    My dad was gonna give me a 5k car, but recently passed extremely suddenly, and as much as THAT blows me, me and my mom have gotten a large sum of life insurance, n im lookin to drop around 20 for a new car
    Id like to have a 4 door car, with a little bit of speed but not too much as it would turn my mom away
    I like stuff like the new Pontiac GP, but only the cheapest model would appeal to my moms fear of me speeding and stuff
    So im lookin at IMPORT AND AMERICAN cars for 4-door, little bit'a speed, n aite gas mileage
    Any ideas guys? Ive got a couple, but seein what is suggested n what I may have overlooked

    And im not lookin to buy a used car n get aftermarket this n aftermarket that
    This is the last car purchase ima do for a long time so I want a brand new car that I know will last long as i take care of it

    dodge is a terrible choice..... you need to get that idea right the fuck out of your head.


    there's a ton of nice cars out there for 20k... it depends on what you fucking want... you expect us to just list off cars that sell for 20k.. there's thousands. new/used/luxury/sport/suv.. you need to narrow it down.


    for 20k you could likely find a nice ass full equipt GTP.. which will A) be more of family type car (so good for insurance and gas and yet still have high performance/speed)

    you can go the luxury route... any Infinity or Lexus.. the IS300's are right around that price and that'd be new.

    First post by the topic starter concludes that:

    Snikka, You don't read well, or just don't care to read....

    Any Infiniti or Lexus.. around 20... where do you live? Since he lives in the DC metropolitian area, that shit is not likely and neither is that price anywhere else in this country.


    Anyway to the topic..

    Nissan Altima
    Maxima
    Saab 9-3 w/ GM discount.
    Mazda 6

    lol..what the fuck are you looking for then. There really isn't that many good cars for 20g's. Hell save 2g's and get a 2 door coupe Scion tC. Cheap insurance, cheap payments, and Toyota reliability. I mean what do you really want. If you are looking at teh cars I already suggested then this shit isn't that hard. You should easily be able to pick a car out of that group.

    well the only help I need now
    is what does the scion exhaust sound like? their exhaust kit you can add on when customizing your ride on the website? if it sounds like all these damn fart cans, which, based on scion commercials, i feel it does, then ill pass, but if not, ill go for it
    and last thing before i even run down to test drive one....will i fit? im 6'2 lol

    it's too broad.. there's a ton of cars out there, was my point.

    I could go to Scottsdale Lexus RIGHT NOW and find a IS300 for around 22-23k and get it down to 20k.. gauranteed... why you acting like it's so impossible.

    and you gotta be out of your mind saying I30/35's are shit.. I know a kid with a newer one right now.. it's reliable and luxury as fuck..

    you trying to get him onto some fucking gay ass cars... Scion TC??? wtf is that shit... at least suggest he spends 20k on somthing decent..

    You can get a BRAND NEW Lexus IS300 for 22-23...lol.. fuck it give me the number to that dealership and I will call my fucking self.

    As for the tC, it is cheap and affordable and under 20, and guess what it made more sense than that non sense you were talking about. HE said 20g's... not like 28 and shit, and new. Shit I saved him 3g's and give him a reliable car. Besides, I gave him 4 cars before that, that were better choices and I still think those are the best choices for his price range.

    Yes I30's aren't anything... they had no class to compete in, they were subpar on terms of bang for the buck and was wiped out with a outdated and ugly design.

    You have yet to name shit that is at that price NEW.. keyword.

    You ever rode in a new one?


    the available engines on 2005/2006 are:

    200-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
    260-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
    303-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 (GTP)


    so I was off... someone said 350 to me one time, so I researched it... they ride real nice man.. I believe at the time (about 2 years ago) he got a 2003 for a little over 20 on a GTP.. rides great...


    call Scottsdale Lexus, it's the largest lexus dealership here in Arizona... why would I fucking lie?? I had a Lexus ES300 and went there routinely for shit.

    go look around cars.com or autotrader and go test-drive some cars


    maybe you will like a used car cause you can get a nicer model instead of a NEW car that's right in your price range.


    it's suspect that you have 20 grand to spend and can't figure this out for yourself.

    GTP... GTP

    Now I know you meant GXP, sorry if you don't state the right trim, then I am not knowing what you are talking about. The new GT is the old GTP etc etc... I really hate Pontiac, so I never recommend them. I haven't seen one I liked, and when I test drove one about a year and a half ago, the car died on me during the test drive. I guess God was trying to tell me something. So ever since then no more Pontiacs.

    But anyway... I still have to see this NEW Is300 for 23g's. That is about 5 grand under invoice..lol.. I will call today then.

    GTX's are nice... GTO's are not what I meant.. my fault.


    probably not NEW like a 2005/06 IS300.. But I'm sure I've seen IS300's for 20-23k with real real low mileage.. fuck it.

    tigre WAS right, you DO suck at reading posts
    my dad passed away and we got around 120 g's for life insurance
    were saving A LOT for my college, and i have 20 for a car so just figured id ask
    the only thing tigre named i hadnt already looked at was the tC and to be truthful it is worth lookin at
    and then RECOMMEND i look at used cars cuz that was the prices you were speakin on
    THEN recommend the highest horsepower model of a car....which is damn sure over 20
    lol, you have yet to make ONE suggestion that makes much sense based on what I asked
