Hey all! The time has come where I've saved enough for a used car. My budget sits at around $2500 and I am currently residing in the Valley outside Los Angeles. I'm looking for nothing fancy but something very reliable. I'm narrowing my searches to Toyota and Honda cars with clean titles and under 150k miles. Have looked a bit on Craigslist and will go check out a street where people sell their cars. I'm here to learn more and am open to new ideas. I know a car enthusiast/mechanic and an expert at car deal negotiations. If you have any advice please let me know! I hope to get one by the New Year. Thanks!
