View Full Version : I'm searching small car with average power for low cost.
01-26-2001, 06:03 PM
As I'm going to buy my first car in a couple of months I thought which and what type should it be? But unfortunately my restrictions are quite havy.
max price: 2000 US$:(
max displacement: 2.0l (gas is very expensive 1/4 gallon about 1 US$):mad:
min 100-130hp:D (depends on weight)
Nevertheless it should have appropriate power. But it doesn't mather how much mileage is on it as long it drives properly (maybe up to 90000miles) 'cause I'll drive it only for about 18 months. I know it's difficult cause of the restrictions but more minds can find more solutions and I don't want to miss one.
Thanx folks for ya help:)

Honda CRX, 1st or second gen, or Toyota MR-2, 1st gen.

I would never in my life drive a CRX I simply detest its shape and overall look. MR2 was also in my mind, a friend of mine got one and he sad it could use more power cause it's kind a weak for his weight and also isn't that responsive when rev.

You in swiss? How about some Peugeot, those are quite goos for econobox with decent speed....

Yes, I thought about that too but the point is that I only could afford a 205 and it's very difficult to find one of the good 130hp 1.9 GTIs in my price range. Nevetheless it's one of the most realistic options I have, except I could find a CitroŽn ZX 2.0 16V but the cost mostly twice what I want to pay:(

How about an Astra of some kind?

Astra would be nice to but cost US$ 5000+.
I also thought about a Renault R5 GT Turbo (I could increase the boost:D)

Astras gave been around for years. I'm sure there would be one in your price range. A MK2, the best looking model.

I checked it, I couldn't find an Astra 2.0 16V for under US$ 5k:(

Another option would be to find a 2nd gen. RX-7 ('88/'89) but it's kind of risky 'cause I don't know how the preowner treated the car which is very important as it's a rotary and a Turbo engine which both need special attention.
