[Solved] Which first car for a 17yr old?
I am 17 years old and obviously I want car but I don’t really know which one to chose. I’ve been doing some research on Toyota’s and Honda’s and more specifically the 2011 Toyota Corolla and the 2012 Honda Civic.Both I have heard are great cars but what is your opinion on the best one?
Corolla would last a bit longer
Corolla would have a more comfortable ride and less road noise
Corolla would have FAR more comfortable seats
Civics are usually known for their zippyness and handing but 2012 was different you don't get that
Civic is a newer generation and might look better
I personally would get the Corolla but the Civic is a worthy option.
My 2 cents? Both are great first cars, the condition and options of the example you buy is probably more important than which one you pick. We are talking about 10 year old cars, which can easily been kept fastidiously maintained, or neglected and abused in those 10 years.
Get the Toyota Corolla for reliability or get the Honda Civic for best comfortable driving experience. You didn't say the mileage or the price. I'm assuming you're looking for a specific vehicle we answered.
For those, it comes down to which one you like better so you should road test both of them. The Corolla is just a little bit more reliable but the Civic is more zippy and fun to drive. The 2012 Civic did get a lot of negative criticism because of the way it looks, rides, and the cheap interior materials so maybe try bumping your search up by a year and check out the 2013 Civic, which is much better.
Corolla; you just know their better than civics.....
maybe try looking into camry's; they're way better than crappy corolla's. Toyota cheapened every single possible thing they could to the corolla (worse steering, brakes, power, more plastic...) and although an excellent car reliability wise, camry is just more powerful and luxurious.
