The Most Economical Vehicle For 10000-15000 Dollars

If you are planning to get a brand new car but don’t want one that eats a lot of gas or would cost a lot for repairs, you should consider a car that costs between $10,000 to $15,000. It must also have 4/5 doors and it probably should not be a huge car.

It is best to also search for a car that works on gasoline. Probably the most fuel efficient gasoline operated car will be the Yaris by Toyota. Then again, let’s see the Diesel options, because you will have several choices here also.

Between 8,000 to 10,000 Euros, you could possibly get an Astra, Corsa, Opel or a Renault Clio. It is possible to also give thought to purchasing a second-hand car with 60 000 – 140 000 kilometers.

If your finances are more like $12,000 or more, you can get the Opel Astra, Hyundai Accents or the Mazda 6 that is suitably equipped. You might likewise find a Yaris for that much too. There are also late model BMWs that can be obtained for that price but they do burn up gas.

When your spending plan easily tops $13,000, you can probably think about getting a new car instead of a used one. The Mitsubishi Colt is a fantastic idea, it can be a little deafening inside. Moreover, the Colt won’t have a good resale value despite its decent quality.

Another good car, even though a tad small, is the Suzuki Swift. The driver has a certain amount of space, but the person sitting behind him will not enjoy the same comfort. The model with the 1.25 engine saves on fuel but it is not a particularly good drive, which may not be worth it for the price.

The Hyundai Accent 1.5 is yet another car with typical optional features and a decent warranty. Hyundai features a very strong five year warranty or 100,000 kilometers and they’re known for quality service.

Another great car manufacturer is Skoda and they’ve got the new Fabia with 68 HP engine. However, the support is not so great, and you could have problems repairing it at your local garage.

The Renault Clio is an additional car to consider with its 65 horsepower 1.5 liter engine and sufficient room for a tall person. It has pretty good mileage at 5.4 liters per 100km in the city and it consumes just 3.8 liters on the highway. One thing is for sure: you can’t expect to have a high performance car if you’d like a car that is fuel efficient. However many of these cars can go as high at 120 km/h without very much trouble. At high speeds, gasoline consumption can go over 4 liters per kilometer but no more than 7 or 8.

Save Your Dollars By Purchasing An Older Vehicle Rather Than A New One

New cars are extremely attractive especially sitting in one for the first time and yet there are good reasons to purchase one that is a couple of years old. My grandma told me years ago that I shouldn’t buy a new car. She explained I could possibly be better off finding a car a couple of years old with low mileage. This should mean that the car I ended up owning was in fairly good order especially since any work that had been needed on it up to that point would have been carried out.

Although this made sense to me and I happen to be living by that principle ever since, there are actually other reasons why buying a car a few years old is a good choice. I will now expand further on why buying a car that is not overly old can result in saving you a lot of money.

Right after paying for a new car, it is usually worth a few thousand less right after you leave the car showroom and is something you may not have considered. Any purchase transaction of say $25,000 for a new car will not have been useful to you even though you think it was. The instant you drive that car away from the lot it may now only be worth $20,000. Which means that in a matter of a few moments and a few miles you just erased $5,000.

You should purchase a new car if you think I am being extreme. As soon as you have, besides going home, you shouldn’t drive anywhere else. Then the next day bring the car directly back to the dealer and see how much you can get for a trade in. With regards to trading in the car you can expect anywhere between $15,000 and $20,000 and this is for a car you bought for $25,000 the day before.

In past times, this is merely how things worked in the trade. There are situations now where for approximately 30 days a dealer will give you the full original value back if you are trading in your car. You’ll still be $5000 down after those 30 days have gone by. You might possibly make a more substantial loss if you try to locate a buyer for your car yourself.

At this point when you buy a car that is a few years old you won’t be losing that instant depreciation when you drive it off the lot. If perhaps there were issues with the car these should have long been solved as my grandmother originally stated. Once you consider it that way, by purchasing a pre owned car with low miles you will actually be getting more for your money than if you bought a new car at the dealership.

It’s just something to bear in mind the next time you are making plans for getting a new car. Unless you care about losing out on that new car smell you can end up getting a much better deal.
