We are looking to buy a new-used car

What could we get for less than 10K cash? We want something that doesn't have a lot of miles on it. Not a truck, van or gas guzzling suv, crossover maybe. Something that is comfortable to ride in and a family type. Preferably a GM or foreign.

Has anyone ever bought a car from ebay? good luck with it?

anything over 80-90K

we don't care much about the age provided that you can buy parts for it

The problem we are running in to now is because we have older cars is they aren't making parts for them anymore so we are having to get parts from salvage yards.

We will not make payments on anything. We always pay cash. I don't want to owe anyone anything.

We paid 5K for the park ave & it had 68K on it. It now has nearly 200K on it.

I can vouch for the mazda5, very versatile. There are some used ones out there for under 10k.

I'm sure you can get a Honda Civic in the 05-08 range for about what you're asking for. Let me know what your zip code is and I can do some research for you.

Go to auto trader. Com and cars. Com. Search the miles and the price you want for the car you want. Simple enough.

Then go to local dealers and go negotiate.

Thanks for all the feedback. I'll save this and use it for a future time.

My car spontaneously started working again. The little good fortune elves must have paid it a visit or something because it's running fine now. We had it towed to the shop because it started making an awful racket and it was shaking like crazy it also wouldn't go when shifted into gear. The shop could not duplicate the problem. They ran diagnostics on it and no fault codes came up they said the only thing was the fuel pressure was about 10 lbs low but that didn't concern them much because if the fuel pump were going bad, it would be reading lower than that for sure. They recommended just driving it around town and if it happened again to give them a call.

So, I'm just going to drive the bastard till the wheels fall off.
