Graduating this spring and looking for a set of wheels?
We’re in the same boat.
I recently graduated from Northeastern University and got a job that requires that I have a car. I decided that as an “adult” and because there are so many appealing offers for graduates, it’s a good time for me to buy, and I’ve decided to buy new.
I need something that is $17,000 or less, reliable, gets good gas mileage, is easy to park, and has a high safety rating. To compare cars, I looked at Consumer Reports, since I’ve used it before and I like that it has a no commercial use policy. I test drove the hatchback style of these cars, all subcompacts, since I think they look cool and often get better gas mileage, several also come as sedans if that’s your preference.
