Need Advice: All American RoadTrippin' Car

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Need Advice: All American RoadTrippin' Car

Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice.

I'm from Australia (Spare me the convict jokes), and will be travelling to the US next year for 6 mths. 2 of those months will be spent (hopefully) road tripping.

I'm going with 2 mates and we hope to buy a cheap, 2nd hand car when we get there. (We're on a student budget, so hopefully something under $5000USD)

I know my Australian cars, but i know nothing about American cars.

Could anyone suggest something? I'd prefer it to be something typically american as we hope to go on an all american road trip.

Bear in mind that we'd like a bit of space, as there will be 3 of us and a fair bit of luggage.

Cheers.

Sooo many cars to chose from. I'm not American, but I understand where you're coming from (If I were to road trip around the US I'd want a US car, too!). How big a car are you looking for?

Well, i have two schools of thought on this...one is to get an old brash car like a cadillac with chrome and such...

The other is to go with say a 10 year old minivan or van with a heap of space. Something like a Chrysler voyager or a passenger type ford transit.
