I am approved for a loan from my bank for any of these. Money is not really an issue but I am trying to save some money and/or get the best deal here. I am just graduating this month and do not yet have a job (but when I get a job I absolutely need a car since my shifts start at 7 am and live too far to take transit to any hospital in time). I don't have to start paying my $20k student burden back until next year around this time.
I also will negotiate so hopefully all of those prices will be lower, however, I've checked the Canadian version of the Kelley blue book and these asking prices are all within $1000 of the wholesale price except for the 2007 which is listed under the wholesale price.
tqc, which car would you buy? Which car do you think I should buy (if it's different than your preference).
