Hey, got my license in September and am finally getting around to getting a car. So, originally my dad was going to just buy me a car, but because our house hasn't sold and not a lot of extra cash right now (not to say by any means we're strapped for money). Anyway, I'm not going to start making the payments and paying for insurance. So am looking for a car, here's the general guidlines, please post if you have any in mind. Between $9k-$12k Can't be too small (aka: no gti's ) No american cars (they break) Currently looking at a V6 4Motion Passat GLX Wagon, so something comparable to that. BTW: before anyone tries, no flaming please. I'm not spoiled, I'm paying for it. And also no advise on how to better spend my money, just car recommendations please.
