What about a nice Ford Transit. They get good mileage, are cheap to insure, more reliable than most and you can have sex in teh back.

Ford Focus?

- Dirt cheap to buy because they depreciate so much. You can get a recent one with low miles for far less than $9000, putting the remainder towards fixing every single stupidly small thing wrong with the car.
- Pretty much dead reliable.
- Parts are dirt cheap when they do break, or when you need a new set of brake pads or struts.
- Cheap to insure.
- I'm 6'3 and have no trouble fitting in one.

She finally decided to go get new keys for it, so she had it flat-bedded to the dealership last summer. They changed the oil and did $1000 worth of cleaning on the interior, and it was fine. Everything still works, car drives fine. Yes, the lady is fucking crazy, straight up legit.

Sounds like she has some clinical mental illness holy shit

Can't you get a POS Kia for around that price brand new, with a long ass warranty that would save you money in the long run? I'd never buy one in my lifetime, but if you're on a really strict budget and don't care what your car is, I wonder how they are in terms or reliability.

If you can spring $20k a Kia is a really good choice, if not, it's a horrible choice.

Used Ford Focus ftw

I've been looking at a used Ford Focuses, Jeeps, trucks and 4Runners.
Ford Focus seems like the most realistic of those cars since it's so practical.

Subaru Legacy Wagon.

I'm 6'4" 225lbs and I fit fine, I can even sleep in the back if I want to, repairs are easy, insurance is dirt cheap because it's a 4 banger wagon.
