If it was me, I would then spend $10K and not have any payments. :)

My suggestions for a new car-

Base Mini Cooper
Scion (pick one)
Matrix
Tacoma
Mazda 3?

Or a used BMW 325 series. Used Supra. Used MR2. For $10k you can get a nice car.

even though they're V6, they're slower than celica's. that's just SAD.

okay if i didn't get that tiburon, i'd love a bmw or a supra... can i even find a nice supra for 10k? Twin turbo? let me know what to expect in that area. i've always wanted a supra...all the sick ones are so expensive though. and still open for other suggestions.

The Korean car makers are currently where the Japanese car makers were 20-25 years ago. Below average quality with below average prices. However, the Koreans have an even crazier work ethic than the Japanese. Currently, I wouldn't touch a Korean car with a 10 foot pole. But my prediction is that in 10 years, the Korean cars will be the ones to have.

I was not suggesting that the cars I listed can be had for $10k. Those cars are the ones I would suggest for your $20k budget.

I was just making the point, because I do not believe in debt, that you can also find nice cars for $10K. Then you will have more money every month to do stuff, like mods and maintain the car.

oh well the US probely destroyed all the buildings made by my dad.. like if he would give a shiet.. haha.. oh one interesting thing though he told me about saddam.. he always built bomb shelters in every building in the city.. it was nuts he said.. lol

well thats my interesting story.. but still.. he wouldnt buy anything made by hyundai.. he said its a joke

I don't have anything against the Tibys. I like the way they look (personally) and they drive pretty nice. They're front wheel drive, but if that's okay with you than I'd say go for it. Don't let these guys discourage you from what you really want. After all, it's about you, not them.
