it's about the time i need to get a car. i might have an internship coming up soon, and i need a way to get home for the holidays that doesn't involve a $300 plane ticket.

i have a small budget, my problem is that most cars that fit within that budget are waayyyy to small. i'm a tall guy (6' 5", about 2 meters, and still growing) and almost all legs. i need a car that i can fit in, and those are almost all luxury cars. most of the cars i am looking at that are recently priced are hardly ever found in used car lots.
  • chevy impala
  • chevy camero
  • honda accord
  • dodge charger
  • toyota camry


my very few requirements are these:
  • >250 HP
  • leg room
  • >25 mpg



any ideas?

Well my uncle managed to comfortable drive a volkswagen golf (now my car) for 6 years. And he's 6'6". So perhaps a smaller car could be workable. Just a suggestion.

I think you should look around craigslist in your area and see what you can find. I'm not sure if you'll find those cars for very cheap.

1.85m tall and a total bitch about confort and I know from experience that German/West-European cars offer more space for your legs. Why? Because the germans (and Dutch) we are taller. Like FUBAR said, Volvo is a nice choice. They are save and 'glide' over the road insead off drive on it (no bumps, whoohoo).
Also do NOT get a Suzuki Alto like my sis, I have to keep my head low otherwise I bump it against the roof -.-

I'm 1,94 m myself and never had problems with normal cars, you really don't need a luxury car iMHO.

I'm driving a Toyota right now and no problems with it. Also take into account the fuel consumption on a big car.

Lol, get a moped. They're cheap and they get ~100 miles per gallon.
Not terribly fast, though, so you can't use 'em on the highway.

Just don't get an 05-06 one I believe. Those ones have serious transmission issues and they have a 60,000 mile powertrain warranty.

I'm 6'2 and I feel your pain adam. I have trouble driving a Toyota highlander and that's supposed to a big car. The Acura is even worse.

yeah, but they're about $5,000 over my ideal budget. i think what i need to do is go to a used car lot and bug the hale out of a salesman as long as i can before he realizes i'm not buying a car until a few months later.
