This thread is going to be about as exciting as eating celery sticks while watching elderly people do calisthenics. Sorry in advance.
Its time for a new car. Actually, I'm going for a recent used car, 2006-ish. My company will pay up to $600 USD a month for car payments and insurance.
Driving in this country is absolutely terrifying at times. The stereotype about Asian drivers...well...its often true. An elderly Japanese woman driving a car is every bit as dangerous as a partially sedated and very confused rhino thundering towards you. Ideally, I would like a car that a.) allows me not to die and b.) has good reliability and c.) looks decent.
I kind of like the 2006 Volvo S60.
It would probably set me back 350 a month, allowing me to pocket the rest of the cash.
Any other recommendations for safe, reliable cars?
