A few of these sellers I actually feel bad for. I imagine some of these people are selling out of necessity, and might be forced to accept much less than they are worth. But on a more cheery note, there are some really good deals out there right now.
Let’s start with something really rare stateside.
This supercharged (kompressor) Mercedes C 230 hatchback has a scant 108,000 miles and the seller is asking just $4,500. It has a mislabeled automatic, but that interior seems almost unused. And I like the color. I really don’t know much about these cars though.
Let’s move on to something really cheap. This Audi TT has to be broken, or else it wouldn’t be $2,000. No word from the seller, however.
But can you get a fully function reliable car for as cheap as $2,000? Yes you can!
These poor people have been trying to sell this well maintained high mileage 5 speed Toyota Matrix for quite a while now and the price is down from $5,000. That’s quite a drop. But that interior looks so good still. I would buy this in a heartbeat if I didn’t have much cash to spend.
But can you go offroad for perhaps a little more? Let’s compare some $5,000 Jeeps, which are not known for being in good condition when really cheap.
The seller of this 1994 loudly proclaims that he is selling. And what he is selling seems to be pretty good. No word on the interior but with all the parts included a 190k mile Jeep is pretty good for that money. No word on the interior.
This 1988's interior just looks perfect. For only 188k claimed miles, this thing looks great. And those wheels in particular complete the look well, which are claimed to be Mickey Thompsons. I know which one I would take.
And now for something maybe a little more expensive than expected but so rare that I had to include it. A 2006 Suzuki Aerio SX! It has a mislabeled automatic, but actually looks very good for 121k miles. In case you somehow forgot what these look like, here you go:
And finally, this functioning 180k mile Saturn Ion Coupe is just $1,750! And it has the 5 speed! I really like these more than is reasonable, but just look at those clamshell half doors!
So, out of this lot, which would you drive home? Well, they are pretty cheap for the most part so why don’t you treat yourself to two? I think I would take the Matrix for DD duty and the gray ‘88 Jeep with gray paint on Mickey Thompsons for weekends.
