Help with choosing a first car?

Question type: General

I'm looking for a car with safety, reliability, good gas mileage, and that won't cost an
insane amount for insurance. It would be helpful if I could find a car that isn't too much to
repair if something does go wrong.  A lot of people have told me older Accord's or a Civic
would be good. My price range isn't very good though, 1,000. At most, 1,250. Any
suggestions?

The Toyota Corollas from the '90s are amazing cars that are cute, fun to drive, good on gas, and seem to last forever- find one from the original owner with low miles and you are golden- but a lot of people know about these Corollas and are out there hunting, too

If you like trucks, a Chevy S10 would be a good choice. They're very long lasting. My '03 has 276,900 miles on it. Runs like a champ. Was a NAPA delivery vehicle so it didn't have an easy life either. I've seen S10s go past 300,000 miles with very few problems. HTH. -Jim
