best used car??

Post by wolfcreek » Sun Dec 22, 2019 11:58 am

For a small person who will only be driving it in the city ..... Based on reliability, ease of finding parts, ease of getting repaired, ease of reselling, etc...

Toyota RAV4 or if you want smaller, a Kia Picanto?

I'm going for a 2001 or newer Rav 4 or a 2002 Honda crv> BUT i will be doing lots of back roads and inter country traveling,
for inner city only with occasional on road trips to the beach i'd choose a 2005+ prius

I love those new Kia Picantos that seem to be everywhere now. That or the Scion XA is what I would buy, especially for city driving. Why do you want a car for city driving? Seems counterproductive nowadays.

Because of the rain, heat, dust issues one encounters on a motobike. Also, safer than a motobike in the event of an accident. Also, less likely to get anything snatched in a car....

Someone said the Scion XB was better than the XA for some reason...

Also less likely to get anywhere in a reasonable amount of time!

Time is not much of a concern (retired person). Has progressed from walking to bicycle to e-bike to motorbike. Now ready for a safer, more comfortable mode of transportation.

KIA Mornings (newer generation) go for around 6k I think. Small, easy to park and fairly cheap.
