    You can get a good car (honda, nissan, or toyota) for a G but it will be around 10 yo. I say beg for another 200 loan from your peeps and get another 200 yourself. and you can get a Accord or something like that which will last you another 10 years, if you need it to. Do not finance a car at 17 unless your peeples are fiflty rich cause you will be screwed one way or another

    ^depends on the peak wattage of your subs you want... i have 2 10inch JL Audio subs and a 1200 watt amp and the subs are pushing 600 watts a piece... :)

    I'm probably gonna get deployed overseas soon. They give you a shitload of money when you're deployed to a high-risk area, so when I get back I'll have a shitload of money in the bank (provided I live, of course). I was thinking of going with either a Jeep Grand Cherokee for looks, functionality and long-lastingness, or an 02-03 Dodge Stratus R/T for . . . yeah, cause I like it. Keep in mind I'm a college student, I make trips often (usually to home an hour away or to D.C. 3 hours away), and I love banging sound systems more than I love not being able to hear my voice above the engine noise. Stratus, Cherokee, or something else altogether?

    Something else.... Stratus R/T isn't worth a penny. The Cherokee is nice and what not...but dated styling, ....just plain needs a complete redesign, engine, and body.

    If I were you i would look into a nice import. For that price range i would rather get a RSX-S or a Accord Coupe.

    For the cherokee.. i would say a new 4 runner, or something along those lines.

    when u lease a car you arent paying for the car, you are paying for the interest. if you are one of the peoples that like to customize then buy, otherwise lease. and with leasing your payments will always be lower then buying

    I have an old car and the paints looking not too great.. Someones told me that the paint is oxidized and thats why its faded like it is.. I don't want a new paint job, but I've been told that it can be fixed without doing that.. Would I just need a good wax job or would it involve detailing? Approximately how much am I looking at money wise to get that done? Thanks for any help.

    Damn there is mad ppl in VA. Anyway, how old is your ride. If it is about 12 yrs old, and the paint does have that look, most likely you will need a respray. PPl that take care of their car thought the years would not be experiencing the problem you are having. If you want to get the car to shine again, you might need a rotary buffer and some good wax like P21S wax or some Klasse sealant wax. But rotary buffers in the hand of a novice is like crayons in a white room with a 3 yr old...tragedy. So if you did want to do this yourself, you will HAVE to buy a orbital buffer, and some great paint sealant like Klasse. Both can be bought online, and also, if you do detail this car, you will need a GOOOD detailer. I have a person in Northern VA that does damn good work. The only thing is depending on the condition of the paint, it could cost you a pretty penny. Any other ?'s

    *thinks* Twelve years old.. That would be nice, but no.. lol My car is 23 years old now. *hangs head* I knew it would cost me a lot.. dangit! :tongue: And I wouldn't dare try it myself I'd probably break something trying.

    Dizzzam, your car is as old as me.. LMAO. Oh shit it might be time for a respray. Out of curiosity what car is this? If you were close enough I would probably do the detailing for you....but with a 23 yr old car, that my be pushing past my limits.
