Deciding which car to get in Auto Talk Posted September 20, 2007 · Report post Update and answer time.. lol.I ended up deciding on a cheap used car that her dad picked up at auction in FL for me. 96 Jetta, 5 speed, power everything, 29k miles... $1500USD!!!!!!!!! And since daddy owns the local Veedub dealer, maintenance isn't a big worry of mine. Car should arrive next week.Her Dad confided in me that he's hoping to get the smart franchise on the island, if not once they start selling, he promised to get me the first one he finds at auction in the states.As to why no Honda Fit. They're backordered on the island... like the Scion xD and any Mini.
