How much should a first car cost? What car should I get?

how much did the first car cost

I'm 17 years old and will soon be a high school senior. I've gotten my license months ago and I always had to use my mom's car (a 2009 honda civic). Well, I can't always borrow it because we got very different schedules and she needs it for work & other things. My mom pays for my insurance but she. show more I'm 17 years old and will soon be a high school senior. I've gotten my license months ago and I always had to use my mom's car (a 2009 honda civic).

So. under a high school students budget, how much should a first car

cost? How much did you pay for your first car (say it only if its recent, since prices are more inflated now and I need something accurate).

I have around $2000 saved in my bank account right now. Should I save a little more for a better car? I dont have a job. It's hard getting a job where I live because they would rather hire someone 18+. On my job interviews, the managers wont hire me because of school & scheduling issues. So. the only means of my income is through selling my stuff on ebay and amazon and keeping food money from my only allowance.

Also, what's a good, reliable car for a student? I'm thinking of a VW Beetle or a Mitsubishi eclipse. Any other suggestions? And, Im only thinking of buying a car around my area through Craigslist and not from car dealerships.
