But connoisseurs of Japanese brands just pay attention: the version without a roof has not yet released, and last fall, representatives of the Lexus argued that such modification will not appear.

Used cars are best for new drivers

Posted on Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Not much beats the feeling of passing a driving test after all those lessons. But in the cold light of day, the truth many new motorists are finding out is that going on to buy a brand new car is almost impossible as prices are so high. What’s the solution? That’s an easy one- buy second hand!

Yes, the best thing about getting a pre owned auto is that prices are in a totally different league when compared to brand new ones. You’ll be looking at significantly lower numbers across a massive range of used cars for sale, and that means something really rather good is well within reach.

While it’s totally pointless to go out and buy something hugely fast, it is possible. The main aim for driving virgins is to keep costs as low as possible, and that includes up front ones as well as those associated with monthly running. A smaller car that’s frugal on fuel and inexpensive to insure and tax is definitely the best thing to get, and guess what? Buying one used will mean you really will spend next to nothing.

When many people hear ‘second hand’, they have images of broken down old bangers that are neither reliable nor fashionable. That’s a common misconception that’s totally wrong- nowadays you’ll see nothing but high quality autos that look no different to those in the showroom. Shopping online will give you the opportunity to browse through thousands quickly and easily as well. Paying less doesn’t mean you have to look like a wally.

So, after all the excitement and elation of earning a license, the last thing new drivers should do is look at brand new cars. Instead, check out the phenomenal range of used cars on the net and avoid the downers. Anything is possible if you look in the right place, and there are deals-a-plenty online!
