whats your budget? if you have some money to spare I would go with a rx7 :)


thats a horrible idea. if he doesnt even know how to pick out a car, he definitely wont be able to maintain a rotary engine.


That's true but what are the chances he even know how to do maintain a regular piston (not dissing out the person starting the topic). Some car owners can't even do those. And that's why they have a book called Haynes Manual or the FSM (Factory Service Manual) to teach you how to diagnose a problem and repair it by yourself. But do they do it? Nope, they rather go to a dealer and get ripped off to do all the easy stuff for them. Its time consuming to do it yourself and a takes man hours but its a learning experience. Also if your stuck theres also car forums and people in it that can help with your problems. As picking a car he was vague on his question. He didn't mention if he wanted a gas saver, sports car, or a luxury car.

You guys crack me up... you guys are retarded if you think you need $20,000+ to by a new car. Umm...nobody pays all cash up front. Its called payment plans.. 99.9% of the world does it. If you can afford the extra $400-500 a month than you can afford any car...


The only reason that they pay cash up front because they can lower the price sticker but I agree that the average person do monthly payments when getting a car and sometimes they...crap I forgot got whats it called...down payment I think (you pay some cash up front)?

yes, well a piston engine is easier to maintain. Im sure he does not realize the problems with the rotary engine such as how fast the get hot or how often they need lubrication and oil replaced. I don't think anyone who is inexperienced with driving cars in general should be driving anything more than an eco-box vehicle.

It's because they treat their cars like shit. With proper maintenance any car can last longer than 10k.

no car breaks down after 10,000 miles unless you either don't use a clutch in an manual or you over rev and blow the engine. you would have to be pretty stupid to do either of those (I've seen them both done many times) and with what a car costs, if it only lasted 10,000 miles they wouldnt be worth what you pay for them hence them not getting sales and going out of business. Hyundai is a Korean company, but like most car factories i believe it makes 'em in thailand. about 20+ years ago Hyundai was crap but now they actually have decent quality parts on their vehicles and its fine and the import ban set by the US to prevent rich war profiteers to give Korea any luxurious or sporty cars also kinda forced them to make better vehicles for the sake of the countrys rich people keeping the economy alive.
