Default What's up Guys

I'm comin over from OCN. I just got my drivers license around 2-3 weeks ago. I've been driving a '90 Geo Prism that's in HORRIBLE shape. It drives,(below 55), leaks oil/gas. And I'm in need of something new. So I figured I'd come here and see if you guys had any suggestions? Once I get my own car I plan on doing a lot of learning about engines/how a car works.


Thanks!

Thanks. Any recommendations for a first car? Or perhaps a recommendation on where to place a thread for that sort of thing?

Welcome to CFN!

For a car recommendation you're going to have to give us some rough ideas as to what you would like in a vehicle. For a first car I would recommend at least buying something easy to maintain like a honda civic or toyota camry/corolla.

General Automotive Discussion would be the place for that.
