New Ride?

Since I ask everyone for their opinions on everything else, why stop?

What kind of new ride (car) should I get?

-I am going to look at a 1999 Jetta tonight.

-I don't need anything fancy pants (lol), just some reliable transportation

-Also, If you know of anyone who has a car for sale, let me know

-I am looking to spend around 6-10k but can go more if I likey......

Thanks guys.

Pimp Your Ride!

If you're patient, you can find a Mustang GT '99 or newer with probably around 60K miles for below $10,000. Most of these will have some upgrades already, Cold Air Intake, Flowmaster Dual Exhaust, etc (Basics, but essentials).

For reliable though? I like the Jetta choice, they're relatively inexpensive and classy. I'd tell you to get a truck, so you can haul your bike around, but it'd be hard to find something that didn't have a lot of miles in that price range already (and is relatively new).

I've been doin a lot of car research lately, so let me know if you got any Q's.


Here are some Mustang links I browse regularly, looking for any good deals -- and check out Autotrader, sometimes you can find some good deals on there.

FYI....
The VW Jetta is the most popular car among gay males.

Seriously, a friend of mine has one and I never let him forget it.

For 6-10k you should be able to pick up something really nice. Good luck.

I am selling my 02 WRX with 60,000 miles for $16,000.

Many mods, but it is yellow.

Got to love the pinto...

Here is the sad thing about the #1 car among gay males, I already new this statistic...but thought it would be a good price on the car. I went and test drove it yesterday....She is asking about 2500K more than what it's worth....Major body blemishes, passenger side mirror missing....manual windows etc....

What do you think about this http://chicago.craigslist.org/car/77089381.html

That's a good deal for the Explorer ... XLT (3rd Row of seats? Did they have it yet in 1999?). Just make sure it's not a rat, pictures look good though.
