Question type: Shopping & Pricing

So, I am turning 16 soon, and am looking for a good used car. I came across a 1997 Pontiac Bonnevile SE w/ nearly 200K miles on it, for 2K. Should I go for it? Thanks.

No - 2k will buy you something better with a lot less miles

Well, it does look like it is in pretty good shape.

I'd first see what other options are available. how well the car is running, were you able to take a test drive? This question could help answer what repairs or repairs that are likely to be needed soon. if there is minimial rust/corrosion is on the vehicle especially underbody and underhood, it sounds like? Otherwise if everything checks out, you could enjoy lower insurance rate, decent size car/trunk space, decent fuel economy and it will not depreciate as much. Based on the picture, doesn't look bad. From what I know, the 3800 engines are easier to work on compared to V6 60 degree engines (i.e. 3.1L or 3.4L). Hopefully this help in your car buying decision, whichever one you choose, I wish you the best of luck

Well, thanks for all of your help. Much appreciated.
