Hondas in general are good, reliable cars. It should serve you well.Nissans are also pretty good, but I would avoid anything with too much power in it (to keep your insurance premiums down, of course). A Sentra or perhaps a Maxima.A nice little car is also the Hyundai Sonata. My parents have a 2007 model. I love that little car and how it drives. Next car I get, I'm getting a Sonata.If you want to stick with something American, try a Ford Taurus or a Mercury Sable (they're the same car).Hope that helps!Cheers!© 2008 SinisterMatt.

ok any honda is a great car my 1st car under my name was a 96 honda civic lx sedan. i had several cars before my license but the car i first bought was that civic. they are really reliable i would have also gotten an accord if i had found one they are really nice. but honda in general is a really good company.nissan and toyota are also good cars to look into but the parts will come out alittle mroe pricey if something were to ever happen to it. and dont think i mean by just it breaking down or that you might be a bad driver because you have to remember you can be the best driver in the world but the person infront of you to your side or behind you might be the worst driver in the world and might hit you. but in nissan the sentra is nice toyota i like the camry for its handleing and its mpg. those cars dont waste to much gas and the 4 door models look very clean. american you can get an escort and not really worry to much about body damage because those things are built like brick walls. if someone hits you its like hitting a hummer. but again the engine parts are pretty pricey.the dodge neon is also a really reliable and cheap car to get. cheap as in its not hard to maintain it.

Hondas are really good cars. they're good on gas, 30-40 highway, and 28-34 city. They are pretty expensive when you need maintnence, like tire rotations, oil change, and getting new things for it. Like Cd playersother cars i recommend include- 2001 nissan altima, 2001 honda accord, 2001 toyota camry, 2001 toyota corolla, and 2001 Nissan sentra.

Yes they are.4 door is cheaper on insurance than 2 door.Honda Civic is 2nd most reliable car in the world. The Honda Accord being number one.It is cheap to maintain. Its engine could take a beating. It has a high revving lively engine.Fun to drive.Best resale value.Great on gas. Uses regular gas.Other great idea are Mazda Protege, Honda Accord, or Nissan Sentra.

it depends what you want the car for if its a 4 door car than its lower on insurance if you are goign to make it look like a racing car or even race with it a 2 door car is better but the insurance its going to cost more.. honda cars are nice and they look nicer when you put body kits on them so its up to you. but honda cars are cars that last.
