We are looking to buy a new-used car

Recommended Posts

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?

that sounds like a tall order. what do you consider a lot of miles?

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.

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.

Get a Toyota. Also..research used car ratings before you buy. An online subscription to Consumer reports is worth it.

A few years ago I bought a 92 Camry wagon with 140,00 miles on it for $3000. Traded it in with

260, 000 miles on it. I spent $220 on repairs the entire time I had it. Should have kept it longer. Bought it based on Consumer reports ratings. Would not make a major purchase without them.
