Wonder where they get their prices from. Seem a little low from what I've experienced shopping. Anything less than $3000 has serious issues. $5k-6k gets you something drive-able.

ehhh, i'll stick with my 85 mustang and 69 f250,,. im not talkin crap on the new stuff but when my kid is old enough to drive i want him to have a old vehicle, the reason is old vehicles dont crumble when in a accident, most the time they only get a dent.... and i'd want my kid to be safe behind real steel,... and not aluminum or thin sheet metal

As a Dad and Grandfather, I agree 100+% with emeraldbeachman. thinking.  This articles leaves me cold, as many of the suggested cars have a proven record as dangerous cars to drive or even ride in.  My daughter took a 2 year old Volvo to college and my son, a 5 year old Ford Sedan.  The Ford was hit and totaled  his first year, and he got a Buick mid-size sedan, also totaled in his second year.  Both accidents were not his fault, luckily no injuries and through insurance settlements he was making money.  Mom and Dad need to think long and hard about cars away at college.  Safety must come first, then repair costs, operating costs.  These cars will be tested; pick a good one.  Oh, my sons third year at college he took my 1972 Olds Cutlass Supreme convt..  His gain became my lost, that same car today fully restored is now selling for $65,000+.  Maybe they should repay me for their college costs!!!

I would bought a car that old and  love it. 94 Mazda protege $950 going on 3 years of 38-40 mpg on my commute to work. Just regular oil changes and routine maintenance! Last car 92 Infiniti Q45 had for 5 years. 20 mpg but only cost me $1800 and regular maintenance. Gave i to my bro when his Cadillac he was making payments on could not stay running! The New volvos are not as good as the old ones. Had a 84 Volvo 240DL that thing was bulletproof. I rather put my money in the bank! Only one I regret was the 98 ford ecort. Piece of crap.

Who in their right mind would buy a car this old?   My college bound son is getting my 3 year old volvo in August.   It is safe, very reliable, and will go for 400,000 miles.   I will get the NEW car.   Kids need a SAFE car.

Gee and to think i was looking for something reliable that wont run me a lot of repair bills.  Looking around for past 2 months for 6-8k and cant find anything under 135k miles.. oh yeah thats when everything starts going bad..
