My freidn has had one and has had lots of problems its rare they run that long..I sugest a honda civic or I had a pontiac bonneville that was exellent and i drove it from its 60K mark to its dieing day at 278,000 miles with just normal maintanace and it was a 91 Pontiac Bonneville SSE Its was really nice to!
easy. Tell him to get a S13 240sx. He should easily be able to find a 93 in good condition for 2000 or less. My roommate has one, and that car owns. RWD, nice motor, nissan, and will run forever. He puts a bunch of miles on his. It currently has well over 200k, and still runs like a CHAMP! AND, he beats the crap out of it on a daily basis. Nissans last forever. As a matter of fact, the motor on my 92 pathfinder still sounds better than the motor on my 01 focus! lol
