Is This Car Worth Buying For The Low Budget I Have?

Postby Fernando » Wed Oct 11, 2017 6:28 am

Antique land-barges are not a good choice for beginning drivers on a budget.
This car is old enough it's likely to have a number of mechanical issues: this car is pre-1986, so the fuel hoses won't be compatible with ethanol.
This car will have a mechanical distributor and carburetor.
Many mechanic shops no longer have the tools to work on these.
This car's AC system (if any) will be an R12 system, so charging the coolant will require an expensive conversion.

On top of that, even if the car is in perfect mechanical condition, it's a gas guzzler.
But given the age and mileage, it's not going to be perfect.
This car will need things like bushings and radiator hoses, spark plugs and distributor cap.
And who knows what will break next?

A better car for someone on a budget would be a 10-12 year old midsize sedan such as the Chevy Cavalier.
With some careful shopping, you could find one in the $1000 range that's in pretty decent condition.

i offered my 2000 eclipse for $7800 even yet it purely had fifty 9,000 miles on it. 100k is amazingly some miles for $5000 for any vehicle. shop looking. How approximately you're making a $5000 down fee on a effective vehicle and get a private loan for sort of $4000? that could make greater experience and you've a greater helpful vehicle!
