      I'm not interested in those things, I just need you to recommend models or brands, and what to look for before buying it, I don't know much about cars and I need your experience in that

    $5k, eh? And it has to be a vehicle?
    I'd say you're looking for some kind of weird Dodge Stratus.

      I'm looking for something that will take me from my house to work, that is stable when snow falls and, above all, that is a reliable car or truck or SUV. something that can say I made a good purchase. It's the first time I've bought a car and I don't know much about it, other than what I've read on the internet.

        Pick 3. If your job isn't minimum wage, and you're not at risk of getting fired a month from now, use the $5k as a down payment on a 2020-2024, low trim Mazda 3 or Toyota Corolla. Payment should be like $200-300/m for 3-5 years unless you have ass credit.

            2020-2023 would be a used car. I understand you have zero interest in cars, otherwise you wouldn't be here, that's why I'm suggesting base model, base trim, reliable econoboxes. Anything you can buy for $5k alone is going to be a total dice roll for reliability in the current market. You might get 10 years out of it with only minor repairs, it might send a piston a week after you buy it. At $5k, you're looking at 15+ years old, and or, 100k+ miles.

            Different anon from OP here. Similar boat but I got 25k in my bank and make lower end of 70k per year. Any idea how much I should be paying for a Corolla or Mazda 3 like you described? Would a 2024 new be a bad idea even at a low trim?
            I also just need something but I'm in no rush. No experience buying cars though.

            I make similar money, personally I'd want something a bit nicer, for example I have a Mazda 6, GT trim, but that was bought new, and pre-Covid.
            For base trim, new off the lot, they're like 22k for the Corolla, and 25k for the Mazda as sticker. For 2020-2022, somewhere around 50-60% of that.
            Lots of people will tell you buying brand new is always a bad idea, but I disagree. Buying new every 3-5 years is dumb unless you've got tons of money to blow, a lease is a better option for that, but if you're the type to buy a car and keep it for a good 8-10 years or more, it's not that much of a difference, and you know exactly how its been treated.

            Thanks I really appreciate that! It's been a confusing time figuring out what to get but that helps a lot.

            I'm OP.
            I don't know anything about cars, I'm just looking for recommendations on a car that is good in terms of durability, I don't know what else I should pay attention to, I've read something but it doesn't compare to your experience

            at a $5k budget, if it doesn't have major mechanical issues then it's probably going to within half a year
            at a $10k budget, you're probably looking at a 10 year old base model econobox that's been somewhat abused + scratched up but still runs fine
            at a $15k budget, same as above but 5 years old and slightly less miles (or salvage/rebuilt title semi-nice car)
            at a $20k budget, you can finally afford a well maintained 10 year old muscle car or 5 year old econobox
            if you have a higher budget than that but don't already know what cars you're interested in then you're putting way too much money into a car
