If you want a first car that isn’t in the mechanic shop being fixed constantly and sucking all of the money out of your savings don’t buy a European made vehicle. Get a Asian made car. A Lexus, Acura, Mitsubishi, etc. are more reliable and if you change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles you should be able to put over 200,000 miles on the car. GM makes a good product too. Don’t rush into purchasing a vehicle. Go test drive them and have a person that can check the car out for you along so you don’t get burnt by some used car salesman.
