it depends on what you are looking for. New or used? Manual or Automatic? truck or car? etc.

buy a bus ticket, theyre awesome, you don't even have to drive so you can like ... sleep while you move ... n stuff

(also prepare to be utterly (possibly understandably) hated by people driving total junk heaps because their parents didnt have $20,000 to give them at 16 ...)

Wow... 20k for your first car. Kinda spoiled aren't you?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Well i would like something with a V8 like my moms Tahoe and my dads truck, and if it were automatic that would be nice but learning to drive a stick might be fun. Tomm i can't buy a bus ticket i live in a town of 3000 people no public transportatin! Something used preferably as to cut down on the cost.

unless you are buying used a v8 car/truck is out of the picture.

It depends on what you like. Personally i like the new/recent altimas that have the CVT transmissions. Efficient engines for their size, fit the power curve perfectly. Always the "perfect" gear ratio, meaning itll be faster and more efficient than a similar power engine. it also takes away from the gearing jerk. lots of other cars have cvts tho. Like the Mitsubishi Lancer. That CVT comes with a paddle shifter option with makes it ride like a manual(kinda).

This thread was seriously a bad idea...

I mean, its basically like you titled it "Please come flame me."

Go to cars.com for car info, not the Pit. Most of the Pit can't drive dude...

I was as surprised as you guys my sisters first car was a single cab truck that my dads friend sold to him for $6,000. I asked if i could get a better car now and keep it until i can buy my own instead of getting a good car when i graduate.

Buy a prius for realz.

I mean, atleast the gas mileage is good and it isn't a bad looking car.

Buying gas sucks balls man...Trust me...

My first car was a 1998 Ford Windstar with 265 000 km on it that i paid $600
My second car was a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z22 with 160 000 km that i paid $700
My current car is a 1999 Mercury Cougar with a V6 engine that i paid almost 10 times less than 20k.

that being said... with 20K i'd go for either a brand new Honda Civic or a recent Acura integra or RSX. You could even get a good deal on a Mazda three. But honda and acura are the most reliable cars that will last you long and not cost you too much to maintain.

and..... here's a picture of my current car that i got for about 2 grand :P

Ford and Dodge are crap. They have really high maintenance. Mustangs look sweet as hell, but they get crap for gas and break down a lot.

If you really want that type of muscle car, get a mustang from a couple years ago.

Personally, I'd look into old school muscle cars if i had 20k to spend on a car.

However, I must agree with the guy on page 1. Hondas are pretty much what you want.

They get great gas milage.
They are dependable, don't break down or have major problems.
They are pretty safe too.

Honda/Toyota is probably where you want to look. Honda 3's are really nice too and the same things apply.

Civic, Corrola, or a 3 is where you want to look. I have a Nissan Altima, and I lover her, how she handles and drives, but she has had major brake problems...I got her from my mom when she got a new car. She is a 2002 Altima that I got in 2007....She had 145k miles on her.

I guess I'd reccomend the new Altimas too because they worked out the problems with them I heard...

Hybrids are a great buy too...

Its really up to you dude. Learn from ppl's mistakes. A car that is going to last you a long time and run efficiently is deff the best buy.

20 f*cking thousand? buy a good sports car from before 2002.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

Get a used Audi dude. My mom just got one of the new A6s and it's freaking great.

that viper has for SURE been in a wreck if it's that cheap. as a rule of thumb, when you see a $90 000 car going for $17k even used, you should be hearing "cheap viper" the same way you'd be hearing "bargain parachute"

$20,000 holy shit... I'm 16 now and I'm not planning on getting my first car for at least 2 more years. And even then, I'm looking at $5000 or less used. Crazy motherfuck.
