chosing the right car...

Im not 100% financially ready to buy a car but still looking for fun. What are some things I should think about to find the right car for med my son?

These things I already know and/or consider: gas milage, miles (if used), size, automatic, affordable, nothing to sporty cause insurance will be through the roof, and 4 door.

Any more to add? :)

  • I had a Corolla when I first had my son and it TORE MY BACK UP getting him in and out of it because I am decently tall. I ended up trading it in on my 4Runner because I couldn't take it anymore.

  • Make sure it's not coming up from the south from flooded area. I heard a lot of cars were sent up north, I don't know where you are or where your getting it from, just a thought.
