I'm thinking about getting my first car in burgerland. This is the cheapest result from cars.com close to my area. It makes no sense to me, 18k sounds like a lot for a very basic shitty car.

Is this normal?

    Because it's new. Stop being a pussy and look at used cars for a fifth of the price.

      So this is what I should expect for all new cars? I could look at a used car, just that I'm not confident I could really inspect that it to make sure I'm not being ripped off. But yeah there are some sweet deals there. Any DA recs? Tourist here.

        Nissan Versa is THE cheapest new car you can buy. Everything only goes up from here.
        What's your budget?
        The most basic recommendations you will get anywhere are Toyota Corolla/Camry and Honda Civic/Accord.
        These will have some premium over domestic shitboxes like Chevy Cruze or Ford Fusion.
        A lot depends on the nature of the listing, like maintenance records, previous owners, mileage, etc., not just the year, make, and model.

          Had a 2014 fusion, no issues at all. Died in an accident at 164k miles (en route to get an oil change, oddly enough)
          Twas a great car, would highly recommend.

          At least the car will run, numbnuts. Also I was expecting there to be new cars under this price, try to interpret my post before replying some moronic snarky shit.

          Thank you. No real budget, I'm mostly just looking. I would use the car for weekend escapades (not commuting) and I live in downtown Seattle so I wouldn't use it much day-to-day. 18k seems like too much to pay for the occasional weekend trip.

            If you want reliability in general, get a car with an N/A engine and a standard transmission.
            Unironically something like this lel: https://www.carmax.com/car/23493991

            Don't take my word for it BTW, I just looked on CarMax for the cheapest fricken cars. This could be complete junk.

            Aren't I due for a world of pain getting a car with >100k miles? Also manual transmission would be a lot better IMO.

            and a 2.0 or larger displacement

            ideally you should pay a bit more for a NA 2.5L, but a reputable NA 2.0 4cyl is going to last.
            i would advise paying more for an automatic transmission as well because it doesn't limit your market in resale; but what really matters is that it is not a cvt.

            Same b***h Black person logic that makes everyone buy npc white cars. Not even correct. MT is sought after

            MT is sought after by poor people and enthusiasts looking to israelite you down for a knock around car because they know the 95% of entry level commuter car market doesnt want a standard to commute in city traffic.
            you're just a fool if you actually believe yourself.

            Honestly most gomfy Seattle driving was in an underpowered 5 MT shitbox. Something about WOT hill climbing and knowing that 90% of drivers couldn't even go 10 minutes without bumping shit and stalling out in my car.

            If you're rarely using the car, I'd suggest rideshare or renting.

            Yeah Seattle has a pretty good car market and lots of crime/ bad drivers. You should buy a $3k minivan or Subaru wagon.

        Yeah, Used cars are fine.
        Buy one that's like 2-3 years old.
        If you want to be picky, try to get one that has less than 10,000 driven miles a year.

        Ive purchased around 50 cars and I was ripped off on half of them. You can tell a car is shit, but sometimes you buy it anyway. Just dont do that. Also you font have to bother checking out 90% of cars. You see something cool on graigslist and call the guy and hes some heavily accented guy trying to hard sell or wants to meet at a safeway parking lot whatever bullshit, you just next out of it.
