So there's about over 9000 vehicle threads right now, i figured i would post one too.
So it's nearing my 16th birthday, and my mom has recognized that with school, playing golf for my school, and also a job, I don't WANT a car, I NEED a car. Seeing as my mom is going back to school for her degree in anesthesiology and my dad is a perfusionist and works long hours, theres no way theyd be able to cart me around like they did. So here's the deal, since im going to Windells, my vehicle budget is a little limited than it would have been. Originally we placed it at 5 grand, combined from my grandparents and parents, now we're looking at 3 grand combined grandparents and parents. If I want anything more than that, I have to save the money (understandably)
So a good friend of mine has 2 brothers who have both gone through a 2002 honda accord, its standard, with about 120k miles on it, its in perfect condish save for a SMALL dent on one door. Got a pretty nice sound system in it, some spiffy tint on the windows, etc etc. They want 3500 for it. Is it worth saving up the extra 500 for it, or should i opt for a car that is just 3 grand and not have to save the money?
