Hi Scotty, I'm a student trying to buy a car to go to school. I'm not very familiar with cars and I don't know a lot of people in town(Houston). My school starts in 5 days so I'm in a little bit of time crunch. I have watched your videos on buying used cars, and best cars under 3000$. My budget is 2 - 2.5k and I've already looked at a bunch of cars in that range and I'm so lost. Here are 3 of my several options, 2005 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan Automatic - 1800$ 2005 Honda Accord LX (141k miles) - 2500$ 2003 Infiniti G35 6spd Manual (247k miles) - 3000$ All are in good condition apparently, but the Honda needs new front tires. The Honda guy from craigslist also asked me to meet him outside a convenience store's parking lot. I know you always recommend Toyota/Honda/Lexus, but could you please tell me which one I should go for? Also, could I possibly have you take a look at it? Thank you, Ben

Having your own car at school is very cool, but you should not forget about the learning process itself. You will have a cool car, but you must remember why you attend school. If you have difficulty learning throughout the school year, then you can visit this educational service https://samples.edusson.com/, where you will find many useful edu tools and a large number of essays samples.

Stay away from VW and Infiniti (Part of Nissan division). I like Honda and Toyota/Lexus myself. If you plan on doing work if necessary, then go to Toyota/Lexus. I find Honda very tight tolerante when it come to space and tighten of bolts. If no desire to do any repair then Honda and Toyota/Lexus.

Get a Scion. Its a toyota and very reliable. These cars scion toyota can go 300k to 400k miles with little to no problems. If there’s repair those cars are cheap and a lot of aftermarket parts.

Most of my knowledge of cars comes from watching Scotty over the past year, so if it interests you, keep watching and you’ll learn a lot. The live car talks are great too even if you don’t have a question. Heck, I don’t even have a car and I watch them because it interests me and there’s there’s a lot of information there squeezed into 30 minutes.

Get your tires from Discount Tire. I've been w/ D.T. since 1990. Always expert excellent service good prices. Watch Scotty's videos YouTube, learn how to DIY take care of that Accord. If automatic baby that transmission. Take care of it, it takes care of you.

In exact words, that Scotty would say, “That Volkswagen is just gonna fall apart, especially with an automatic.” If the Honda needs new front tires then get new front tires, it shouldn’t be too big of a deal; it’s not like replacing something major like a transmission. Also you might want to check out Scotty’s videos on buying a used car.
