hey i dont know a lot about cars, but i know sum. im lookin at a car that could be my first. my parents are willing to pay for it, and when they bought my sis' they spent 14k on it, so i think they are gonna pay sumthin around that for me, or cheaper. heres the catch. it has to be safe. so my parents want to get me a volvo. any of you know of a safe car that is still pretty fast (cus all guys need a fast car just a manly thing and sweet). so far im gonna try to tell my parents that if i hav a car thats fast and manoverable ill b able to avoid an accident, but that prolly wont work. so post away and i hope u can help me out. thanks.
