I just finished up college recently & will be buying my first new car on my own....... I pretty much know I want to go w/ some type of Honda b/c of the reliability/resale, etc.... I have about $7-8k for a down payment. I only want new b/c of warranty & don't want to deal w/ any issues from a used car. Cars I'm thinking of: Honda Civic Coupe LX/EX 5spd $17-$18k Honda Civic Si 6spd $21k Honda Accord Coupe 5spd $23k Acura TSX 6spd $28k (but i could get a deal on one b/c I own a GM at an Acura dealer) The price gap is big, but those are what I'm looking at. color would be white, black or silver.
