My car is against the ropes, and an ECU is gonna set me back a bit too much for it to be worth it. So, I’m looking for an excessively cheap car for my 5ish mile commute to work. I know that there’s a “cost of ownership” component, but I really just need something to drive for a few months while I get settled in my new job. So, jaloposphere, if you had less than $1000 for a car, what would you buy?
Requirements: I live in Wisconsin, so don’t suggest a motorcycle. And I am an avid outdoorsman, so it will need to be practical.
Aside from that, you can have at it.
I’ll tell you now I am leaning VW.
I welcome most opinions.
