I’m 18 years old and my first car a 2004 Acura MDX with 250 thousand miles on it has reached then end of its life. I need a new car for traveling to and from college next year, I’ll be driving to Lubbock Texas from Colorado and I need it to last about 6 to 7 years. I’ve got a budget of about 7 to 11 thousand dollars being paid cash. Being new to car buying I don’t know where to start. I like the Impreza and the wrx hence why I’m here. What do I need to look out for while shopping these cars particularly in the private sales like on car gurus or Craig’s List.
