19 year old, international licence, doesn't need anything fancy should just do the work
Currently I am using public transport for my commute from college to home which takes me around 1h 30m, if I get my private vehicle the time will be reduced by 1h and also way more comfort.
Looking for something that is cheap and reliable to run being an international student. Doesn't really matter if it's manual or automatic.
It would be great if someone could give me an estimate of how much does it take to run a car; i.e., the services, insurance, rego, etc.
Also, I had been thinking to get a second hand motor-cycle instead, but people had been saying it isn't really safe and isn't practical considering Melbourne weather; plus the fact that I can get a car in that much price too. What's your thoughts on that?
Requirements: 3 days travel to and fro from home to uni -25kms one way might also start with some delivery job if it offers good mileage
