    It sounds like the $1000 will just be a down payment on a car that needs thousands of $$$$$$$ in repairs. I would stay away and find yourself a reliable older car for $3K like a honda civic that will not give you massive headaches. Spend $100 for a mechanic to check out any car before you buy. It will be the best $100 you ever spend! Good luck on whatever you decide.
