Important!

Things needed this summer: New job, new place to live, new car. (Possibly new computer). Oh poo, and I have to make sure and get my school schedule together.

Finding a place will be a hastle, but I think I can manage. What I'm more concerned about are things like getting a new job and car. Even the job thing I think I can manage, with a little help and encouragement from helen99 (thanks!).

So the car.. I'm thinking of something in a wagon with less than 100,000 miles. I'm giving myself a budget of $3000 or less. The first thing that popped into my head was a Ford Escort Wagon (this thing matches my criteria), because I was looking at one of those in Florida and it seemed pretty nice. The problem I have is that I have no idea what is or isn't a good / decent car.

Does anyone out here know what's a decent buy? I could potentially sign up for Consumer Reports or something, but I thought I'd ask here first..

I drive a 1997 Escort wagon. Despite reports to the contrary, it's actually a pretty decent car. It's doing just fine at 118,000 miles.

That's just the car I wanted for that whole Florida thing in '03. Don't forget to check out it's history with one of those VIN research sites ^^ And good luck with the apartment/job hunt

I can't help but notice that people don't actually post those in listings. I'll have to see if I can get them to give me the number, s'pose.
