ut oh :(

Well I just went to replace my parking bulbs and I hear a hissing noise. I start to smell something awful. IT'S MY RADIATOR LEAKING! frown So this is really bad since I hardly have any money with college and all. I also need new tires and something is fucked up with my eletrical again. My mom just got off the phone with the Toyota dealership we go to a lot and it would cost us $400. frown So I might just get a new used car and get rid of the Camry. We might go to the dealership tonight to look around. That would be awsome if I find a celica!

since your in college i highly disagree with any Turbo car for the moment. since your still in school and money is tight look for a used 93-99 tercel or a cressida. even the CRX or civic stock will be a good choice. very reliable and also good on gas mileage. once you get out of school go for the sports car.

yup, get something that is affordable. if you get a Turbo-ed car you might/will have to make a lot of tune-ups to maintain it.

good luck thumbsup

Well I look at like at least 8 dealerships. Ranging from Nissan, Acura, Toyota and some others. I found one Celica GTS fully loaded for $22k eek Gimme! lol. But other then that there was mostly carollas,camrys. I was really interested in this Nissan. What do you guys think of it? Can someone Carfax the vin?

It's a Nissan Maxima SE 74k miles,

What do you guys think about Nissan? Are they reliable?

Tomarrow we are going back to the Toyota dealer and talking to the main guy. Will have him look around for a Celica or something of the sort. I saw a Acura RSX Type-S tonight too grin

Thanks for the input guys. I'm a real noob when it comes to cars. And I'm also thinking about insurance cost too frown so that Nissan is looking pretty tasty. I'll ask about a Tercel too.

Grab a used one fron a scrap yard or have your's recored which is way cheaper than new & usually is built better.

Well. I test drove the Scion tC today. That car is fucking awsome!!! I would get that but insurance would rape me. No Celicas frown But I'm really interested in the Corolla Xr-S. That might be a winner. Monday I'm going to contact my auto insurance and ask them about price.
