    So this is a lil out of your price range but I'm happy enough with the car to suggest it anyways and say you'll save more than enough money to make it worth the higher price tag

    I drive a 2010 Mazda 3 and delivered pizza for years / made tons of trips outta state. I've owned it since it was brand new in like 2011 and have over 160k miles on it and it still runs perfectly. You can find a used one for $5-6k based on what I'm seeing online (dealership offered me $3k for mine) and the car's great if you're looking for one that's going to last.

    Unfortunately it's the only car I've ever bought so I don't have any cheaper suggestions for you, but good luck man. Don't rush the decision.

    Recommending a Mazda b3000 5speed manual. It was my first truck, and you can buy one for around 2 grand. They run like a champ and last forever. Good work truck too

    EDIT: also you'll probably want your first car to be manual transmission so you know how to drive pretty much anything so it's a major plus (excluding semis and work trucks 6 speed+)

    My suggestion is to get help from a dealership that you might know and go to auction. there are many good cars with your price range you want.if you don't know anyone that is a dealership then you going to pay up to $500 to a dealership since for auction you gotta get a licence.

    Get a 2000-2004 Corolla, Civic, or Accord. It'll be cheap and great gas mileage while also being extremely reliable.

    I would stay away from 01-05 civics, they are always cheap for a reason. Especially the automatic ones.


    but a civic would be a good choice in general though
