Yeah, of course, that would be ideal. But alas, it isn't a perfect world .

Really?? Hmmm...do you have full or PL/PD? I will definatly have to have a comparison drawn up. I would really like a GP but I thought it would be significant insurance wise.

I was originally going to get a Saturn SC2 (don't kill me people)...now THAT is a small car. I will actually be using the car that I purchase as a highway car because I will be traveling a lot going from school and back. I figure if I stay as big as a GA or Alero, I should be okay.
I have full coverage and I use AAA insurance. I guess you would just have to give your insurance company a call and get a quote.

Keep the bonnie for college. I got mine for the room over the GA and GP.

But a GP would be my recomendation. Honestly i wouldn't go smaller if you're moving from home to school a lot.

I've already had a ton of stuff packed in the GP for school. I can fit quite a bit. It has SLIGHTLY less room than a Bonneville. The trunk is pretty big.

Well i guess the only GP'* i was able to afford woulda been 96 or older.

Why do you need a "newer" car? It'* college, you're gonna want all the money you can get!!

Ummm...good question. Honestly, I don't have a good answer. I just want something that isn't ten years old, and since I can afford something (well, college considered, maybe I really can't) I want to see what I can find. (That isn't meant as bratty as it sounds).

Oh there'* nothing wrong with wanting a new car. There are a lot of good choices out there too. For a small econobox the Mazda 3 is damn near perfect, heck it'* even got good performance, and all the features of mazda'* bigger cars, but in a small package. Getting a 200-250/mo payment is doable i bet. If i had the money i'd just save up for some sort of future housing down payment, or invest it.

Besides, we all know the best cars were built before '73

Oh, Mazdas, don't even get me started thinking about those. I would very much consider a Mazda if one meandered across my path. If you get the right one, I think it'd run forever.
