As much as I enjoy my public transportation exploits, I’m hoping to buy a car as soon as I can get some money together. For the past 8 or so years of my life, I mostly relied on the NYC subway system to get around, so I don’t have a clue how to buy a car.
What’s the cheapest possible used car I can buy that might actually hold together and get me around for a while? (I dream of one day owning a shiny silver hybrid, but at the moment, I’d be happy with anything that can get me from place to place.)
Where does one buy a car like that in LA?
Any tips on what I should avoid, and how to be sure I’m not buying a total piece of junk?
What should my vanity plate say? (just kidding… at least for now)
