So, my “summary of payments” showed up from my car insurance and it looks like they’re only going to cover a small portion of my hospital and follow up visits from my accident.

Needless to say, this slashes my budget considerably.

So if I’m looking at new cars, less than $18k, probably with a manual (since that’s the only way I’m gonna be able to keep up with traffic), what should I be checking out? Honda Fit looks okay, but the CVT blows, and the Manual leaves you at 4000RPM at 80MPH, which will likely drive me to kill myself.


Only must have is cruise control. I’d like something comfortable, but at this point even that’s out the window.

Here’s a race car.
