OK.. So as you guys know I am going to be taking my DMV test pretty soon.. probably tomorrow actually. Now I'm at the point where I need to start thinking about what car I am going to be getting and what insurance provider I will be using. Now I know many of you will say "6 months with a permit don't need a car etc" but I will need to begin saving up, and I am trying to work out a goal to save for.
In terms of a vehicle, my main criteria for a car would be gas mileage and safety. I was thinking maybe an old Honda, or an old Volvo.. But I don't know too much about cars in general :x. Just looking to get from a to b without spending too much or god-forbid dying.
My second concern being insurance.. What am I looking to spend here? I heard that a male first time driver is looking at a worse rate than a female, but what exactly does anyone in the Northeast pay, gender aside? I won't be able to afford any good coverage I'm sure.. Just going to stick with liability.
Any feedback on a car or insurance would be greatly appreciated. :)
