So, I terrified of motorbikes and I've moved to a place far from any bus stops. I'm thinking it's time to invest in a car. Doesn't matter if it's a manual. I've got about $5000 to spend, located in Brisbane, Aus. I've got good friends who know their cars, so I'm pretty good on the negotiating front. However, thought I'd ask the hivemind to be safe. So I have a few key questions.
1) What would you recommend as a first car? Make/model/approx. age/milage?
2) What do I look out for? What should be sending out alarm bells?
3) What are my rights?
4) Any other top tips?
