Find an older family

that takes care of things and has perhaps barely used the car. My Mom just gave my sister her 1996 Toyota with 18,000 original miles! My mom rarely drove more than to the market and to do errands. My dad would always start the car and give it a good ride once a week or so. Essentially, my sister got a brand new car even though it was 13 years old. Only thing is rubber does not hold up well, so even if you find a great deal, replace the tires for safety reasons. And without electronic windows and all that stuff that is expensive if it fails, your maintenance will be significantly less. Also, motors like Toyota will typically last 300,000 miles.
