Re: Realistic/Reasonable First Car Budget
My first ever car only cost me $1000, a super reliable 1981 Toyota Corolla! Fuel was cheap as - I don't recommend getting a Falcon as unless you have a good job, you dont want to spend your whole pay to move the car out of the driveway. While it's exciting to get a car and all, you still need money to be able to do things with the car and the people you take out.
Not to mention reliability, but I won't go there. Any car could be unreliable, but some cars are better than others. Ongoing costs will also be cheaper on a smaller car, like tyres, brakes, pretty much anything. If you are a one eyed Falcon fan and only want a V8, then expect to pay for it. Literally. When I got my first car, it was a real privelege to just have a car!

How much boost?
