anyway; serious post now.

 

honda is a safe bet for reliability, but, always pay the 100$ to have an inspection done (on ANYthing you are looking at)

ford/mazda late models have come a long way

toyota is overpriced and plagued (usually) with electrical problems

I love VW's, but, german\euro cars are "temperamental" (like a woman)

as far as dodge or chev goes, you get what you pay for (which isn't much) and something is bound to fuck up hard (this goes for mitsubishi as well) which is why they offer 100,000 mile warranties (to sell the bloody vehicle). my company uses dodge\chrysler as a fleet service and it would scare you some of the shit I've seen gone wrong with our vehicles

subaru is a problem waiting to happen (with the shittiest service departments in the world. if you want a headache for a vehicle *with a few minor exceptions - defy I'm looking in your direction* buy a subaru)

I realise that everyone has something to say about one brand or another, but I'm generalising here, take that into consideration. there are exceptions and horror stories with every vehicle brand out there...

 

in terms of the buying process...

don't buy on your first trip there.

don't let the salesman/manager act or seem like they are doing you a favour, cause they aren't

be as non-chalant as you can. they need your sale, you don't need their car.

buying new at a dealership sucks ass...

 

had my first battle the other night.

 

3 points to help you come out on top:

 

1-have financing lined up through a credit union with a good apr% before you go.

2-know your credit score

3-read reviews and call a few dealerships in your area to find out what incentives they have, and what they're going to do for you.

4-if you think you can get a better deal than what theyre offering, walk away! i had to the other night and this car was ideal for me...

I wanted to add that I bought the Camry I did (98) because it was a quiet ride and I knew it would be reliable. My dad even has an old, probably 88 Camry and he refuses to get rid of it because it still runs so well. That said I'm thinking, as I continue to get promotions, I may go for a Subaru WRX - is this a good choice? Should I buy a newer model Accord and disregard the expense?

Dealerships use whats called a black book. If you can find one you will know exactly what your car is worth. For every make and model it tells you what the car is worth as standard then they add a $100 if there is a sunroof ad 250 if there are running boards. Things like this. Ive seen trade ins get $1 before. I told the appraiser that was fucked up and that there was at least half a tank of gas in there.

 

i actually had this black book vs. blue book conversation/argument with a dealer when i bought my first honda. he threw out some bullshit price and when i looked at the blue book i said "sorry, thats not what this says, you need to drop the price". he responded with "well, my book says the car is worth this much". we went back and forth for a bit and needless to say we both wasted each others time that day and i walked down the street and bought from someone else.

 

that experience has pretty much set the tone for me when it comes to buying a car.

go to a respectable used dealership. i'm sure you can figure out which those are and which those are NOT. they can take care of the rest for you. buy american. because asians are faggots, no offense asians. do not buy a subaru because aussies are faggots. euro cars are okay. german. what are you looking for? if you're financing def. get as much for a down as possible, and make sure your insurance is relatively in line before you officially sign your life to the car...

any questions specifically?

 

American made vehicles can suck shit out of my asshole.
