You more likely to get fucked by a used car dealership than a person on craigslist, in my experience.

[QUOTE=Protocol7;35719609]anything that's better than my dad's F250 with 12MPG hwy My criteria are as follows: Sedan or coupe required 100k-130k miles are the highest I'll buy Automatic is highly preferable but I can drive a stick relatively well (depends on how touchy the clutch is, I drove a ford ranger for awhile with a clutch that was an asshole) 18-20MPG city would be a good range to meet or exceed Four wheels, an engine, and something recent-ish (1999-2003 seems most affordable for me) Price cap is $7000 before insurance.

You're wanting something 2000ish, right? Hrm [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2968572253.html[/url] Decently fast for what they are, respectable (I know it's a '96, but it's the same car from 96-00 and they are still fairly modern looking) [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2949464162.html[/url] Terrible mileage but it's got [i]dat LS1![/i] If you want to look cool and get something slightly older, you can still pick up a 'vette way under your budget: [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2933049181.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2931841532.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2920668508.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2871627910.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2959325460.html[/url] If you're really wanting to save money and get a car that will last [i]forever[/i] and cost pocket change to repair you could go with an older Civic: [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2956785283.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2961824915.html[/url] [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2962602256.html[/url] They usually have lots of miles but they're good for 300-350k+ if treated well. And parts for them are INSANELY cheap, just browsing your craigslist can find you tons of bits for them easily. Plus, the engines are like LEGO bits, any D series engine will [i]basically[/i] bolt in there using what's there and run, no problems. You can't really argue with 30+ MPG for $1500 or less. Blow a motor up? No problem. If you did that in one of those Mercedes or BMWs, you'd shell out thousands for a new one. With the oldass Civic, you'll be spending [url=http://denver.craigslist.org/pts/2968392337.html]dollars[/url], sometimes [url=http://denver.craigslist.org/pts/2911659715.html]pennies[/url] for another engine, and doing work on them yourself is super easy. It's how I get most of my friends into working on cars. Head gasket jobs take mere hours, a weekend if you're a wrench turning noob, and the parts are ~$50 or less. Changing the entire motor can be done in a weekend if you have a cherry picker to lift it out with. Up to you, though. I'm just trying to help a bro out and get him something that will not only be easy to drive and cheap to maintain, but also last you a [i]lifetime[/i].
A Civic was my first choice. Are the newer ones that much harder to maintain? I keep coming back to Mustangs. I think they'd be a decent first car, but they're also American. I kinda want something with a bit of power. But I'm probably being too picky. If I get a Mustang over a Civic my insurance prices would skyrocket. [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] I keep finding listings like this though [url]http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/2977378939.html[/url] All I can think is when I see that is "what's wrong with it??"
Civics 2001+ suck, I'd avoid them, they changed the tried-and-true platform to a newer, more complex, and weaker one. If you want a newish Civic, 1996-2000 is the way to go. The '96 Si conversion I linked is worth checking out if you want a little power -- Those little things churned out some serious ponies for a 1.6 liter. 160 horsepower in bone stock trim. That's 100 horsepower/liter, in a car that weighs 2319 pounds. Compare that to a Mustang in the price range you're asking, something 1995-2004 probably, even the V8 was rated at 215-260 horsepower, about 50 horsepower/liter, in a car weighing [i]a thousand pounds[/i] or more over the Civic. *shrug* I think that '96 Civic is worth the money, 4k and it's got all of the Civic Si equipment, which is worth some money alone. It's really dependent on your taste in vehicles, so I'm not going to say "GET IT!!!1!1#", but it is a good deal.

[QUOTE=bradley;35722129]Civics 2001+ suck[/QUOTE] What the hell bro
You gotta buy stuff on craigslist quick, some things on there are gone within minutes of the ad being put up

[QUOTE=Psygo;35722378]this is so cute, I want it :([/QUOTE] It is really nice, I wouldn't mind it myself.
em2 civics don't suck, they're just not very mod friendly with no aftermarket support. The car itself is still good, the only thing that sucks on mine is the tires, and that's not the cars fault. I will admit it's a bit slow as well. I just can't handle it when someone says my car sucks IT DOESNT SUCK FUUUUUUUUUCK
I'll contact that guy about the SI Civic. Seems like a nice little thing. [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] Actually looks like it needs some work and is easy to steal from. Kinda puts me off.
well i suppose not everybody wants to work on their car...
Well if it runs and just needs the alarm fixed, exhaust fixed and the shocks replaced I can't imagine that's a whole lot Even if that was $1000 more that's still not bad [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] Talked with the guy, ended up finding where he's at and will probably check it out Saturday. Don't give a shit what my parents say, it's a respectable car, good looking and I wanted a Civic originally since I heard they're easy to work on.
Well, good luck. I hope it's what you're looking for.
it's a manual, though I'm spoiled on automatics :/
That's what you think, until you get to enjoy driving a manual.
Well I haven't driven one in awhile. Are Civics an easy drive? The Ranger I had to drive was pretty finicky about the clutch/gas ratio
it's something you just have to get down. Civics don't really have a lot of low end torque (atleast mine doesn't), but it's still pretty easy to get going.
Yeah, my problem was getting it going. I just don't like the concept of buying a car I'd have to learn how to drive
[QUOTE=Protocol7;35723890]it's a manual, though I'm spoiled on automatics :/[/QUOTE] Good boy, don't let them fool you They only like manuals because they're gay and like to fondle sticks. :wink:
manual in small cars is ALOT different from even if you go up to a van, I can't drive my dads Peugeot van without stalling it like a bitch, or our ducato either, however first time I drove manual was in my bros sierra and I did just fine.
