A great first car would be a used 4 door sedan due to safety and lower insurance rates. Toyota, Honda, Ford, to name a few. The fun is in the search. Make sure you have your mechanic look it over before purchase , that way you know if your looking for big repairs in the future. Good Luck!


A '90s Toyota Corolla with as low mileage as possible- if it has been cared for a little bit and looks good, it will run forever with just oil changes-
