First Car

Hey guys, I'm new to the board, just looking for someones suggestion on a used car. I'm 16, price roughly under 8k. I was loking at Celicas, Accords, Civics, Jettas, but i have no idea what car I would actually like to drive. If any of you have any suggestion, maybe own one, and could help me out, that would be great.

A Honda Civic in decent condition without an outrageous amount of miles is always a good bet...

Thanks for the suggestions machine! Out of the others ones though... Would a 98 or newer accord coupe be to much insurance for a first car? I have no idea and I was also wondering about the Civic too. I like the newer civic look but are theey to expensive overall? How about the accrord?

The problem is that Toyota and Honda are among the most frequently stolen vehicles, so they aren't held in high regard by the insurance companies...I think the Accord would be more expensive than the Civic as far as insurance...

Do you know anything about a 02+Civic, 02+Celica or a 98' accord? These sound like really good cars from Concumer Report Mag. I was wondering if any of yall have driven one maybe? If so gimme some critiques!

I drove an 02 Civic once...It seemed pretty good to me...I haven't driven any 02 Celicas, and I've driven several Accords...I'd go with the Civic for the budget and the insurance...

I had a 98 Integra...Fully modded and pretty fun to cruise around in...As far as the 98 Accord, I recommend it...It's a great car and it'll be reliable...

hmmm....i guess ill play the part of vwhobo while hes out. for one thing, u cant get an s2000 with an $8k budget. last time i knew they cost about $33,000, just a little over his budget. second, the s2000 blows as a first car. for that matter, any car. they should have just put that engine in a damn motorcycle- its worthless for everyday driving. so why dont u pack ure balls up and leave s2000boy, cuz this is for men.
