Looking to purchase a new ride.....for under $10,000...
So far.....I've looked at:
- 90-91 Audi Coupe Quattro
- 90-93ish Mazda Miata...
Any others that have potential to look good..?
and potential for performance?
*sorry* don't really like the older generation VW's .....don't hate

Thx

95-99 maxima's are great reliable cars.
we have one of the initial batches of 95 (came out in jul 94) and its got 240,000kms. The powertrain is the best part of that car. Only thing we've replaced so far are the waterpump (last week) and CV joints, one at 160,000kms and one at about 220,000kms. Rotors at about 180,000kms.
Otherthan that, its been a dream car to own in terms of reliability. It has timing chain rather than timing belt (still going stock). We replaced the stock battery last year (2002) so it lasted us 8 years:)
its got the 3.0 VQ engine. the basis for today's 3.5L VQ found in 350Z, G35, Altima, New Maxima (and basically most of nissan's V6 engines nowdays, except xterra and the pickup truck)

CORRADO!!!!!
You can get G60's and the occasional VR6 for under 10K, they are a bit costly to maintain.
But should that not be your cup of styling tea...
-Porsche 944 (early years, pre turbo/limited slip)
-Civic CRX (late model, top of the line (si?)) put the extra cash into performance mods (engine, suspension, tires) and you'll have a street legal go-kart.
-Audi S4 if you want power and luxury... (on for sale up near me too, 9800 I think)

Older Maxima's are nice.....but a little too big for me..
Anyone know if Corrados have high insurance rates?

No more than a MK3 GTI I'd expect.

p.s. insurance rates aren't so bad if you find the right company
