So, I thought it'd be a good idea to gather some info on what people choose as first cars in your countries.

I'll go first smile.gif

Ireland: Small, old, tiny engine from a lawnmower (for cheap tax and insurance), usually rubish.

Example: Opel Corsa B 1.0 12V (973cc)

Poland: Old, cheap, small(ish) engine so it's cheaper to run (usually), mostly reliable and cheap to maintain cars.

Example: Volkswagen Golf MK3 1.9 TDI

I guess we're pretty lucky over here in the states. $2k can buy you an 80s Diesel Suburban, a wide range of well equipped 90s SUVs, sedans, or even a small truck.
Insurance is insane but isn't determined as much by the vehicle as it is in other parts of the world, and fuel is relatively cheap.

If it wasn't for the high tax and insurance here, we'd be able to drive most of the cars on LPG.

79c per litre which is... $4 per gallon. Not too bad.
