a good choice as well but I have no first hand experience with them.

Good luck. Choose wisely.

I don't have anything. I'm just thinking they'll let me drive off with something worth that.

My wife needs to be able to drive it.

Still an option. I thought of it. Used to have one when I was a kid. Wish I wasn't such a fat ass.

RE: new used car
I second the vote for a used Toyota. A few years ago I spent about $8,000 CDN for a 2003 Corolla with just under 100,000 kilometres on it, so about $6K US dollars for a car with 60,000 miles on it. I just passed 150,000 km and the only major repair has been the starter, although there are a couple of non-urgent items on the to-fix list. Overall I've spent less on repairs than with any other car I've owned, and it isn't even close.

Honourable mention to the Ford Taurus I used to have -- Overall it was a pretty decent set of wheels, although a larger car than I like to drive.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

I just wanted to add that horses suck.
