First time buyer here.

How viable is getting a low rate/high mileage shitbox for a first car? (+150k miles) Any good/bad experiences with yours?
All I know is, it should be good as long as it runs normal and the maintenance is ok.

>financing a high mileage shit box

Anything with 150K+ miles, you are going to get raped with a 20%+ APR

>financing
Nah, I got savings to pay up front anything below 7000 thanks to my parents.

>>14187779
Who said he was financing?
>>14187684
Its fine OP, just make sure you go over the car, sometimes shit could be wrong with it for it sitting for sale for a while (rusted brakes, corroded/sundamaged lines, sundamage etc.)

Alright, so just regular wear?
There isn't exactly covered parking anywhere I live. Thanks though, I'll be sure to look out for that.

And i like you long post guy. But yeah he probably just fucked up, i somehow knew he wasnt talking about financing. Loke i said OP should be fine depending how well the car was taken care of
>>
>>14187799
Regular wear, and make sure to test drive it , and get it to operating temp and to highway speeds to see how it handles. Check engine bay for sounds and shit, check under the car for leaks etc. Pretty simple shit. Avoid sketchy ass cars

Ok missed that, was about to go full long post on what a terrible idea financing a 150K shitbox would be
>>
Better off getting a good well made car with high mileage. Will still be cheap
>>
Disregard retards op
Bought a 2001 mitz mirage 1.5l 5 years ago with 90k miles for $2000 still dd, eats 5k mile roads trips.
150k is a lot on a shitbox, I'd try for a lower milage car.
