I'm going to be buying a car in a few months. Here's the kicker I got a DUI a while back and I have to put an interlock on the car, fucking hate California. What should I buy?

Also car buying general.

What's an interlock?

Also, mid 90's Buicks are reliable, common as dirt and stone-age simple so repairs and labor is cheap as shit if something goes wrong, which isnt often. I bought a damn near pristine '94 Lesabre for under 2 grand. No rust or any damage, 138k miles on it at the time. has had no work done to it since I got it save for a vacuum hose I had to plug back in because I hit an opossum and my cruise control was going wonky because of it.

It's a super laid back, comfortable car. Loose yet intuitive steering. I can feel every pebble on the road through the steering wheel and pedals, which is nice. Makes me feel connected to the road. Just an easy, comfortable car to drive. 210 Horses when it was new, and it has enough grunt to spin the wheels at a light if I wanna look retarded. Whole car was tuned for comfort, practicality, and ease of use/maintainance. Though it does not accelerate... it advances.

They also function as a cloaking device. Look up pictures of '94 Lesabre. Chances are you see a few daily. But you just don't notice them. Cops don't notice them either, really. It is literally "A Car". So unless you are doing something horrifically wrong, expect to fly under the radar in these things. Especially if it is beige like mine.

An interlock is a device they attach to your car so it wont start if you have any alcohol in your system.

I was thinking an American land barge is the best car to install an interlock on.
Since I probably won't be driving that much anyway.

I'm mostly butthurt that the Suburban is on that list anywhere as recommended. I've known 7 people with those gas hogs and all of them have fucked up big time in less than 150k miles. Maybe they were all lemons but those things are gay as fuck. The Explorer isn't too nice either.

I'm also mildly butthurt that they suggest that you can even find a tercel. lol

Now that I look at it, I think this just a list of used cars you can "find." Not good options.

>Ford focus when no toyota or nissan is in the list of small cars

>Honda preludes are impossible to find without 20 shitty mods and a cab filled with taco bell wrappers.

>"Honda accord isn't fun to drive, is bad on gas." No mention of any of Honda's incessant check engine light from the turn of the century. (I've owned on of these, For a shitty cheap 4 door sedan, an Accord handles very well and you can get 35 mpg out of a 4cylinder one.) Good luck finding any without a check engine light though. Overdrive fucks up in them at about 200k too.

>A crown vic. lel

>Posing a guide to buy a hatchback

>A WRX. Yeah, same with the Prelude, good luck finding one that isn't beat to shit, abused and with 3k dollars of tacked on shit driving the price up 5k over what it should be.
>Integra has been voted best tuner of all time. AHAHAHAHAHAHHA, more like the most stolen of any vehicle.

>Wagons: Need a car that is extremely practical? Buy a turbo Volvo! lol Or a Subaru, from the timespan of when Subarus blew headgaskets from shitty engineering!

>Lincoln Towncar in luxury sedans. I mean, really? Granted, my experience was with one that was late 80's and not 90's like in the guide. You can get an Avalon which is just a Lexus 400 without the price as well. I've got no idea how a fucking fleetwood got on the list and an el-dorado and Avalon didn't.

>Of all the broken down 500 dollar cars, the only one on that list that I've seen commonly and isn't going to break before you get home was a Cavalier. Dodge Neon's are probably the worst thing ever besides a PT Cruiser.

>Trucks, oh boy... F-150's squat to the ground if you sit on the tailgate, completely useless for anything other than a grocery getter. The 300ci engine is good though. As are nearly all inline 6's. Tacomas are almost always a complete fucking ripoff now because their price is so insanely inflated. If you buy a Toyota Tacoma, it is going to be 7k dollars, have 240k miles, be beat to shit and lifted at least 8." They are good trucks but you won't find a deal on one. Tundras are also retardly expensive, almost always are found in shortbeds and can't hold anywhere near what a 3/4 ton or 1 ton American truck can and it has a sizable V8. I think they come in 5.8l? The Ford Ranger and 3/4-1ton options are the only reasonable things on that list. They don't even mention the Nissan Frontier. Which is basically a Tacoma but without as much of the price tag.

>4Runner has one $ sign but is easily the most expensive one listed. 4Runners are the same as Tacomas, beat to shit, taken off road and highly elevated pricetag with fucking gay ass mods. Good vehicle ruined by its owners. Jeep Cherokees fucking are ass. All Jeeps suck but that era of neutered soccer mom Jeeps are the worst. CR-V and Pathfinder are cool but small. Especially CR-v.

>Full size SUV's only have American vehicles listed. And of those, the shittiest ones. Ugh. Literally all of the listed options are shitty vehicles. Maybe the Yukon is acceptable. Maybe.

>Why the fuck would anyone buy a fucking Jeep Wrangler when you can get CJ-5's rebuilt? Suzuki Samari: Serious off-roading. AHAHAHAHAHAHA AGAIN! Fucking the only Suzuki that should be off road is a fucking RM. Like a Suzuki car is about the worst shit you can buy. Just, lol.

>Nissan Quest is dope. I'm surprised they didn't list a Metris. Given how stupid the maker of this shit was.

>Toyota Supra is cool. I'd almost be tempted to buy one after riding in one. But if I threw money away on vehicles I'd get a Nissan 350z or 300.


Yeah, this guide must have been made by teenagers from 4chimps that don't drive or only ride in their friends/parents cars. I guess that is why the van section is the least retarded and the truck section is the most retarded. 4channers probably have never had to do the kind of work where you need a good truck. Or had to pay for a fucking Toyota truck. lol

Also a Geo Metro is a Suzuki Swift rebadged (not the other way around) and that's a vehicle that is just fucking useless to exist. Buying an euro/japanese kei car with an automatic transmission and softer suspension... seriously. And that's on the list too. What the actual fuck is that.

Suzuki Cultus is a Suzuki Swift Sedan, my friend.

its not even the sedan. its the swift. there are hatchbacks too. we're talking about the same thing.
see?
The fucking Japanese flooded the whole world with their shit and called it different everywhere and equipped it with different taillights so people never know what to call them on the internet. Google Subaru Justy.
see???

I have to triple post straight from Wikipedia because this is next level shit.


The Suzuki Swift began in 1985 as a marketing and manufacturing rebadge of the Suzuki Cultus, a supermini (or subcompact) manufactured and marketed worldwide across three generations and four body configurations—three-door hatchback, four-door sedan, five-door hatchback and two-door convertible—and using the Suzuki G engine family.

The Swift was marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the Cultus and elsewhere as the Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Forsa, Suzuki Jazz, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy.

Also if anyone thinks the Swift is something like a Mitsubishi Colt, it's really not. In central and eastern europe i would say about 50% of all cars are Suzukis, mainly Swifts. They last forever without any maintenance, get 45mpg, are small, good for euro city roads. Build quality is extremely low, ride comfort is nonexistent, and all of them are neglected because they're so reliable you can run it with no oil for half a year without anything braking. They go for about $500 for a 10 year old model in my area. They are manual, the only way to go with these cars is manual, the auto tranny takes away all the little grunt it has. First and second gear are "SWIFT", after reaching 55mph it literally stops accelerating without flooring it. They're really bad cars, even talking about a cheap car they aren't very good. Only upside is they're small, cheap and last forever, which is pretty much all a lower class continental european city dweller needs. So don't imagine these like some JDM hot hatchback, the European version is the closest to the actual Japanese one, and they suck.
Just a little insight. The Geo/Chevy Metro edition is even worse in all aspects, softened suspension for american taste, auto trans, its horrible.

Dunno if Op still looking, but I drive an AFAYDCG but a V6 model and can say it has served me well. Going on 9 years now and though there have been some issues, 95% have been fixed by me and I am barely learning mechanics. Other issues were CAUSED by me TRYING to learn mechanics and electrical . My 2c.
I got a GM. Not sure about the Ford. As for their trucks though, both my brothers and a sister of mine have had Rangers. My sister beats that thing up on the road and it treats her like a queen.
A buddy of mine had a Cobalt and is took a dump on him several times.
