Nah sorry didn't realise they cost that much haha.
Don't buy an auto mitsi. Boxes are utter rubbish.
Also be sure to avoid cvt boxes (jazz, primera etc).
Hondas are priced pretty well and reliable in nz. Toyotas are overpriced to hell.
They are ok if you service them. I have a Auto Magna and it still has the original transmission. The oil and filter was replaced (transmission) every 30,000kms.
AE86. Small enough, nice sharp steering.
Perfect girls car
Toyota / mazda.
Stay away from astra
Astra's are fine, it's the vectra u need to stay away from, lemons the lot of em and parts are outrageous.
Mazda 3/6 or Toyota corolla
Totally agree, my gf had a 2005 vectra CDXi and it was nothing more than a money pit, fix one thing for another thing to bust
Pics of said "chick" before I can evaluate ideal car!!!
I have an '06 2.4L manual sports Lancer for sale for $7000. All these jap girls cars are so cheap because there is no market in them.
Give her the VK
What are service and parts costs like though? Wouldnt be as cheap as a small Jap car.
why does a girl have to drive a crappy fwd with hatches in aus.
Every week i have to pull a girl out of a wrecked one.... damn deathtraps.... well the fwd bit.
The hatch just makes it ass ugly.
Get her a Toyota Corolla 2002 - 2012 They are a fantasic first car for a girl cause thats what my first car was !!!! They are awesome on fuel they dont need that much maintenance just an oil change every 100,000km very easy to handle cause its front wheel drive also got alot of safety features driver and passenger airbags and i think the latest one has side airbags as well if you get the sports edtion you wont go wrong they are a sexy car and you wont have that much problems with it like you would with an Mazda or an hyundai... Diffidently dont get a hyundai they mite have the highest safety rating but they go like ****... Hope this helps and you end up getting her a Toyota !!!!

Parts and servicing is one par and sometimes cheaper than Toyota. And because they're mostly owned by old people km's are low. Hers is only 24,000km.
smart fortwo coupe... seen a bunch under 8k...
Corolla all the way I say.
thanks everyone, to clear things up, she's my girlfriend, not daughter lol awks!! I'm only 23!! haha. Secondly thanks for all posts, something to look over with her. She wants a jap car just because of reliability, but I have no experience in Asian cars so I'm not much help.
I'll ask her if she wants a manual Goodtimes, but I think she's pretty keen on an auto.
Is hyundai worth a look? All there small cars from around 2000-2006 look pretty ugly. And they all look like death traps. Should have mentioned in the first post safety is a big concern. Why she's leaning towards Jap.
Meh manual will be cheaper in the long run and my opinion is they are safer, more control, more concentration, more breaking if needed. Meh each to our own.
