So today I was accepted to my first choice of college which is something that I am very proud of. The question is, what will I do for a car?

At the school I’m attending, freshmen are allowed to have cars which is good. I don’t see any way I would attend this school without the freedom of a car. The only problem is I am not going to take the Merkur, and the Blazer is not exactly the best car for highway driving. By that I mean it’s utterly terrifying on account of the shot suspension and wayward steering.

So I’m going to need to buy a car, but what to get is a whole other question. See I need a car that’s reliable enough that I can get in it and drive a few hours back home every now and then that is comfortable to drive long distances. It also needs to be large enough to help transport things back and forth between home and my dorm meaning a Miata is sadly out of the question. I also don’t want anything catastrophically boring.

My budget? Somewhere in the neighborhood of $5,000, preferably under. I thank you for your wisdom and suggestions.

Here’s some cars far out of my price range for your time.
