    Ok Car To Start Off With. — It's your basic family sedan. Nothing really exciting. Has some power cause of its 3.0L V6. Mildly fun to drive fast. Not much else to say. I still use this as my daily driver when the weather isn't nice enough to take out my 3000GT.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good first car for a 16 year old.

    Cons: It's a grandma car.

    Good Car My First Car And A Damn Good One — Good car handles nice, decently fast and gets one from point A to point B. It hasn't needed repairs really just the usual on a 14 year old car and has minimal rust and a very good interior. Gets about a little over 30 mpg on the highway and runs pretty nice. Fun to drive...sometimes, Practical to drive yes.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gets me from A to B

    Cons: avoid non taken care of ones

    Do Not Buy — The worst car I have ever owned. Do not ever buy one of these cars. (with the 150 hp engine! It is just under powered for the size of the car.) It is not fun to drive, and reaction time is bad. (Just ask Jacob)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Cons: bad transmittion problems

    1996 Mercury Sable — very reliable, good quality, somewhat slower acceleration but decent power with a V6, bigger sedan, very safe vehicle, sucks on gas but has a fairly low cost for insurance and repairs, sometimes its fun to drive if im in the mood to drive it. but overall, its a great first car for anyone

    Pros: safe, reliable, low maintenance costs

    Cons: not too great on gas

    Looks Like A Big Jelly Bean — Kickass daily driver. The Vulcan engine will outlast the frame of this car. Easy to get 300k+ on one engine. Duratec engine faster but not as reliable.

    Pros: 19-22mpg city 30mpg highway at 80mph+, vulcan engine kickass, good accel for a grandma car, huge trunk, cops don't pay attention to it

    Cons: kinda ugly, AX4S trans is junk

    Merc Sable — Bought this thing used with low miles but massive cigarette damage! It looks like DJ Jazzy Trevor got Grandma's car and commenced to wrecking it! But, the driveline has been mostly replaced and it runs and drives well. Get's Kevin and his Krue around as needed. 8/10 - Went in for Tires and Brakes aBack in and found a few surprises. Back in action and running well.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Runs strong and drives straight

    Cons: Massive cigarette damage
