buying first car

hello,

im 17, just got my license and am looking to by my first car. i have always wanted a ford probe, my entire life. but now that i've done some research alot of people are telling me that its not the way to go as the parts are hard to find if they need replacing.

can anybody suggest a car in the same price range that is similar to a ford probe with design and performance? thanks

There is nothing inherently wrong with a Probe but like any car they have their good and bad points. Parts are no harder to get for them for than any other car of a like age.

As far as suggesting another car in the same price range, what price range is that? A quick look at autotrader.com gives prices from $6000 to $500. Quite a large price range.

A great first car would be a Camaro. If you are looking for a good solid V6, then the camaro is a good choice, as long as you get a 3.4L The 2.8Ls are crap. The camaros are in your price range and they are easy to work on a soup up

First car

Depends on what type of car you like... If you want to race, 1/4 mile etc. then in my opinion u should get a honda or foeign car. fords are not that great....plus hondas are more reliable
