Third Car Opinions

So right now i have the jeep and my mom has the honda odyssey.
my dad used to work internationally so he didnt need a car in vancouver. but now hes thinking of getting a car around spring time after winters done. he wants a nice and compact small car, but not to shieety.
questions are

1. should we buy a car in the winter time or spring time? since its gonna be a coupe or a sedan without awd, i was thinking maybe it might be cheaper since ppl are looking for 4x4s and stuff in winter.

2. whats a non-american car thats not bad looking, a bit sporty, and around 20-30k price range? (thinking about the is350, tl, golf, ....)



looking for some opinions from ppl who have experience or knowledge of car price differences.
thnx in advance

Re: Third Car Opinions

acura tsx the new body design you can find one around that range ...

new mazda 6 body styles are nice too

depends on what brand you favor honestly ... look into cars.com and pull up various brands for that price range and see what fits the budget the best ... so many to list lol

good luck though

But go the last week of the month to negotiate the best deals before May. When It's cold out and after the holidays people aren't buying much of anything. At the end of the month dealers try to push sales to get their numbers up.
