So, I need to buy a new car. In the interest of saving money, I've been looking at used cars. All that matters to me is reliability and gas mileage. I found this particular car at a local Toyota dealership. Price seems in line with the KBB price for my area (San Diego).
Are there any particular issues with this age of car? The carfax report lists regular maintenance (every 6 months at the dealer), and only 1 owner. I would be paying cash, and this is approaching my spending limit.
Any advice? Family are too far away to help, and I don't know any friends who know much about cars here.
I don't need to purchase a car this minute. I've arranged my life so that the bus/walking/biking works for most things. My current car will die any day, and there is so much wrong with it, I'm not fixing it. I will be looking for jobs for summer, so a working car is essential by then.
