Which car would you choose?

1996 Chevy Camaro RS Coupe with 88k miles for $3000 Manual 5-speed but will need all new tires, the ABS light is on, and the rear blinkers don't work, however the hazards all work. Ceiling is mega sagging.

or

2002 Chevy Cavalier Sport Automatic 4-speed with 104k miles for $3500 but will eventually need a catalytic converter and the rear driver side window motor is faulty. Owner also mentioned that the ABS light will pop on occasionally but goes away after a few seconds. Happens every few weeks.

Having driven both I feel more comfortable in the Cavalier but that might be because I am not used to being so low to the ground in the Camaro. Also, the Camaro is a rear wheel drive car. Something else I am not fond of.

Those are the asking prices so I will obviously offer less.

I'd offer $2000(maybe, the milage is too low for me not wonder why) for the Camaro or $2400 for the Cavalier. And probably move on.

I have no problem walking away. Thats why I posted here, to get opinions. Kind of surprised to see more support for the Camaro to be honest.

I know but I really thought there would be more support for the Cav. My mistake.

Unfortunately, these are the best two cars I have found in 2 months of looking.

The camaro will have a solid drive train but will have Ricky tack things go wrong. The cavalier will have everything go wrong. Cavalier is an entry level vehicle. Camaro is not

Feeling like you have to make a purchase on a complete pile of shit must be a really uneasy feeling.

Stop what you're doing right now if those are the two best cars you've found in 2 months of looking.

PM Me your budget, your area, the mileage you're willing to go for a car, the needs and wants of the future car, and for whom the car is for. I'll find you something better in literally less than 15 minutes, assuming I'm online when I receiver the PM.

Right now you've got your wallet in hand, outstretched for someone to come take you and run away with your hard earned cash, and neither of those two are reasonable options.

No, that camaro is not a solid drivetrain, its like an automatic and that transmission is shit, that motor is shit, and like all GM cars prior to the mid 2000's, is a pile of plastic shit. Everything plastic in the interior will break, everything electrical will somehow find a problem, and you'll be left there with your dick in hand calling guys to come pick your shitbox up for 200-300 bucks for scrap.

Go look on Craigslist in Manhattan, Lawrence before the end of college spring term. I found both my daughters nice cars for under 3K from students not wanting to take their vehicle with them....

Cavalier is a very reliable car. Also, if you need parts there are so many of them in the junkyard it's easy to find cheap replacement parts.

Doesn't help that my son is really wanting the Camaro now.

My mistake. I should never have taken him on that test drive with me.

Its a hard decision to make now.

If you don't buy it, he'll be upset.

If you do buy it, I promise your wallet will be upset within the year lol.

not my wallet. His. he is paying for it.

Cavalier is off the table. Owner just texted me he had another offer and I can make an offer if I want. Told him to accept the other parties offer.

Called his bluff.


EDIT

Yep, he is upset that we are telling him to look at more cars before settling on the Camaro. Going to be a battle now.

Well, if it was my son and his own money, I'd let him buy it with the understanding he's not to come crying to me every time the damn thing breaks, and not to come crying to me that he can't get to work because there's an inch of snow on the ground.

And while Exotor is the first person I've heard speak ill of that 3800 engine, I am not emotionally invested enough in this to get into a internet war over it. But it wouldn't be an engine I would be uncomfortable purchasing.

My biggest problem is a car like that has more than likely been hooned a time or two or three thousand. Just because it doesn't have a V8 doesn't mean it hasn't been driven like it does, especially with that manual trans. HAY GUYS CHECK OUT TEH SECOND GEAR SCRATCH!!!

So yeah, that, along with the age, shit's gonna break. If he's not willing to get his hands dirty and learn a thing or two about fixing your car yourself, it's not the car for him.
