well I'm buying a car for the sole reason of getting to work and back, i don't live that far from work about 20-25km both ways. The jeep is $2000 or best offer, so Im planning to offer 1300 and go from there, hopefully I can get it for around 1500-1600. It's got 236km on it's odometer so Im guessing its got about 2-3 years left on it, after that I'll be able to afford a new/newer car, but for now I just want something to get to work and back.
Taking the transit is a bitch especially during winter, and gas does not really worry me cuz i don't really go out that much anymore and when I do it's usually to just go out with the girlfriend.
Never really been a fan of small cars, I especially hate those little honda civic hatchbacks, so SUV is the way to go for me. My uncle is a mechanic and Ill be taking him with me to check out the car, so Ill know if it's a junk or not.
