Hey guys. I’m buying a used car and trying to decide which one to purchase. All of the following ones I have located have clean car faxes, oil changes and regular maintenance done regularly. I just want to hear what some of you would choose and why. They all have timing chains which is one of the major things I look for compared to cars with belts.
2010 Toyota Corolla - 82k miles - $9400
2011 Chevy Cruze 67k miles 1.4 Turbo Engine - $9600
Choice of 2 Hyundai Accents
2013 Hyundai Accent with 13k miles for $9700
2016 Hyundai Accent with 40k miles for $8700
- My opinion * * *
Originally had my mind set on a Camry or Corolla and was happy when I found this one. Then I looked at the price and the mileage. 82k is still decent mileage for the price and it’s a Toyota so it will have plenty of miles left to go.
Then I seen the Chevy after much more searching. Not a big fan of Chevy and I’ve been reading really poor things about newer Fords and Chevys. But then again everything you read about most any car as some good and some bad. But 67k isn’t too bad either and I’m sure it has plenty of life left.
Then I thought well there are a few Hyundai’s near by one that is practically brand new with only 13k miles which is probably the more logical option for me. The 40k 2016 would just come down to color which would be my family’s pick for color but that doesn’t matter to me. I’d rather have the lower mileage.
I’ve been reading a lot about Hyundai’s and they seem to have a lot of good reviews and many people favor them over ford and chevy.
I am just looking for a car to get from point a to b with good gas mileage which all of these have. But right now I’m leaning more towards the two Hyundai’s even knowing how reliable Toyota is.
With the Hyunda’s I would more than likely keep them until 120,00 miles and sell them. The other I would be keeping until 180,000 range.
