  • So which of these cars are you thinking about picking up? I can't choose! Let me know.

    • Scion Frs ?

    • 280z

    • Crown Vic is the cheapest most reliable to buy on this list.

    • Feel like the Audi A4/passat b5/5.5 shoulda gotten an honorable mention, you can buy em cheap and have a ripping road racer

    • You forgot the 2006-2009 Toyota Camry #camrynation

  • This might help me find a car

  • I've got a red 2006 Infiniti G35 sedan 6mt. What do you guys think of it?

  • the crown vic is the best car on the list no doubt

  • Cough cough 3000gt

  • Honestly, one of my favorite cars that I’ve owned was a 2005 Hyundai Accent gt. It came with a 1.6L 4 banger and a 5 speed manual transmission. It’s a 2 door 4 seater hatchback, and the seats folded down for extra cargo space. I got it for $1800 with 140k miles and ran it until over 200k. (Until my dumbass roommate blew it up) That little thing was way too much fun.

  • You want a WRX buy it in the South! $3.2k @182k miles 2 years ago.

  • Civic better Then e46 said no-one ever😂😂😂

  • Saturn ion redline

  • You can get c5 corvettes and probably a manual around 10k.

  • 300ZX Z31 and Z32

  • Recently got a 00 740il for $900, flaws are just cosmetic, front bumper was destroyed, tiny dents around and car has been keyed a few times. Other than that it’s a nice comfy daily

  • it’s funny because i bought a mk4 golf with a blown head for 500$ and rebuilt it with my dad over the last few months and got some cool stuff put on/in it and i love this car even if it isn’t the nicest thing on the road.❤️

  • In my country you are lucky if you can get a s2k for under 17k euros

  • 3rd and 4th gen mustang yo

  • Honda Accords y’all sleep on the 3.0 vtec with the 6 speed i love mine super fun car i paid 2,800 with 160,000 miles, in Texas they are pretty damn cheap.

  • 370Z is approaching 10K

  • Where's the c5...

  • I was glad the is300 made honorable mentions :D they’re the only car I’ve owned since turning 15. 2j for life

  • Toyota celica

  • Chrysler Crossfire

  • Ok, so you suggest bad japanese cars (350Z), horrible German cars that are ugly and you yourself say are trash (Mini), and choose one of the worst Mercedes ever (W203) to get as an AMG? You are really really off. If you want an AMG, get a W202 or W210.

  • Surprised no Passat or a4

  • Found a 2010 dodge charger police for 7k. Video gave me the idea to look for it, thanks fam

  • Nissan s13-s15's are some of the cheapest and most moddable cars out there. However, they are usually high maintenance if you don't swap out everything for aftermarket at some point.

  • What is the pros and cons in the 2002 Subaru b4

  • You could get a decent duramax, Cummins, or powerstroke.

  • Miata Is Always The Answer

  • Any toyota with a 4age20v or 16v top of my list

  • Gs’s

  • You an get a 3rd gen camaro for ode cheap but obviously depends on condition and most are auto. Could always swap it and they are very slow so if you got the extra money and what to go fast either swap it or work it.

  • S2000 go for more than 10k you lied saying you wouldn’t show a car higher than 10k

  • ..."10 cities around the us... and New Jersey" uh NJ is a state not a city

  • Talk about not being bias... you can get a mk4 gti for around 4K

  • Do a truck episode for the pick truck community please

  • Go to central Europe, and try to the will end with Dacia Sandero.

  • Wack

  • Mitsubishi Lancer X Ralliart or older models

  • Focus st and Fiesta st around 100 thousand miles are coming down to around 10k. I'd buy the fiesta!

  • LS swapped miata, neuff said

  • You can find nice examples of 2007/8 328i and the E30 can definitely be found sub 10k

  • Fox body mustang 02 Camaro

  • New Jersey is my city

  • I saw an 2008 evox for $10,000 but, the mileage was way over 160k 😑 I wanna Honda as a project car, but I have no garage

  • I got a 93 240sx coupe for 1000 dollars

  • Seat Alhambra 1.9 tdi

  • Here in Brazil, Fiat (FCA) bought bmw/mini factory and renamed it from Tritec to "E-torq" to use in punto, bravo and another models... it's a great motor, bullet proof too (I sold a Bravo with high mileage, never broken). btw, Fiat has transformed this motor form 1.6l to 1.8l... but without supercharger...

  • Yay! Mini cooper made the list! But the r53 :( a great car everyone loves but I have the turbocharged r56, every mini guys least favorite

  • Basically, all of them are NFS UNDERGROUND 2 Cars collection. And all of them are my favorite.

  • Sometimes I hate myself for spending all my money when I turned 17 on a Chevy sonic because I didn’t care about cars

  • Mazda protégé 5 speed needs to be on this list

  • New edge mustang gt or Mach 1

  • You missed 1st gen Audi TT

  • Here in England you can get some decent subarus for £3000 to £5000

  • I have an Nissan 350z and i absolutely love it! Would recommend it to everyone!

  • There's no way an S2000 is $10k. At least 20k

  • From JDM Markets Mitsubishi EVO I-VI Under 10k, average odo's between 90000km-150000 km. Average price for them is between 7-9000$ and AWD with 280 Horsepower.Cheers!

  • S2000 fot 10k!? Wtf that is like 30 grand in Finland rofl...

  • 93-2002 f-body best fun car under 10k

  • I can think of a couple you forgot. Nissan 240sx, 2000’s Ford mustang, old FWD Mitsubishi Ralliart, Porsche 944, Chevy s10, 02-06 Subaru Forester,

  • E46 330, super fun

  • Mitsubishi Eclipse Gsx

  • *still cries in Singaporean*

  • 1. Volvo 940

  • 2000 mustang

  • Great list! Never been a huge fan of American muscle but I’ve had a 94 Camaro Z28 M6 and it is fun as hell, not crazy expensive for a good one, and holy crap it’s easy and cheap as dirt to make these things fast lol

  • The first gen audi tt is pretty cool, you could get it with like 17000 kilometers (yeah, screw you fucking amdricans) for less than 40 grand

  • Got a great 1996 bmw e36 318ti for $2,500 and only 85,000 miles

  • Got my 1st gen mazdaspeed3 for about 9k and it is such a blast to drive!

  • I saw the subi and immediately clicked the video

  • Got a 1991 Jeep Wrangler for my first car. Best $4800 that turned into $10000 I’ve ever spent

  • In Aus you can get a Ford XR6 Turbo for $10,000 or so and they are fantastic cars...

  • I can already tell you are a BMW e46 hater

  • Should've put mustang in there

  • I'm surprised the Quattro 2.7t a4 or a6 with a manual didn't make it, 2 turbo's, awd, and infinite mod potential 3-5 grand. Highly recommend. Also think the mk1 225 Quattro TT deserved a spot but I'm VW/Audi to the core so maybe I'm biased

  • 5:46 I took the top off

  • Feels good to have owned quite a few of the cars on the list already. But damn, are Wrx's really that expensive in the states? Things get tossed around like dirt over here. Would never dream of spending more than 3k on one tbh. Currently running a 350z and a Fiesta ST. And the fiesta is actually more fun than my old S2k. Missing the soft top though.

  • My first car is going to be a scat pack

  • I would spend maybe 10k more and I could get a scat pack

  • Lol, I almost regret selling my 2000 manual for almost $2000 dollars with just a little over 200 000 miles on the clock and a dead clutch, and dead master and slave cylinder slave, broken power steering, leaking steering wheel and torn leather seats in 2016, but this is Africa and used cars are an absolute rip off this side of the pond in comparison to, well, everywhere else
