Windows 7: First Car

First Car

I've managed to find a car which I can make monthly payments (and afford) on for my first car. It just so happens that I can afford my favorite car also...

~$5000

1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL
5 speed standard transmission
Front-wheel drive
3.0L V6

What it looks like:

I just hope that it doesn't become too much of a police magnet in my area and that insurance won't cost too much more than a more conventional car would. It is from a dealer.

I'll likely pay $500 per month for 10 months. With my current situation, I am not paying any bills, and finding a job in my area for me has been quite easy the past two summers.

Call the insurance company and give them the VIN, they can tell you exactly what it is going to cost.

Police are nothing to worry about.
Just don't do anything wrong.

Your insurance should not be high with the 3.0L engine. It is these big ones that really cost. I had a Mustang a few years ago with a 3.7L and the insurance was the normal rate.

Do young drivers not get penalised on insurance in the US? In the UK, if I bought the car OP is wanting, I would have been paying close to, if not, £2,000 a year for a car with something like a 3.0L engine.

My friend had one of those (actually like 2-3 one w/turbo, that was a trip). It'll move, that's for sure. Insurance might be a little high, but it'll go down over time if you don't have any accidents.

Im jealous, I admit as my first/current car is a beat up 94 accord w/ 200K+ miles. lol.

have fun, not to much though.

I was going to echo Harry's thoughts with regards the insurance especially with you being so young and probably only just passed your test, mind you I don't know what the position is in the States when it comes to age and driving.

@ holo88 I've just noticed, why are you showing the FNG badge in your sig when you haven't reached 2,000 posts yet ?

Yes. And with that, the fact that it's ONLY a 3.0 means little. They still consider it a "sports" car with a V6! Insurance is going to love him (and worry at the same time)
