The Best Sites for Cheap Cars

Updated on January 2, 2010

Introduction

We all love cheap cars and the web sites that help us locate them. Thankfully we can call up hundreds of thoughtfully designed sites offering to satisfy our unquenchable thirst for low priced internal combustion. Conceptually, a cheap car should be low in price but still a daily runner. It may be a tad rusty with a strong engine, dependable brakes, and a really really loud radio. Unlike Congress, it may look bad on the outside but still do all the important stuff reliably. We present the unarguable definitive list of the best sites for cheap cars. Shop away, but leave your credit card in your other pants. Here come our Best Sites for Cheap Cars.

PreferCars.com: If your vision of a cheap car includes a $179,000 Aston Coupe, surf to PreferCars.com immediately. The site is dominated by Google AdSense, generic boilerplate text designed to attract search engines, and links to all the major manufacturers. It's colorful and engaging. A set of tools for locating Cheap New Cars is also provided, but that it beyond the scope of this research.

Carwale.com offers a comprehensive set of tools for identifying cheap used cars. A slick drop-down control allows a city to be selected, then drills down to offerings in that city. Once arriving at a city, you can sort by price, mileage, color, seller (dealer or individual) and year. It works well if you live in India or plan to travel there for the purpose of securing a cheap used car.

ElectroCars.net boasts the largest collection of used cars in the United States. Not having the time to count every listing, we cannot disagree. Aside from the plethora of Google AdSense, most screen real estate is taken up with Featured Cheap Cars, Search for Used Cars, and Cars by Category. If your browser is scrollable (and which ones aren't these days?) you might make good use of these online tools after bypassing the AdSense.

GlobalCarDealers.com: If your cheap used car requirements run beyond everyday mundane people haulers, consider GlobalCarDealers.com. Once in a while we all need a global car, yes? Apparently a 2005 Honda Pilot in Montgomeryville PA meets the needs of a global driver. To their credit, the good folks at GlobalCarDealers also provided the address and web site of the dealer offering the vehicle.

LocalCarsNow.com: Should you need a cheap used car immediately, not tomorrow or next week, check out this site. Should you require transportation that is available in your zip code, not a neighboring state or an unfortunate global offering, surf on over to LocalCarsNow. The site doesn't disappoint; every cheap used car is local to someone. Sometimes only local to the seller, but that still counts.

WebStreetCars.com: Cruise the Interweb in a spiffy cheap used car from WebStreetCars. It's easy to find, next to DigitalDiningRooms and around the corner from the HyptertextHighway. Find here the virtual transport of your dreams. Be sure to visit "Featured Old Cars For Sale" and "Latest Added Antique Muscle Cars For Sale". We noted a classy 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle listed for $69996. Is it "Featured Old" or "Antique Muscle"? We vote for both.

I might also prefer to express, not just tend to be that reports good composed, but the particular style of your web-site is superb. It was effortless to navigate out of article to post and select exactly what I had been wanting for with easiness. Continue up the excellent job you are working on, and I will be back again many times in the near future."

      Great Hub here! I am in the market for getting a new car. Pity this is in dollars, I gotta deal with sterling. Great websites on muscle cars out there. I wish we had more cars like that here in Europe / Uk!
