hi, im 17 and from minnesota. my parents are willing to get me a car for my
senior year in high school and for college. i was thinking about a honda
civic or maybe a toyota camry because they are reliable and great gas
mileage. since its my first car, my parents said i had to get a used car,
and im fine with that. i saw a 98 civic with about 115k miles and and 98
camry with about 110k miles, and both cars are asking for $4500. im not
going to mod the cars, im just gratful to get a car that will last me 4
years of college. i just wanted to know, are the civics and camrys with
that many miles good and reliable, will they last me the 4 years of
thanks again everyone. can you please give input as to your general knowledge as to how long honda and toyota cars can go.
I have/ drive a 1999 Toyota Camry CE, and it is the best car for a person in that age group (I am two), so I would go with that. When I bought it at CarMax, we looked at a Honda Civic and a Honda Accord. After 30 min driving the Camry, it had well changed our minds about getting a Honda. The Camry of that year is one of the most verisitile and great cars on the road. It has a decent amount of acceleration, and is big enough to hold 4 adults quite comfortably, and has a trunk big enough to hold just about anything, as well as fold down rear seats if the trunk needs a boost. I would certainly go with the Camry because of what I have previously stated, and it has 5k fewer miles. :thumbs: :2cents:
i dont think anybody can just suggest which car for you to get. we would
have to test drive it look through the car both in and out. why dont you
give it a test drive, BOTH OF THEM! see which one feels better. also, 4.5k
is not something i would call a good deal. its not over priced as well but
why not try looking around more and maybe you will get lucky!
anywayz, both cars are reliable. the contest between the two cars on reliability is to close to call.
Well, when my parents were not as well of as they are now, they drove a civic, and we had over 250 miles on it!! It is a reliable car as well. So basically I reccomend the Honda, but I would test them both out first. And its a good thing you are going to college, a lot of people now a days arent.
well whats your budget?
thanks for the replies. i will check them both out soon.
as for my budget, i guess up to 5k.
wow kids these days have car fast! i rememeber when i was 17...i didnt even
have a car when i was that age..my family is too short for cash. i got my
own car till i was 20.
i would not reccomend a honda....hondas is not suit for a everyday car. honda is not so reliable...in generally hondas is good for a quite while. most hondas dead quick,you fix it every 4 month. i would go for the toyota camry. toyota is the best japanese car.
are you a girl or a boy? if your a girl...camry suits you
