I need help choosing a first car to buy.

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  I need help choosing a first car to buy.

I've got around 20,000 dollars Canadian, i need some sugestions on what my first car should be. I am open to any sugestion, also if you could or want to provide some spec's for the car.

I noticed that in your profile, you've put “Honda Prelude” on your cars list. Well you should be able to get a top shelf, latest generation Prelude for about 20k (Canadian) depending on its age, mileage etc.
Personally I would choose an Impreza Turbo over a Prelude any day.
If Insurance is an issue then how about a Ford Focus 2.0 16v (130bhp)?
It might not be Japanesse but so what?

Don't know the prices of cars over there and what u can get. But for 20,000 Canadian dollars. Skyline r33 Gtst is in that range here. So is N/A MkV supras. Subaru WRX .... S14a Silvia. Mr2 are nice, but handle like crap.

if ya could, I'd go the S14a Silvia, As its the quickest out of the group I named.
But I'm biased :D

f.y.i - skylines are not street-legal in canada

94+ supras here are + 25gz, but you can find a really good '90-'93 supra for about 15-20k

subaru wrx's are in the +35g range (new), the only ones you would be able to find for 20g are the 98-00 subaru rs'es

there's a ton of cars out there in that price range. . .

its all up to you and what u like
