You spend 1000 on it but youll have to spend alot more to repair. You still need insurance and gas and other stuff too. Just get a 4000 to 6000 car if you can that is Japanese

But if i bought a 40004-6000 car, i woudl still have to pay insurance and gas, so im sayign that assuming it needs no repair, is this a good car?
