I'm sure daddy would be happy to help and make it easier for you. I could probably get you a coupon for 15% off myself.
Maybe a Cheviot sonic or Toyota Yaris in red.

Well, I have Bailey. But there was one time the limousine broke down and had be picked up by Buster's mom with Buster and Arthur to cooking lessons. I will admit at first I thought it was going to be terrible but the trip was more fun than the cooking in the end.

Oh I'm litterally going to throw up.
Cathy probably doesn't know what a Toyota yaris is. 
My Nissan primera Camino is just fine and no need for a cambelt. Cathy you need to know these things. Toyotas need cambelt changes. They are good cars I'll admit as I've driven them since I first got my license but things like Oil, water, suspension etc. Do you even know how to pump petrol/gas???

Thank you, that sounds great. I'm ignoring the idiotic post below because I don't need to pump gas or change things in a car, mechanics do that and its the guy at the gas stations job to pump my car.

I know what a Yaris is, Chip recommended them as a first car.

It's called Echo in North America https://www.cstatic-images.com/stock/900x600/225562.jpg the hatchback is only available in Canada.

BTW you drive a JDM? Cool.

I used to work for HERTZ we had Echos, very good little cars. I was pretty sure there were both Toyota Echo and Yaris, both economical and easy to maintain. I first had a corolla hatchback, I loved it. I learned to drive a manual/stuck shift and upgraded to a nicer Corolla two door spruced up metallic blue thing. I'd rather my Camino was stick shift but hey it gets the job done Smile

The wheels aren't as flash as this but you get the idea.
Yup JDMs are great. Thankyou Smile

Not long until I start making my license. If it has to be Japanese, I'll take a Carina E in a heartbeat.

Good choice. A four door sedan :-) 
My sister has a Marino but I'd have a Carina over that 
I drove a Camry for awhile.

It's different in NZ that is true.
A small blue one? Yeah I haven't seen that particular model here, just the white one you posted below.

In Germany it's impossible to import a JDM car. I've never seen one on these streets, ever.

However, US imports are plentiful here, some common (like the Tahoe and Suburban) some not, like the Geo Metro I once spotted in front of a local supermarket.

And then there are the US-versions of cars you could just as well buy here, like this Golf in my area: https://i.imgur.com/88H5tiy.jpg
Here an actual European Cabrio for comparison: http://c.tutti.ch/big/vw-golf-iii-cabrio-karmann-2440591425.jpg

In UK I drove my in laws Golf, the proper German version I'd imagine :-) great cars. Yellow number plates were weird to me because in New Zealand we have plain white with black letters. We don't get the US versions due to driving on the left side of the road

Obviously we didn't either, these are all gray-imports from America.

"I'm sure your business is American owned and operated?" Catherine, did I misunderstand that or are you xenophobic? If so, how did you even make friends with Debi?

Yeah, I have a 2007 Scion XB that I bought used in 2010. It's Toyota built but uses a chain instead of a belt. I've put almost 175,000 miles (about 282,000 km) on it but the original timing chain still runs fine Smile Meanwhile the 2001 Kia Sephia I owned before it broke two timing belts within three years.

Chain belts are the way to go!!!
I'd expect better from a Kia though... Still. 
I am pro Toyota because every one I've owner never had a problem. I just sold them to pay for travel to and from the UK to see the in laws etc. They're great cars. Starlets and corollas, yaris, Camry and Corona etc but Coronas have big engines though. The small corollas are economical and leads and spark plugs are easy to get unlike my Mazda Cronos...that was an awful veichle and blew up on me 3 months after I got it. I was a foolish 20yr old. It wasn't expensive but finding parts to fix it would have cost more than the car itself. 

I've wanted a newer model Toyota for ages. Something in the 2005-2010 era but its still between 8-15,000 dollars here

Jewish people can be xenophobic too. Haven't you ever heard of the ongoing conflict between Palestinians and Israelis?

Wow this derailed quickly. 
Im not going to post a response because all it would do is start a controversial debate. 
There are people who think the Palestinians are in the right then there are those who believe Israel is the holy land therefore it belongs to the Israeli nation. As a Christian I would always side with Israel and I have alot of ancestry that dates back to Jew/Polish/Spanish. Any race can be xenophobic though.
