Need Car Help ASAP!

Hello-
I am a single mom in need of a reliable car in order to get to work.I don't have enough extra funds for a downpayment and credit is less than poor. I've been searching for charities in my area, but have not heard back from anyone that I have contacted. Any help/ suggestions are appreciated!
Please respond!

Welcome to the Forums

Well for a car, I'd suggest a Civic, reliable and cheap...

Actually, while reliable, civics aren't really cheap. There are many much cheaper cars out there. Anyway I don't think thats the advice she's looking for...

Although Civic and Corollas are decent choices, they do run higher up in the cost scale. I'd suggest a Sentra. Reliable, easy to come by and cheap in price.

You could try Nice Cars if there is one in your area. This dealership is geared toward people who can't afford a downpayment and have less than perfect credit but need a car. They will finance for you.

while everyone is on sarcasm let me suggest an srt-4 lol....
Real advice. If youre looking for a good cheap (gotta give us a limit to work with) car, then you cant really have the best of both in most cases. Not all cheap cars are reliable, and not all reliable cars are cheap. Give us exactly a limit so we can go from there. Thanks

Judging by he initial post, I think she can only afford an older, cheaper car. Most old Jap cars are reliable, and cheap, too!
