    I probably need a used car. My dad told me to shop around rental car instead, because I will get the full history a of a car. Any suggestion?

    You can also go to a dealer to get a formerly leased car - they're usually good buys. And check out TrueCar.

    I know of a couple of people who are leasing Fiat electric cars for $49.00 a month. You only get 80-100 miles per charge, it is a very very small piece of crap car, but for $49 a month ... it seems like a bonafide beater.

    What has a short guy who's a player got to do with buying a car?:lol:

    Proce
    a stud, short in stature, who is young enough to tease and old enough to please. Proce is most commonly referred to as an "OG" and can wiggle the sticks with the best of them.

    I'm looking into Kia, around $10,000

    For $10K, at least around here, you could probably do slightly "better" used than Kia. I'm not trying to knock Kia; they have nice newer cars. That said, I'd be hard-pressed to find any older Kias still driving around, and their resale value isn't as good as some other brands.

    It's your prerogative, though. Unless you have any reason or desire to strictly choose one car brand over another, I'd say leave your options open with such a budget.

    I heard Kia is very reliable, even though it is cheaper.

    See if the factory warranty will transfer to you.

    Lot of manufacturers have"Certified Preowned" vehicles that have gone through an intensive inspection and carry a warranty. With a 10k budget you should be able to get a decent choice of vehicles.
