Default First car help

I am new here, so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct section.

I am looking to get a first car. I have about 5000 MAX to spend and have been looking at the mitsubishi eclipse.
It's 4000$ and has 117k miles

Body Style Hatchback

Interior Color Black

The other one is this one

A little more than wanting to pay but very low mileage and great carfax info.

Either one looks good, I'd take the one with 117k personally, as those 3.0 mitsu engines are very reliable. If I were you I'd look for a manual though, much more fun

Kinda sounds like the decision has already been made with you price point. I doubt they would come down $1500 even if you showed up with cash. Especially considering that it does actually book at $6500
