Default Looking for a car! Please help :-)

Happy New Year everyone. Im looking for a car, one that is reliable and can get from A - B, preferable an opal or starlet but i am flexible. Max $4000, so if anyone know of anywhere or anyone I can talk to, please let me know. Thank you :-)

$4,000 USD, I suppose???

Starlets are sought after for their rally car conversions, so that might be out at that price point.

At that price point, you're looking at last century... good luck

we were looking back at Xmas and found some good ones parked outside car mechanic workshops, always friendly guys and the cars were tidy and well maintained. Maybe worth just driving around some neighbourhoods and looking ... good luck.

Hi everyone,

Just to update you on my car situation. I brought one yesterday, its a 1999 Suzuki Alto in almost perfect condition. 2 previous lady owners/drivers and imacculate. The lady that had it was leaving the island and had a great heart and didnt really want anything for it, but I gave her $3500Bds. So never say never about getting a car for within your budget, i didnt think it would happen and it did and ill treat it just as good as she did.

Thank you everyone for all your tips!

I was looking and looking and was only finding car not even worth looking at and then a friend from work text me saying she just drove passed a little green car for sale, but not sure how much. When i called the lady was really nice and lived round the corner from me in st james, said she had only put the sign up an hour ago. Must be fate . Im really happy with my new road runner.
