Yeah, who knows it may not need any maintenance at all. Could be a diamond. But could also be the opposite.

Found this one also. I'm actually really considering this one. We had a 2007 Hyundai Sonata, which was when the quality was meh, and put a ton of miles on it and it was awesome.

2010 HYUNDAI ELANTRA

For the miles it looks super clean in the pics.

I'd take the BMW for the same price... I dunno you'd have to look at them. That Hyundai looks so "base" like it is trying really hard to make you notice how many features it doesn't have lol.

Yeah i'd have to find time to drive them. I don't really have much of that lately. The BMW and Fusion are in the bay area fairly close. The Elantra is in Sacramento, so i'd have to drive for that one. I am still considering the BMW since it is super low miles. Been finding other ones exactly like it with more miles for the same price. And even though its a daily, i'm sure i'd have more fun in the BMW lol. I'd be able to take that to Euro meets lol. There is one on Sundays i think right down the street from me.

I actually wasn't able to get video. I forgot to charge my GoPro battery, but i got a few pics, mostly of my car and friends though. I'll post them in the NorCal Mustangs page. I have seen a bunch of pics on the CAFords Facebook page though. Saw a few snaps of my car on there also.

On the 3.0 duratec in the fusion, just watch the cats that are part of the headers, they tend to clog and take out the motor.

I looked up common issues on it also. And it seems like the trans is known to be finicky.

It'll come down to what insurance looks like. The Fusion is $1k more. I'm trying to ball on a budget here lol. With insurance and car note i'm hoping to stay under $220 max. With having to worry about tuition coming up and the stock market about to tank thats about all i can squeeze.

When did harbor freight close? I live in Aiken and work in Augusta. That place was great for little odds and ends.

Finally, another person in the CSRA on the board. I was beginning to think that I was the only one.

I think Harbor Frieght closed a few weeks ago. It hasn't been long. If that place is still open after having a going out of business sale I will feel like an idiot.

Probably not going to be able to get that BMW. Interest rate would jump to like 9% for a car older than 10 years. And the fusion is a little bit more than i'd like to spend still. I'm going to look into the Elantra a bit more. Still looks like a pretty clean car. Should be able to get under 3% on it.

Stock market was up today so i pulled $1500 out of my mutual fund, loan should only be about $5500. And still going to see if i can haggle the guy down to like $6500 instead of $6990. If i can then the $400ish would be used for a few months payments.

I'd have to gauge their personality type to know for sure how they would react. Would figure out what to offer when i'm there.... Only thing is its in Sacramento so i'd have to find time to drive back. And i'm working 40 hours this week and next, which includes a lot of time on the weekends, so idk when i will even have time.

Not sure how far that is from you but the way it sound you would probably b pissed if U drive there only to come back without it. Straight up offer $5500. U have $1k to work with. I bought mine 3 states away. Had a price in mind low balled and snagged it. Besides they all have the same personality. Anytime I want a car I have at least 3 to choose from. This way my attitude is more like I don't give a rats a$$ if j but it it not. It gives me the upper hand. It's funny to me it's more like a game. Not that I'm filthy but doesn't make a diff if I save a $100 or a $1000. I get off more when I get what I want especially if they come off as they can budge.

Don't get the beamer !!! Lol, it will need maintenance like any other car, and it won't be cheap, parts are a joke, on the other hand they're a blast to drive, but also so much so that you're bound to break something having fun. Not hating, cuz M3's are a pretty awesome car imo, always loved them, but wouldn't want to maintain one. Just my 2cents. Our 09 focus slt was a super comfortable ride and got us to Vegas and back for $150 in gas, they're not quite a fusion, but sweet DD's. Sold it for 90 hundred dollar bills dude brought in his pocket. Just sold my boat (asking$5k) to a dude with 43 hundred dollar bills in his pocket. Whatever u get, cash money in hand does wonders 馃憤

Yeah, i applied and got approved for a loan today. Figured i'd over-estimate the loan to $6k to give some breathing room. That along with the $1500 i am pulling from my investment, i'll have $7500 to work with. I'm going to keep looking around.

For that money you can snag a pretty low mile daily. It's all about patience man. I think you need to remember not to buy something you will want to mod. That Beamer could be tempting. Just get a grandma car and move on. You don't have to be ashamed, you have a mustang in the garage.

My main concern is actually comfort, which is why i thought of it originally. I'm not worried about it being a cool car or not.

People can tell me all they want that a Prius is comfortable. I will tell them to enjoy it.

If I were shopping for a used DD right now it would be an older 5 series BMW. They ride great, have plenty of power, a lot of room, and are reliable.

I am someone that normally drives a quad cab Ram. At the moment my Mustang is my DD and I am beginning to dislike the car. I miss driving a vehicle with a front seating area as large as a living room.

I need small. The Mustang will get my parking stall at my apartment. But the other car would get the street, which is very difficult to find parking usually, and it is at a decent incline. So something very easy to find small spots and parallel park.

So i heard back from one of the internships i applied for, the one that felt a bit more promising... I didn't get it. If i don't get any of the ones i applied for i'll be able to work with my friend over summer, so i will absolutely need a DD then, but i will also have a lot more $$$ to spend since i'll be working a crap ton of hours and overtime.
