Australia’s favourite car in 2011 was the Mazda 3.  The Japanese compact also topped the small-car class despite a solid challenge from the Toyota Corolla and opposition from more than 20 other babies.

But does that make it the best small car in Australia today? There is only one way to find out, which is why we have the Mazda3 lined up against its toughest showroom rivals for the first in a series of Carsguide title fights.

Picking the top four for this punch-up is – relatively – easy. We might like the idea of an Alfa Romeo, or the patriotism of a Holden Cruze, or the space in a Mitsubishi Lancer, but we would not recommend one of those to our best friend.

And, apart from personal preferences and bias, that’s what car choice really comes down to. Which car would you choose to drive away if it was your life and your money?

The Mazda3 is an automatic choice since it’s the reigning champion, and the Toyota Corolla gets an automatic spot as the number one contender. We also have to take the Volkswagen Golf because it’s the best car in the small-car class – if not the best value – and the final spot goes to the Ford Focus because it’s the sweetest drive and was a finalist in last year’s Carsguide Car of the Year award.

You can spend just over $20,000 to put a quality small car on the road, but it’s easy to go much higher with high-performance models such as the $39,490 Mazda3 MPS and $52,490 Golf R. So we settled in the midrange, where most private buyers spend their own cash, with four fighters with prices covered by only $2000. The Corolla Levin ZR comes in at $29,990 and the Golf 118TSI Comfortline is $31,990.

All come with a host of creature features that just five years ago were standard only in luxury cars. Apart from being the cheapest, the popular Corolla is also a valued asset because it is easier to sell at trade-in and is the only one here with the security of capped-price service costs. It also doesn’t scrimp on features with a totally keyless entry and start system that detects when you approach the car and automatically unlocks, Bluetooth, an MP3 compatible CD player, front fog lights, cruise control, moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, auto-on HID headlights and climate control airconditioning.

Our Mazda comes with much the same gear, but this luxury version adds $3000 to the $27,990 price for Bi-Xenon headlamps, a sliding centre armrest console, leather seat trim and a 10-speaker Bose 242-watt sound system. The Focus Sport includes a spoiler, sports seats, auto wipers, Sony sound, leather steering wheel, dual-zone airconditioning and, since December, satnav as standard.

The Golf is the only one here with daytime running lights. It also has an optional park assist system at $1400 and rearview camera at $500.

The newest engine here is the Mazda Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre with an auto stop-start system called i-stop. It’s not the most powerful unit at 113 kiloWatts, well down on the 125kW Focus However, Mazda’s engine is married to a new Skyactiv six-speed transmission which is not only silky smooth but, together with the i-stop function, helps the vehicle achieve the best fuel figures of 6.1-6.2L/100km.

It is marginally lighter on fuel than the VW which has the smallest 1.4 engine, but boosted to 118kW with a turbo. It manages 6.2L/100km due also to the transmission, a seven-speed DSG auto. Toyota’s ageing 1.8-litre engine is the weakest with only 100kW and is relatively thirsty at 7.3L/100km because it only has a four-speed auto.

On the electronics side, the Mazda and Ford have voice recognition and satnav, although the high-mounted screen in the Mazda is almost impossible to see in direct sunlight or for anyone over 50. On the low-tech side, the Corolla is the only vehicle with a full-size spare.

Carsguide takes safety seriously and all four cars have a five-star ANCAP rating. The Toyota and VW lead the pack with seven airbags, adding knee protection for the driver, while the Mazda and Ford have six airbags each. All have parking sensors to avoid carpark bingles, but the Focus and Golf have an optional self-parking feature which is a real show-stopper.

Jumping back into the cars is a reminder that small-car buyers have never had better choices than they do today. All four of the so-called babies have plenty of space, good performance and the sort of equipment that used to make time in a Mercedes-Benz special. But there are significant differences.

Looking first at the champion, the Mazda’s cabin feels surprisingly cramped and dark, there is lots of noise from the tyres, and there is also bumping and thumping on poor surfaces. The Focus is a nicely sporty drive, but the cabin controls are complicated and confusing and it doesn’t seem all that big.

The Corolla has the roomiest feel and update work last year has made the cabin a nice place, while the suspension is great. It’s just a pity about the four-speed gearbox. And the Golf? We expected to drive best and it goes, but the cabin is dark and not particularly inviting, and the DSG gearbox – once a first choice with Carsguide testers – now has us worried. We get lots of owner complaints and poor feedback, and that’s not good.

No drum roll, no fanfare, just the bottom line: it’s the Toyota Corolla. The world’s favourite small car is my choice – back at the top again, after a long run down the field – as the best small car in showrooms today.

The Mazda3 is still the people’s choice, and consistently Australia’s favourite, while the Volkswagen Golf is the class of the field and the Ford Focus is the most fun. But picking a winner in a very tight contest means I have no friends and must consider everything.

The Golf is quality but you pay the price, the cabin is like a cave, and I cannot help wondering and worrying – after a string of owner questions and complaints – about the DSG transmission. It’s a lovely car, and one I love to drive, but I could not buy one.

The Mazda3 is, plain and simple, showing its age. The cabin is cheap, there is too much road noise and suspension thump, the engine is nothing special, and – even though it’s a little thing – the satnav screen is tiny. It’s nice, but not as good as I remembered. And the Focus, a COTY contender last year? The thing it does best, corners, is the one thing most Australians don’t care about. It’s a good car, but not a great car. And the messy dashboard and confusing switches drive me batty.

In a field of four, the Corolla is ordinary but extraordinary. It sneaks up on you with surprising strengths that reflect a deep and long-term understanding of the real needs of small-car buyers. It’s only got a four-speed automatic, but that is easily offset by capped-price servicing through the warranty period. The Corolla is the car I would be happiest to drive away and own, and that makes it my winner.

Affordable models to keep you safe during winter’s reign

Winter is coming soon, with heavy rain, slippery roads, wind storms, and even snow announcing its imminent arrival. If you’re looking for a fresh car with the added foul-road security of all-wheel drive, consider these Consumer Reports recommended models.

In our latest used-car price analysis, we found that there are plenty of deals on pre-owned vehicles with AWD. When it comes to four-wheel traction, many shoppers gravitate toward the larger SUVs, but there are many sedans, wagons, and small SUVs that can provide sure-footed traction and decent fuel economy.

Whatever your preferred car type, there are savings to be had when choosing to buy used, rather than pay full price on a new model. To make it easier to find what you’re looking for, we’ve identified some of the best money-saving deals on good, used AWD vehicles.

Check out our top deals for recommended used vehicles with AWD (all are from the 2010-2012 model years). We placed the vehicles in order, starting with the cheapest price you might be able to get when buying from the dealer. The models listed below cost 16 to 49 percent less than the retail price when the vehicle was new; all are under $20,000. Plus, they have at least average reliability according to our latest subscriber survey.

Used Car Loans

Whether you are buying a used or new car the most important first step is to start searching and comparing for Australian car loans. All used car loans offer something different so spend some time working out what you want and then start comparing interest rates, features and fees until you find the best fit.

A used car loan differs from new car loans and is tailored specifically for those who want to borrow money purely for the purpose of purchasing a used vehicle. Each financial institution will have their own eligibility conditions, some have car age restrictions, so as well as tracking down a good deal keep a keen on the terms and conditions also.

Perhaps the biggest difference between a used and new car loan is the interest rates. Unfortunately the interest rates tend to be a little higher for used car loans.

The rest of the features, like secured and unsecured loan options and fixed and variable interest rates, are much the same, so it will pay to do a little reading so you can pick the best option for your financial situation. RateCity has a comprehensive car loans guide that can steer you down the right track and help you nut out the features and options.

Portable DVD Player Review

The top performers in our review are Pyle PDH14. the Gold Award winner; Audiovox DS2058. the Silver Award winner; and Ematic EPD105 , the Bronze Award winner. Here s more on choosing a computer to meet your needs, along with detail on how we arrived at our ranking of 10 products.

Many portable DVD players come with output cables for standard TVs, which allows you to watch movies on a larger screen even if your hotel lacks a standard DVD player. If you re ready to start upgrading your video library to Blu-ray, we also have reviews on both Blu-ray Players and 3D Blu-ray players. If you re looking for a portable DVD player to entertain your children in the car, another great road trip option is a tablet for kids. Finally, we have several articles about portable DVD players to offer more help with your purchasing decision.

The key advantages to a portable DVD player are its ability to play the movies you already own and its built-in LCD screen. While many people turn to smartphones and tablets for entertainment, they have a serious storage problem, so some people still prefer to grab a DVD off the shelf, rather than constantly thinking about storage capacity. Most of the players on this list come with a car power adapter, so you can watch for several hours at a time, while smartphones, tablets and laptops require a separate adapter to charge in the car. Because DVDs do not display high-definition video, few players offer HD screens. In fact, the only two that have HD displays the Pyle PDH14 and the Ematic EPD105 only utilize its HD capabilities when viewing a 720p video from SD card or USB drive.

Many people have huge collections of DVDs, and the travel DVD players on this lineup will allow you to watch all of your movies. In fact, some of the DVD players have memory card or USB ports, so you can access some of your downloaded videos, music and pictures. With one of the top portable DVD players, you and your kids will be able to take a piece of your home entertainment with you on your next vacation.

Portable DVD Players: What We Evaluated, What We Found

When you are looking for a new portable DVD player, the most important feature is its video and audio quality. Also, we looked closely at the batteries, and tested their actual life against their advertised life.

Video Audio: Performance Is More Than Specs

Although specs will give you a basic idea about the DVD player s performance, the best way to assess the player s video and audio quality is to use it. We performed two video tests to compare the devices against one another.

In our first test, we determined just how wide the maximum viewing angle is, in case multiple people are watching the same screen. Obviously, a wider angle is better for families that plan on sharing one player for multiple kids, but if only one person will be watching a movie, this metric isn t as important.

In the second test, we used a DVD that we were especially familiar with to judge the player s image quality. We applied letter grades to the video quality. If you need more information about why we decided upon that grade, read that product s review for a detailed description of the video quality.

To compare audio quality, we tested the maximum speaker and headphone volumes. Using a decibel meter, we watched particularly loud sections of a DVD with the volume turned all the way up. We placed the meter next to the speaker and the headphone to get both maximum volumes. Then, we turned the players down to their middle levels and listened carefully. Usually, we found that the speakers were a great representation of the movie s sound, although a few of them were slightly quieter at mid-level volumes. We noticed greater variation with headphones. On some players, the sounds were particularly muted, and on the lowest rated, we could hear the disc spinning through the headphones.

Battery Life: How Long Will It Really Last?

Most portable DVD players come with built-in batteries, and manufacturers promise playback times between two and five hours. We decided to test these claims by playing DVDs on loop with the screen set to its maximum brightness. Then, we timed each device to see how long it would play before shutting down. We found a large variety of test results. Some players promised a shorter battery life than they delivered, while a few others could not live up to their promises. The biggest surprise was the Audiovox DS2058, which promises five hours playback time on a full charge but delivered over eight hours during our test.

General Info on Our Testing

Top Ten Reviews seeks, whenever possible, to evaluate all products and services in hands-on tests that simulate as closely as possible the experiences of a typical consumer. We obtained the units in our comparison either on loan from the companies or through retail purchase. The manufacturers had no input or influence over our test methodology, nor was the methodology provided to any of them in more detail than is available through reading our reviews. Results of our evaluations were not provided to the companies in advance of publication.

What Else Is Important in Selecting a Portable DVD Player?

Portable DVD Players: What Features Should You Look For?

Most people who buy portable DVD players will install them in the back seat of their vehicle for the kids to use during trips. Since kids will be the primary users of the device, parents want to set up some basic rules, and parental controls allow you to create usage limitations. If your child is in a booster seat and cannot reach the player, a remote control lets them choose what they want to watch. Also, make sure the player has anti-skipping, so that the DVD will maintain a smooth playback, even over bumpy roads. In order to get the most out of your DVD player, you ll want to set rules for your children to make sure they know how to properly use the devices.

Portable DVD Players: How Will the Manufacturer Support Your DVD Player?

Because portable DVD players have low prices and rely on older technologies, manufacturers offer little support for them. Most players come with a 90-day warranty, although a few will come with up to one year of coverage. In terms of technical support, we look for companies that offer email, phone or live chat contact options.

Best Values in New Cars, 2013


By Jessica L. Anderson | From Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. March 2013

Intense competition means that you’re in the driver’s seat when it’s time to negotiate.

The U.S. auto industry is back. Production lines are humming, a slew of new and redesigned models grace showrooms, and sales of new vehicles are up for the third straight year. Carmakers are competing hard for your business, and that translates into opportunities for you to get a great car at a good price. Vehicles in all price categories are equipped with standard features and technology once reserved for luxury nameplates. Many carmakers also offer cash incentives for buyers new to the brand. And super-low-rate financing is ubiquitous. “Competition results in consumers winning. The selection of vehicles is by far the best they have had,” says Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for TrueCar, an automotive data firm.

SEE OUR SPECIAL REPORT: Best New Car Values, 2013


But with so many options, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. That’s where Kiplinger’s buyer’s guide can help. We sorted the 2013 models by price and category and ranked them for value, performance and safety. In our annual rankings . you’ll find the top models in ten categories, including our picks for Best in Class and Best New Models . We highlight five additional vehicles in each category as Worth a Look; they scored high enough to be in contention for the top awards. Read on to find out what you need to know before you hit the dealership.

Leaner and Greener

Tough new government standards for fuel economy mean manufacturers must find ways to boost mileage while offering plenty of affordable full-size sedans and small SUVs. So, carmakers need to produce lighter vehicles without compromising safety. They need to tweak internal-combustion engines without losing the power that drivers love. And they have to persuade more consumers to switch to electrified vehicles.

A California law that large automakers must have zero-emissions options in their fleets has helped increase the number of fully electric vehicles. The Fiat 500e and Honda Fit EV join the ranks for the 2013 model year, and the Chevrolet Spark EV debuts this summer. But consumers haven’t embraced electrics the way automakers had hoped. High prices, range anxiety (the fear that the battery will die) and a lack of public charging stations are holding down demand. Even the $7,500 federal tax credit doesn’t seem to sway many potential buyers. If you’re in the market for an EV, you’ll likely find dealers willing to haggle.

Plug-in hybrids — gas-engine and electric-motor combos with a battery you can recharge at home — are a more palatable choice. Bill Visnic, senior editor of calls them the sensible green option. The newest models get about 20 miles of electric range and then operate as traditional hybrids, using the electric motor to assist the gas engine and regenerative braking to recharge the battery. They offer better fuel economy than past hybrids: the equivalent of 100 miles per gallon in electric mode, and combined economy in the mid 40s in hybrid mode, without limited range.

Ford will offer two plug-in models in 2013: the Fusion Energi ($39,495) and the C-Max Energi ($33,745). The C-Max is available in 19 markets and will be sold in all 50 states by next year; the Fusion debuts soon. Honda is adding a plug-in model to the Accord lineup ($40,570), but initially it will be sold only in California and New York. All will qualify for tax credits based on their battery size. Ford plug-in buyers are eligible for a credit of $3,751, and Honda Accord buyers can get a credit of $3,334.

It wasn’t high gas prices that prompted Warren Fletcher to trade in his Toyota Prius for a C-Max Energi plug-in. He simply wanted the convenience of “filling up” at home. Fletcher’s daily drives in Tampa rarely take him farther than 20 miles. At home, he plugs the car into a charger he installed in his garage. The self-proclaimed techie loves the brake coaching feature, which tells him how much energy he recaptures each time he comes to a stop. He’s driven more than 1,600 miles and filled up only twice.


The C-Max plug-in is one of a new breed of small, energy-efficient wagons with seating for five and versatile cargo space. It also comes as a traditional hybrid ($25,995). The Prius v hybrid ($27,445) and Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen diesel ($26,335) are other models that offer an alternative to small crossovers. Traditional hybrids and diesels of all sizes will help the automakers’ fuel-economy cause, and more models are coming — more than 40 new hybrids are slated to arrive by 2015. But vehicles with internal-combustion engines will still represent the biggest slice of sales, and automakers are borrowing technology from hybrids and diesels to boost fuel economy .

Automakers are continuing to make strides in quality and safety. J.D. Power found the most improvement in three years in its 2012 Initial Quality Survey. Models from Lexus, Jaguar, Porsche, Cadillac and Honda topped the charts.

Safety is also improving with each new model year. Virtually every vehicle has six airbags standard (front, front-side and head); we award extra points to those that add rear-side and front-knee airbags as standard or optional equipment. Extra points also go to vehicles that earn an overall five-star rating in government crash tests or a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The list of IIHS Top Safety Picks grew from 115 last year to 130 this year. IIHS added a new “small overlap” test to simulate a crash into a tree or telephone pole. Only midsize models were subjected to this new test; the ones that scored well were awarded the designation of Top Safety Pick Plus. The list of honorees includes the redesigned Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima sedans.

Active safety features, such as forward collision warning, which measures the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you and warns you if you’re closing the gap too quickly, have been shown to reduce crashes and are trickling down from luxury cars to more large-volume models. Rearview cameras are standard on half of the 2013 models, according to Edmunds.

Striking a Deal

Average transaction prices hit a record high of $31,228 at year-end-up $542 from the previous year. Some of the increase can be traced to pricey options, such as infotainment systems, and some is due to carmakers’ retreat from cash rebates in a robust sales environment. (Notable exceptions are large trucks and SUVs, which still come with $3,000 cash back.)

Credit is cheap, however, so you’ll find plenty of financing deals. pegs the average rate for 60-month loans at 4.24% at banks and 4.06% at credit unions. Auto­makers are offering 0% on many models, and rates of 2% to 3% on others. In November, 60-month auto loans averaged 2.53% from all sources, according to


Leases aren’t just for luxury cars anymore. Leasing is expected to account for nearly 30% of new-car transactions in 2013, and mainstream automakers, such as Honda and Toyota, are offering stellar deals on models at all prices. Even costly EVs, such as the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt, are quietly being leased for less. Check for deals at .

Before you set foot on a dealer’s lot, do your research on how much others are paying, and don’t forget to factor in your trade. At, which supplies data for our tables, you can compare new-car pricing and incentives, and a price report will show the vehicle’s current average transaction price, as well as a target price and how it compares with the sticker price. To find average transaction prices for your trade-in, go to and use the Appraise Your Car tool . Used cars are still in short supply, so values are high and dealers are eager to get their hands on recent models. “You have more bargaining power than ever before,” says Rebecca Lindland, of IHS Automotive, a forecasting and analytics consultancy.

If you find negotiating with a dealer as appealing as getting a colonoscopy, try a buying service . TrueCar offers no-haggle prices through dealer partners on its Web site. But you’ll likely end up with a better deal using CarBargains, the service of nonprofit Consumers’ Checkbook . For $200, CarBargains will haggle for you, and you’ll receive bids from five local dealers.

Best Used Cars Under 5000 Dollars on Craigslist Cars

I like searching for the best used cars under 5000 on Craigslist cars because this price range gives the buyer a little bit of flexibility with what type of used car they want to purchase.  Cars in the $1000 to $3000 range tend to be commuter cars and buyers tend to choose economy brands, such as, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, and Honda Accords.

When purchasing used cars under 5000, the buyer has the potential to purchase a lightly used luxury car.  Actually, I sold my Infiniti G35 for this price.  Why did I sell it for such a low price? The reason was because I wanted to make a fast sale and Kelly Blue Book was only pricing the car around $6800 in the excellent price range.  My car s 6-disc CD player stopped working, the suspension was squeaky, the seat wobbled a little bit, and the windshield was cracked.  I figured with all those repairs, I should lower the price to $5000.  The good part about the car?  The car only had 147,000 miles on it, it still ran very well and is VERY fun to drive especially when you punch the gas around a curve.  I also had brand new tires and the brake pads were recently replaced.  I d say all in all, my Infiniti priced at $5000 was a bargain.

You d be surprised what type of luxury vehicles you can buy for under 5000.  Using Craigslist Cars Seattle, I browsed the listings and used the built-in filter to search for cars in the 4000 to 5000 dollar price range.  I also searched for luxury cars by keyword and looked for specific luxury cars such as BMW, Audi, Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura.  Here are some of the used autos under 5000 dollars that I found.

1986 Porsche 944 $4500

Awesome! There s a Porsche listed for less than $5000 and it looks like it s still in good condition. This car only has 141,000 miles on it and a lot of parts have been replaced.

2001 Blue Lexus IS 300 $4900

This popular luxury sports car has around 190,000 miles, but still runs like a dream.  The car has new tires, a new paint job and has always been maintained very well.

1998 BMW 323ic Convertible 6-Speed $4500

This car is perfect, except the driver s door won t open from the outside and the interior needs a little work.

White Audi A4 2000 $4400

Car has 144,000 miles on it. The owner says the car has no problems and runs well.

This car has 156,000 miles and has a clean interior, as well as exterior. The owner is getting rid of the car because they need extra cash and can t afford to maintain the car.

If you re looking for a more reliable and less sporty car, then here are some other options for used cars for sale under 5000.  For reliability, low maintenance, and a lot of value for the price; I d recommend the following Craigslist used cars.

Early to late 90 s Volvos are great value cars for their price.  I see Volvo s on Craigslist used cars all the time priced around the $3000-$5000 range.  Of course, you ll have to do some routine maintenance on these cars and foresee the cost of a new timing belt around the 120,000 mile mark.  These cars are very reliable and have an excellent safety rating.  Gas mileage is pretty standard on the Volvo. These cars average 25 miles per gallon.

Dodge Neon s have been around forever and average between $2000-$3000 on Craigslist cars.  The average mileage for this price range is around 110,000 to 130,000.  These cars are comparable to Honda Civics, but have a considerable amount of torque.

Joint venture cars, such as the Geo Prism are nice because they share the same components as the Toyota Corolla at a fraction of the cost.  Check out late 90 s to early 2000 s Prism for reliable cars under the 5000 dollar benchmark.

Lastly, Ford Taurus s have been around forever and I have quite a few friends that have been driving their used Taurus around for over 10 years without any major complications.

Best Used SUV’s Under $5,000

Page 1 of 12

There are people who swear by used cars. For them it makes absolutely no sense to take the depreciation hit all new cars take the moment they are driven off of the dealer s lot. In many ways we see the logic in that, although there are a number of very sound reasons to purchase a new car as well.

That said, one can typically save money going used, particularly if you can afford to pay cash. Of course, there is used and there is used. If you re looking for one of the best used SUVs for under $5000 you ll need to be prepared to go pretty far back in time to get one. No, we don t mean back in time as in fire up the DeLorean, we mean you ll be looking at models from the previous century for the most part.

To assemble this list, we consulted our friends at kelley blue book to find the youngest SUVs out there priced below $5,000. We then considered those models user ratings to find the vehicles with the best reputation for reliability.

Only two of the vehicles on this list hail from the 21 st century, the rest were all built in the last few years of the 20 th Century. With that revelation comes good news and bad news. The good news is that was a time in history when the SUV was experiencing a significant boom in demand, so there should be lots of examples of these vehicles out there for you to choose from. The bad news is, they will almost invariably need work, because of their age.

For this reason, it absolutely behooves you to seek the advice of trusted professional mechanic. Finding a vehicle with fewer than 100,000 miles on it at this price point is going to be nigh impossible. Before you hand over your hard earned cash, get the vehicle inspected for serious mechanical problems. If you re truly lucky, you ll find an auto with all of its service records intact. Although, given the fact most of the vehicle will probably be on their third owner by now

Long story short, if you re considering buying one of these vehicles, make sure you do your due diligence, research them on the web, try to learn all of their potential problem areas, so you ll know what to look for when you go see one of them. You ll also want to research for any potential recalls and do your best to make sure the vehicle you re considering was updated if any recalls were issued for it. And finally, never underestimate the value of a thorough pre-purchase inspection by a mechanic intimately familiar with the make and model you re planning to purchase.

It s a gotta have in this instance.

With that said, here s a list of the best used SUVs you can buy for under $5,000

Best Used Cars Under $5000

For many Americans some form of automobile is more than just a luxury: it is a necessary part of their daily arsenal of accessories. According to the US Census Bureau. the average American has to face an almost half-hour commute one way to get to their place of work or back home every day, and will spend on average nearly 40 hours stuck in traffic per year. People in San Francisco spent a reported 83 hours sitting in traffic not moving in 2013. Combining that time with trips to the grocery store, recreation, and other obligations, and it becomes obvious that for most Americans their automobile is one of the most important items they own. This article will discuss some of the best used cars under $5000.

We are living in a time when the economy is in less than perfect condition. With around 15 percent of our nation living at or below the poverty line. many Americans simply cannot afford to spend a great deal of money on a brand new automobile. More than that, every automobile comes with a whole slew of associated long-term costs, like fuel, maintenance, and of course, insurance. These costs add significantly to the price of a vehicle, and unfortunately for many the trade-off is usually that better reliability and fuel mileage come with higher prices.

So, what can a budget-conscious (or economically constrained) individual in need of a new automobile do? The answer is, obviously, to delve into the used/pre-owned vehicle market. Yet, even when looking at pre-owned vehicles or, perhaps, even more so than when looking at new ones finding a balance between price and reliability is often frustrating. Vehicles that are easily obtainable for cheap are often times cheap for a reason, whether that be poor condition, poor performance, or just general low appeal to secondhand buyers.

Looking through the thousands of pre-owned cars on the market and trying to find one that both fits your budget in the short term and won t break the bank in the long run can be a huge hassle, but with a little forethought and planning, finding a reliable, fuel-efficient vehicle for cheap can be done.

Why Used Cars Under $5000?

For the purposes of looking at pre-owned vehicles, five thousand dollars is often considered a great place to start your budget. Five thousand dollars gives you enough ceiling to open up a lot of relatively recent pre-owned vehicles for consideration, which can be important when considering fuel economy and reliability.

While trucks and SUVs are often popular vehicles, the best reliability and fuel economy can often be found in the pre-owned car market. Not only are trucks and SUVs more often than not less fuel efficient than compact cars and sedans, but drivers have a tendency to put them through a lot more adventuresome driving than your average family car will see. This makes pre-owned cars the best place for a shopper to look when trying to find a solid investment in their transportation future.

Eight Cars Under $5000

While it is true that there are literally hundreds if not thousands of cars to choose from, even at the five grand price limit, not every car is made the same. You can visit dozens of sites looking for the best vehicles available in nearly any price range, and every site will give you a different list of recommendations. Despite this, there are a few standbys that nearly every list will include due to their universally accepted excellence for their price point.

In no particular order, here are eight of the most recommended used cars under five thousand dollars:

2005 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback

2001 Honda Civic Coupe

2003 Volvo S40 Sedan

2000 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan

2000 Honda Accord Sedan

2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible

2002 Toyota Corolla Sedan

2002 Chevrolet Prizm Sedan

Price:  between $3000-$3500

Why it is recommended:  The Prizm is, for the most part, a Toyota Corolla re-branded with the Chevrolet logo. As such, many of the concerns and advantages associated with the Corolla also apply to the Prizm. The Prizm is considered to be somewhat less common to find, but was also less popular than the Corolla, helping to keep its price low.

Beyond The Car

Our list above is a great place to start for buyers looking for a good price on a reliable vehicle, but a smart consumer will always take the time to look beyond a vehicle’s make, model, and year to make sure they are getting the best deal possible. Whether shopping on a budget or picking up a long-time dream, keeping an eye on every aspect of any car you purchase can be vital to getting the best deal possible.

There is more to purchasing a pre-owned car than simply finding the right car at the right budget. Not all used cars are created equal, and the more time that has passed between a car’s release and when you purchase it the more opportunities other drivers have had to abuse or mistreat it. Often times simple wear and tear can lead to an otherwise well-kept car being problematic within months of being purchased at no fault to either the original owner or the person who took it of their hands.

For savvy buyers, there are a few features you can look for when purchasing a pre-owned car that can help to not only protect you against problems, but sometimes can even help to keep your insurance rates on the car as low as possible.

The first item that can help the most is also one of the most problematic: checking to see if the vehicle has been manufacturer re-certified. When a manufacturer recertifies a used vehicle, that means that they believe the vehicle to be up to their standards of quality in terms of part life and expected vehicle lifespan as a whole. Manufacturer recertified vehicles will often offer manufacturer’s warranties despite being pre-owned, a feature that many insurance companies appreciate and will take into account when considering your insurance premiums.

The problem with manufacturer recertification is twofold. First of all, though not a bad thing, manufacturer recertification is not a simple process of calling up the vehicle’s manufacturer and having them approve it. Manufacturer recertification takes time and some investment on the seller or retailer’s part, and as such will usually only be found on vehicles purchased from either certified retailers or high-capacity resellers. When dealing with either smaller lots or individuals looking to sell their personal vehicle, manufacturer recertification is virtually off the table.

The second problem with manufacturer recertification is vehicle age. Many manufacturers will only offer recertification on vehicles within the last four to six model years of production, meaning that older vehicles including all of those on our list are typically no longer able to receive manufacturer recertification regardless of quality.

All hope is not lost when it comes to used cars without recertification, though. Beyond manufacturer recertification there is also dealer certification or recertification, by which the dealer who sells the vehicle gives their own assurance to the vehicle’s quality and reliability. While dealer certification does not carry the same weight as manufacturer recertification when it comes to many considerations, it has the distinct advantage of being easier to obtain, and when it comes to consumer experience can often offer most, if not all, of the same advantages dealer recertification conveys.

Beyond recertification, the next major important feature a buyer should look into when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is accident records. Checking a vehicle’s VIN against accident databases such as Carfax  can give a prospective buyer a great deal of information on the history of a vehicle, much of which will reflect on the vehicle’s reliability and safety. If a vehicle has been in a major accident, even if it has been rebuilt, overall reliability is likely to suffer, and in some cases an accident history can raise insurance rates on the vehicle even if the driver who owned the vehicle at the time of the accident is no longer in ownership.

3, 2, 1, Go

Just because you are shopping for a vehicle on a tight budget does not mean you have to sacrifice either safety or efficiency when doing so. The economy may be tight at the moment, but with a little time and effort, and foreknowledge on your side, even the most cash-strapped of car buyers can find a vehicle that fits their budget and  their needs. The vehicles we have included in our list are all great examples of reliable cars that can be purchased on a budget, but they are only a drop in the bucket when it comes to all the makes and models available on the market. Take the time to do your research on any vehicle you find, and look for those with strong safety records as a model and clean bills of health as individual units, and you can save yourself a lot of time and money at the dealer, at the pump, at the insurance company, and beyond.

Once you ve narrowed your search, call your insurance agent for a quote for particular makes and models to get exact insurance pricing.

​Blue Book Value Calculator (Kelley) Car Pricing

By: Jennifer Hong

Staff Reporter

Aug, 21, 2013

Blue Book Value Calculator. The Blue Book started in 1918, also known as Kelley Value, as a calculator for used cars. It s where most car dealerships use to price the current value on used vehicles.

Kelley s Blue Book has grown to become the automotive industry standard when calculating and pricing vehicles. Most dealerships use the value to determine your trade in amount when buying a new car. It s also the estimated value to use if you are selling a used vehicle.

In 1918 Kelley Kar Company was started by Les Kelley with 2 Ford Model T’s and one employee who was his younger, 13 year old, brother. After he started circulating lists for what cars he wanted to buy at what prices his list started to become industry standard in the LA area. in 1926 the first official regional Blue Book was published and after the war when car demand rose the book when national.

The book remained a trade publication until 1993 until a consumer book was published and their website has been running since 1995. Almost every dealer in the United States base used car valuations on pricing. The easiest way to get access to a calculator is to visit Kelley s official website.

If you have an iPhone, there are a few apps you can download from the Apple Store. If you are selling a used car, the Blue Book value is to be used as an estimate. Repairs and restorations add more to the value of your vehicle.

Beware of Auto Warranty Scams #car #insurance #comparison #sites

Beware of Auto Warranty Scams

The FCC Consumer Center noticed an increase in complaints and inquiries from consumers who received calls about renewing their automobile warranties. During the calls, which are usually automated or pre-recorded, the consumer is told that the warranty on his or her automobile is about to expire and is instructed to press a number to renew it. The callers often pose as representatives of a car dealer or manufacturer, and may or may not have specific information about the consumer’s particular car and warranty.

Many of these calls may violate FCC Do-Not-Call rules. Many may actually be fraudulent—if you press a certain number or stay on the line, you may be asked to provide several types of personal information, including your credit card number, which can be used to defraud unwary consumers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed suit in federal court against companies suspected of making these calls. The FCC also investigates potential violations of FCC rules, and some states and telephone companies have sued companies that make these types of calls.

The FCC’s Rules

If you have placed your residential wired telephone number or your personal wireless phone number on the National Do-Not-Call list and you receive one of these calls, from anyone other than a business that sold you the car or repaired it, that call may violate the FCC’s Do-Not-Call rules. In addition, if you receive one of these calls on a wireless device, and the call is pre-recorded or placed using an autodialer, it may also violate the FCC’s rules unless you have given your prior consent to be called. Also, anyone making a telephone solicitation call to your home number must provide his or her name, the name of the person or entity on whose behalf the call is being made, and a telephone number or address at which that person or entity can be contacted. If the call is a pre-recorded message, it must include a contact telephone number. The call violates FCC rules, without these disclosures

If you have caller ID, a telemarketer is required to transmit or display its phone number and, if available, its name or the name and phone number of the company for which it is selling products. The display must include a phone number that you can call during regular business hours to ask that the company no longer call you. This rule applies even if you have a previously established business relationship with the company, and even if you have not registered your home phone number(s) on the national Do-Not-Call list.

For complete information on all the FCC’s rules regarding telephone solicitations, see our consumer guide about Unwanted Telephone Marketing Calls.

What to Do If You receive an Auto Warranty Call

First, do not provide any personal information, such as social security numbers, credit card information, driver’s license numbers, or bank account information to the caller. Telephone scammers are good at what they do and may imply that they work for a company you trust. Second, if you have certain information about the call or caller, you can file a complaint with the FCC. In some cases, the FCC can issue warning citations and impose fines against companies violating or suspected of violating the do-not-call rules, but the FCC does not award individual damages.

How to File a Complaint with the FCC

You must include your name, address, contact information and as much detail about your complaint as possible. To file a complaint, please visit You can also file your complaint with the FCC’s Consumer Center by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) for TTY; or writing to:

Big Scale Model Cars and Truck Kits. #car #loan

#model cars

There have always been model kits that are big scale. While I doubt they are as popular as small kits, say 1/25 or so, they do offer more room for detailing. This also makes any modifications you do magnified, easier to see and appeciate.

With a growing population of modelers that are older (and our eyesite isn’t what it used to be), larger kits are becoming more popular than ever before. It makes it easier for us to actually see what we’re building, without using tweezers and a magnifying glass to add that tiniest of model parts to the build.

Airfix, Revell, AMT, MPC, Round2, Lindberg, all have been bringing out larger kits, wherether it’s a new tool (Revell’s GT500 Mustang) or something older (such as the Lindberg Hot Rods), there’s a kit for every kind of builder and subject. Tamiya is a big producer of large scale kits and have been for many years. Most of them in 1/12 scale.

Big scale models range from cars, trucks, hot rods, tanks, motorcycles, engines, even aircraft. Do they cost a little more than the smaller kits? Of course. But you tend to get a lot of bang for the buck. You also get some subjects that may never be made in a smaller scale kit. And let’s face it, the big scale models really catch the eyes of everyone, they’re quite impressive on the model table or your model shelf at home. Talk about the WOW factor!

Probably the biggest draw back is, where do you display the large scale model once you’ve assembled it?

I also feel that large scale kits, especially cars, give you that big look to them. Meaning, they look so much more like the real thing because of their size. Again, they make an impressive statement, even to folks who may not be a modeler, but can appreciate the easy to see details and hard work you have into them.

Big scale models are usually 1/12 (a scale that’s also popular with motorcycle models, and some figure kits), 1/16 (some figure kits are this scale too), 1/8 (a really large scale, and popular with figures), 1/18 (the same as the popular diecast scale), and the huge 1/6 scale (made more common now because they work well with 12 inch figures). There are a few other odd ball scales for models, but these are the most common when referring to Big Scale .

The kits aren’t for everyone, but they sure are fun to build!

Bookkeeping Basics – How To Record New Car and Remove Old Car

As an accountant and tax specialist for going on 20 years, I have received many phones calls from bookkeepers asking me how to get the new car on the books and the trade-in off. To do so, there are a few other considerations that come into play. Let’s break them down.

The Trade-In Vehicle

By trading in this vehicle, you have sold it. Since you used it to purchase a similar asset, you can roll any gain on the sale into the new asset. Therefore, you need to determine if you have a gain on the sale, and if so, how much that gain is. The gain will be the trade-in value less your “book basis” of the vehicle. For instance, if you were given a $6,000 trade-in allowance for the vehicle and it had a $2,000 book basis, the gain on its sale would be $4,000.

What is the book basis of the vehicle? To determine this you need to know the original depreciable basis of the vehicle and the accumulated depreciation on it. If you bought the vehicle more than six years ago and used MACRS to depreciate it, you should not have any remaining basis. It should be fully depreciated. If you have had the vehicle fewer than six years but elected to take a Section 179 deduction the year you purchased it, you probably have no remaining basis. Once you have determined your basis, figuring your gain is simple.

The New Vehicle

Have your purchase document for the new vehicle handy to get the asset set up properly. The first thing you need to determine is the total cost of the new vehicle. Many people ask whether the sales tax should be recorded separately as an expense or included in the purchase price. The answer is the latter. The licensing, sales taxes, extended warranties, or other add-ons should all be included in the total purchase price. However, you need to reduce the total sales price by rebates or other discounts. To proceed to recording the new asset, you need to know the total amount financed and the total down payment in addition to the information discussed above. These can also be found on the purchase document for the new vehicle.

The Journal Entry

Let’s Assume:

  • Old vehicle depreciable cost: $9,000
  • Old vehicle accumulated depreciation: $8,000
  • New vehicle total cost: $21,000
  • Trade-in allowance: $3,000
  • Total down payment: $5,000
  • Total financed: $13,000

Here is the journal entry:


  • Accumulated Depreciation – Old Vehicle $8,000
  • Fixed Assets – New Vehicle – $19,000


  • Fixed Assets – Old Vehicle $ 9,000
  • Loan Payable – New Vehicle 13,000
  • Cash 5,000

Notice that that new vehicle has a basis of only $19,000. This is because the total cost of $21,000 has been reduced by the gain on the trade-in vehicle. Its book basis was $1,000 and it was “sold” for $3,000. Therefore, it was sold at a gain of $2,000. Instead of recognizing a $2,000 gain on the sale of assets, we can roll that gain into the new vehicle by reducing its basis. You will want to note this in your journal entry notes to create an audit trail. An alternative would be to debit the new fixed asset $21,000 and then credit the same asset for $2,000, noting that the $2,000 is the rolled over gain on the trade-in.

Be aware if you are using a General Ledger program with a Fixed Asset module, it may be set up to retain the traded in vehicle and finish depreciating it even though it is gone. Refer to the program’s manual for instructions on how to properly tie the trade-in to the new asset.

Notice that every account involved in the sample journal entry is a Balance Sheet account. The Income Statement is completely unaffected by it. The expenses will be taken in the form of Depreciation Expense and Interest Expense paid on the loan.

Recommended Reviews for Boston Car Keys, Inc.

I was on vacation to come back home trying to figure out where my car keys are at. Couldn t find them did little research online called about 8 to 10 places most of them sounded sketchy ( the price is. but if the technician has to do extra work then it s gonna be extra money. I m like WHAAT. I called Boston Car Keys by far they had the BEST PRICE, customer service and professionalism. The technician came mad fast in like 10 to 15 min his name is OSCAR he was mad nice, quick and professional I appreciate the very nice job you did OSCAR. Thank you Boston Car Keys for the great service. I do recommend this business for anyone who wants GREAT Service and Price.

This is a great place to have auto keys made. The shop is clean, neat and organized. I messaged the owner on Yelp. He responded promptly and I made an appointment to get an extra key made. The price way much better than the dealers estimate with a much quicker turnaround time. Excellent all around.

ROTD 8/21/2015

The last key to my mom s 2006 Nissan Altima was lost while shoveling in the blizzard of 2015. We may find it in April whole or mangled by the snowblower, yo no se! So through a fellow yelper I contacted BCK. Santiago who answered the phone was professional and asked the basic info location, year make/model and what needed to be done. Quoted the tech would be there in 3-4hrs.

Pepe, the tech arrived exactly as quoted around 630PM, he even called when he was on his way. He finished the new key with transponder an hour later. My only gripe was he ran out of #4 keys and couldnt complete the order of two. He got on the phone with Santiago who said I could come into the shop another time for a spare. Which doesnt work for me since its out of the way, then Pepe said he ll call me within two days when  hes in the area to cut another key.

There was a slight misunderstanding with the final price, as a transponder is $40 more and the additional key would have cost $65. In the end we found middle ground on the price at $150.

I think they re an awesome 4 stars only because he wasn t prepared to complete my order of two keys and didnt mention it until the end. They were courteous and professional the whole experience. Hopefully I dont need to but would definitely use them again or recommend.

*Willing to change review to  5 stars if they really come back  to make the spare.

    Budget Car Insurance

    Having automobile coverage is made a requirement by most states in the U.S. and nowadays most people try to cut down on expenses anywhere they can due to their budget, including their policies. This is a smart move especially compared to making the mistake of cancelling a policy or even decreasing the amount of protection one needs.

    Compare and find budget auto insurance quotes:

    currently insured?

    yes no

    Finding budget car insurance can be done with just a few clicks of a mouse. By completing an online form, visitors will be provided with multiple rates from top rated companies. This process takes only a few minutes and can help find the cheapest insurer for a particular individual who may be budgeting. Getting free quotes is easy and requires no obligation to buy. One can also compare different types of protection to see what they can afford. By doing so, a person may be pleasantly surprised to see that extra coverage may not be out of reach.

    The following are a few tips to use when comparing quotes to help find budget auto insurance:

    Some states require motorists to have Uninsured Motorist protection. Whether or not a person s required to have this type of coverage it should be taken into consideration. This helps pay for bodily injuries to the policyholder and/or their passengers in the event that they are struck by a driver who does not have a policy, has inadequate limits or if they are victims of a hit-and-run. Trying to stay within a certain price range is the goal of most consumers, but it is unwise to give up needed protection in order to find a cheap carrier. The best policies are considered by most to be the ones which cover all of a person s risks at the fairest rate. Comparison shopping will help find the right provider and coverage that fits an individual s particular budget.

    Budget UK – Car Hire Alicante Airport #car #title #loans

    #car hire alicante

    Explore Alicante with Budget Car Hire

    Hire a car with Budget to explore Benidorm

    Costa Blanca’s Alicante Airport is a starting point for many travellers around Spain s coast. With cheap car rental, you can travel to places such as Benidorm, Denia or Calpe.

    These three locations are very popular with tourists. Benidorm is 45 kilometres from Alicante and cheap car rentals are the best way to get there. It is south of Altea and a main attraction of Costa Blanca

    Benidorm may traditionally be known for its skyscrapers, but it also boasts great beaches and a high-energy nightlife. It is a place for young married couples or college students on holiday.

    Here in Benidorm there’s both mountains and water to enjoy, with the 1558 meter peaks rising behind you if you stand on the beach to look out at the magnificent ocean. Depending on the time of year, the north winds can be a little cool but in summer Benidorm has a party atmosphere with 1000 restaurants and more than 30 discos.

    Hotels are not scarce here, even if you want to stay for just one night before taking your car back to Alicante. Denia is farther from Alicante by about 85 kilometres. It is to the north-east of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. Denia is certainly famous as a beautiful and attractive holiday town and, although it is relatively small, it is a gateway to Ibiza. If you want to, it is possible to take a ferry with your hire car to Ibiza and come back all in the same day.

    When you rent a car you are able to tour around Denia to locations such as the Castillo. This castle was built in the 11th and 12th centuries and has sea views. It contains the Palau del Governador and a museum for tourists who enjoy a little history and culture. Denia is also known for its shopping on the Calle de Marques de Campo. On the main road it is possible to find a hotel for a night or two, and also bars and restaurants after a long day shopping.

    Whether you stay around Alicante Airport or visit some of the countryside in Costa Blanca, there is plenty to do. With our service you can ensure that you have the flexibility to explore all of the wonders the area has to offer, from the sandy beaches to the old architecture of cathedrals and castles. Car rental makes it possible to see what you wish, when you wish.

    Hiring rental cars in Alicante makes it easy for you to see the coastal city attractions and all its beautiful views. Our cheap car hire allows you to travel along the boulevards lined with palm trees and reach Alicante’s shopping areas, or access a well known location such as Costa Blanca.

    Alicante is known for its sandy beaches that constantly bring in tourists each year. The area is also known for its superb weather and outlying cities, such as those on the island of Tabarca. Our service you will be able to visit Alicante harbour or travel to the long alleys for a relaxing walk.

    Explore Alicante in a Budget rental car

    Alicante is a city with historical buildings throughout, despite some of the modern structures you see upon landing at the Airport. The best way of seeing these architectural gems is to get around the city with a car from Budget.

    In the event that you want to see a little Spanish architecture from past centuries, cathedrals and churches are also hidden throughout the modern buildings making exploration a joy.

    When you are ready, you can stop by the hotel to relax at the sandy beach.

    If your hotel is a few miles away from the beach, a hire car will come in handy to visit the harbour and beaches that go all the way to San Juan.

    You could spend an entire day at the beach getting a little sun, swimming, and walking around the various shops and restaurants.

    We were expecting our second child and were in need of a dependable second car that would fit into our budget. We told Anthony that we need to be at a certain price and we ended up below our set price on our new ford focus.( thanks) everyone in need of a car should go see Anthony at Knox Budget. they are the best.

    Happy customer!

    by Jennifer W. on 10/01/2014

    I must say my experience with Knox Budget was AWESOME! The whole staff welcomed me as if they have known me for years. My salesman, Theo, was the greatest! He is very knowledgeable and not once did he ever pressure me into anything I did not want. Theo took my needs in consideration and exceeded them. I will definitely be referring friends and family here for their next vehicle purchase. I will definitely come back for future purchases. Once again, a big thank you goes out to Theo for making a stressful situation into the most pleasant experience.

    My experience at budget auto sales, was a pleasure. I feel as though David and I have known each other for years. His vehicle knowledge, and customer care are to be recognized. he catered to my families every need. And went the distance to provide quality and assurance until we were able to find a car that was best suitable to me my business and most important my family. I will buy all my future vehicles from this location, and will recommend Budget to everyone I know. On behalf of my family, I personally would like to thank David for everything he has done to assist me in my quality vehicle purchase. and look forward to making my next vehicle purchase through him in the future.

    i have always had a great experiences at budget. I just brought my grandpa up there this last week to get another truck from Jared. If you’re looking for a good vehicle come out and see Jared.

    by carmen.chatman1 on 09/29/2012

    I had an excellent experience. My salesman, Colin, was very knowledgeable and courteous. I had gone to the lot previously when considering purchasing a new car. I was unsure of what I wanted to do. When I returned over a month later, I never felt pressured or rushed and he was just as helpful as before. I had been to several dealerships to weigh my options before returning, and I’m glad I did! I would definitely reccomend this dealership to friends and family. I will be returning in a few months to purchase a car for my daughter! Carmen Chatman

    by julie.barksdale.10 on 07/01/2012

    This was the best car buying experience ever. Matt is a star in my book; the credit dept. worked with us and found financing $50 below the ceiling we gave them, that’s a first. Matt made sure we were totally happy with our purchase, they are fixing a few glitches we noted when driving the car and will not release it to us until we and they are happy. Fantastic !

    #business car insurance

    Think you need business car insurance? Find out how to get the right cover for your needs.

    A standard car insurance policy covers your car for so-called social, domestic and personal use, which includes everyday driving such as visiting friends, the shops or a day out.

    Many policies also automatically cover your car if you commute to and from a regular place of work. So, if you drive the car to the same office every day, or park in the same station car park, you would be insured.

    But what if you drive to several different offices or work sites? Perhaps a colleague regularly takes your car to visit clients. Or maybe you drive hundreds of miles a week for business purposes. If so, you will almost certainly need business car insurance. It is often more expensive than standard motor insurance, but it is important to get the right cover for your needs.

    Higher premiums

    Business car insurance is typically more expensive than standard cover because a motorist who drives a vehicle for business as well as pleasure is deemed more risky. They will usually cover more miles, sometimes in heavy traffic and on unfamiliar roads. The chances of a claim therefore increase.

    Don’t be tempted to lie in an attempt to bring down the cost of insurance. When you apply for business car insurance quotes, the insurer will ask the usual questions about your age, postcode, and the make and model of the car.

    But you will also have to give details about your business and when and why you drive the vehicle for work. If you are dishonest, you are committing an offence and it could invalidate your policy. Your insurance would not then pay out in the event of a claim.

    Different classes of business car insurance

    There are different classes of business car insurance cover, though the details can differ between insurers so you should always check the terms and conditions carefully. For example, if you commute to work in your car, make sure it is covered under the definition of social domestic and pleasure, or you will need to arrange additional cover.

    You will probably need class 1 business use if you drive your car to multiple sites or offices, as well as your usual place of work

    You will probably need class 1 business use if you drive your car to multiple sites or offices, as well as your usual place of work. Most insurers also include a spouse on this type of policy, but would not insure the car for business use for any other named driver.

    The next level of business car insurance generally covers the policyholder and a named driver who uses the car to travel between different sites. Someone who travels extensively in the car for work will almost certainly need class 3 business use.

    Commercial car insurance

    Business car insurance is not the same as commercial car insurance, which is aimed primarily at motorists who use their car for commercial purposes such as a taxi or to make deliveries. Again, it is important to remember that the definitions of the different classes differ between insurers.

    A car used for business is also not the same as a company car. If you drive a company car, it should be insured by the company that owns or leases the vehicle.

    Find cheap business car insurance quotes

    Motorists usually pay more for business car insurance so it is especially important to try to keep costs down. One way to save money is to compare quotes from a number of different insurers – and it’s easy with MoneySuperMarket’s online car insurance comparison service.

    You can also choose their vehicle with care. Insurers place cars in one of 50 groups – and cars in group one tend to be the cheapest to insure.

    Security is another important factor as a secure car is less likely to be stolen. You can often reduce your premium if you fit an approved alarm and immobiliser – and keep your car in a locked garage overnight.

    Insurers reward careful drivers with lower premiums, so try not to claim unless the damage is serious. You can then build up a no claims discount and potentially cut the cost of cover by as much as 75%.

    No one wants to pay over the odds for business car insurance but it is also important to remember that the cheapest policy is not always the best. You might, for example, want to pay a little bit extra for more extensive cover.

    Find out about Ford s History

    If there is one company in the world that has dominated the automotive industry over the past 100 years, then that company is Ford. Founded in 1902 by Henry Ford in Detroit, Michigan, the first car to be produced by them was the Model A and the first vehicles they produced were seen as being high on the price scale, even during a time when only the wealthy owned automobiles.

    It was in 1908 that Ford really came to the notice of the world though, as this was the year that the Model T was born. 1908 saw only a few cars every day built in the factory in Detroit, but the demand for them far outstripped the rate at which they could be built. To counter this, Ford became the first car manufacturers in the world to develop a production line for their cars – something that allowed them t0 produce over 1,000,000 Model T cars per year by 1920.

    Even before this production line, Ford had started to expand away from the US market and into other areas of the world – most notably into Europe. With plants opening in a multitude of different countries they were starting exert control over the market throughout the world. Such was their grip that by 1919 Ford produced 50% of all cars in the United States and 40% in Great Britain; half the cars on the streets of the United States were also Model Ts as well by 1920.

    During the Second World War, Ford switched their attention to the production of military vehicles – for both the Allies and the German army. This was because Henry Ford had worked closely with the German government prior to the War, creating a number of factories there. After Pearl Harbor though he was also forced to contribute to the American war effort, producing Jeeps for the American military, as well as aircraft in huge amounts.

    Throughout the years after the War, Ford continued to expand, even after Henry Ford died in 1947. They were influential in the increase of safety in automobiles during the 1950s and also introduced the Ford Thunderbird – an icon to many Ford fanatics – during this century. This was followed up by the equally impressive Falcon in 1960 and revered Mustang in 1964.

    From the 1960s to the present day there have been a slew of influential and memorable cars released by this bastion of the motor industry. The Ford Escort, Capri, Mondeo, Fiesta, Focus, Granada and Sierra are all cars that filled the roads in their eras and are still seen in numbers today. They also own the Lincoln company and have recently sold their interests in Land Rover, Jaguar and Volvo. Whether you love them or loath them, one thing can’t be disputed: Ford have contributed as much as anyone to the development of the automotive industry!

    Buying a New Car

    • Negotiate the price. Find out the invoice price (lowest price) of the model and the options you want at Internet sites like www.nadaguides and Negotiate up from the invoice price, not down from the sticker price. Markups from the invoice price vary from model to model and dealer to dealer. Visit several dealerships and compare their final sales quotes to get the best price.
    • What is your car worth? If you are replacing an existing car, determine its resale value online or at your local library, bank or insurance agency. You might get more for your car if you sell it yourself. If you plan to trade it in, negotiate the best price on the new car you plan to purchase before you negotiate the trade-in amount
    • Don t be pressured. Don t sign a contract or pay a deposit unless you are ready to make the purchase. If you aren t ready, tell the salesperson you need time to consider the offer. If the salesperson continues to pressure you, leave.
    • Understand the contract. Loan terms are often complex. They may include extra fees that make it hard to determine your actual cost. If the deal is being financed by the auto dealership or a lender solicited by the dealer, make sure the contract states the interest rate, also known as the annual percentage rate (APR). It should also contain everything you and the dealer have agreed upon. Don t rely on verbal promises, and never sign a contract that contains blank spaces.
    • Remember, the contract is binding. Make sure the contract states that you can void the agreement and get your down payment back if the dealer does not meet any part of the agreement. Unless the contract specifically says otherwise, you can t cancel it once you and the dealer have signed it.
    • Assistance is available. Many consumers feel at a disadvantage when negotiating with car dealers. To address this problem a new breed of car buying services has emerged. Credit unions, AAA, Costco and other businesses and organizations offer various types of car buying assistance to their members. These services, which work best with frequently-purchased cars that are commonly found in dealers inventories, can save consumers time, money and aggravation.

    Remember that the dealer must maintain the dealer s tags and insurance on the vehicle until the purchase transaction is finalized.

    Used Car Value, Buying New Car or Preowned Auto – Ask Sid – AARP Bulletin #japanese #car #imports

    A shortage is driving values up, but the deal may go to the dealers


  • 9 ways to save on cars. Read
  • Products promise to improve gas mileage. Read

    Used gas-sipping compacts between one and five years old are particularly prized: They were worth about 30 percent more in June than just six months earlier, notes the National Auto Auction Association.

    The higher prices are due to the law of supply and demand. The recession that began in 2007 caused a big dip in new-car sales, meaning that today there are fewer late-model used vehicles on the market. And continuing hard times mean that people tend to keep their cars longer, rather than selling them used.

    So in theory, you should be getting more for a trade-in. But dealers are in business to make money and may try to capture the increased value for themselves.

    I recently got a mailing informing me that my two-year-old Toyota was worth more than ever. But when I stopped by the dealer to ask what that meant, I got an offer nearly $2,000 lower than its trade-in value as estimated by Edmunds. And based on the windshield price of models at that lot, the deal that was offered me would have netted the dealer a mark-up of about $5,000. (Of course, you can dicker on used-car prices just as you can dicker when buying a new car .)

    Which leads us to the marketing ploy part of your question. These mailings, which sometimes offer incentives such as free gift cards just for getting a trade-in quote, are aimed at getting you to visit the lot. There, the scant number and high prices of used cars may sway you to shop new.

    Notes Edmunds: A number of people are researching used cars on our site but then ultimately buy a new car, apparently swayed by the limited used-car inventory that is available and the minimal difference between the prices of lightly used cars and their heavily incentivized new counterparts.

    The bottom line: Do your homework before heading to the dealership. In addition to Edmunds, you can get realistic buying and selling prices at AutoTrader. TrueCar and Kelley Blue Book .

    Used-car purchases often begin with an online advertisement, and, as a result, there are an increasing number of scams involved in online car buying that seek to dupe unsuspecting shoppers.

    The scam typically starts with a used car that is being sold on a reputable website for automotive advertisements. The car is priced below value with some plausible story for the rock-bottom price, according to an IC3 consumer bulletin. Common reasons for the low price include the seller suddenly moving for work or for military deployment, or the seller needs cash quickly because of a job loss or unexpected medical bills.

    Gaining the buyer’s confidence

    The seller increases the buyer’s confidence in the deal by suggesting they use a third-party wire-transfer or escrow service for full or partial payment. To further increase the buyer’s comfort level, often the seller indicates that using this service to facilitate payment offers built-in buyer protection, according to the IC3 bulletin. Buyers believe this because they recognize the third party as a reputable automotive website, but the third party is not actually involved. The used-car buyer is instructed to fax or email his or her wire transfer receipt to the bogus seller to schedule delivery, only the delivery never occurs, and the buyer’s money is gone.

    Reputable companies that have been used by criminals to pull off these online car-buying scams include,, eBay Motors, and Kelley Blue Book, according to IC3 data. These companies, except for eBay Motors, offer no buyer protection services, and eBay Motors’ Vehicle Purchase Protection service only protects buyers whose transactions begin and end on their website.

    “A seller on a completely different site (than eBay Motors) will post a listing for a car that doesn’t actually exist,” says Jack Christin Jr. eBay’s associate general counsel. “The sellers lend credibility to their listing by falsely claiming the sale will be insured by eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Protection, when in fact this protection only exists for sales that start and end on eBay. Finally, the buyer is enticed to wire money for the car through Western Union or a similar service.”

    Similar online car-buying scams have been reported using the names of numerous reputable automotive websites, though car shoppers seem to get duped more often when eBay Motors is cited since it does offer buyer’s protection, albeit only for transactions conducted through eBay, according to an IC3 intelligence report.

    Separating fact from fiction

    Determining fact from fiction isn’t always easy with online car-buying scams since they are often quite elaborate. Often, the escrow services that the bogus seller suggests use variations on the reputable companies’ names. The scams also use website designs that look similar to the legitimate companies’ websites, sometimes even carrying the legitimate companies’ logos, according to the IC3 consumer bulletin.

    Recently, the used-car scams have become even more sophisticated. “Scammers added 800 numbers and live chat with potential buyers to try to ease their concerns and provide more detailed information on the fraudulent buyer protection programs,” says Shayne Brown, associate general counsel for Kelley Blue Book.

    Even with these scams, “buying a car is still generally a very safe practice, and the majority of transactions go off without a hitch,” says Phil Reed, senior consumer advice editor for the auto site Still, Reed advises that online car shoppers use caution when buying a car.

    Start by looking for the warning signs that are common elements of a scam. Those include cars priced below market value as well as sellers who want to do business only online or try to shift the transaction from one website to another, according to IC3.

    Do your due diligence

    When it comes to escrow companies, Reed suggests that buyers do their due diligence if the seller has requested a specific escrow company. “Verify that the escrow company is properly licensed. Find its contact information on your own, not by following a link the seller sends, and call them and speak to a representative,” he says.

    “Find the website through an Internet search engine and send them an email question. If you don’t receive a response, don’t do business with them. If the site displays logos from the Better Business Bureau, VerSign, TRUSTe or any similar organization, verify that they are really endorsed by these groups,” Reed says.

    Other warning signs of an online car-buying scam include when the seller refuses to speak over the telephone, meet in person or allow the buyer to inspect the car ahead of time, according to IC3. For details on the warning signs read “5 red flags to bust a used car-buying scam” on the Bankrate site.

    If you are the victim of a scam, file a complaint at, and if any reputable automotive websites are cited, contact them so their legal departments can add the case to their files.

    Buying a Car

    Buying a car is like jumping into a lake. Without some planning and research into what you might encounter, you could be in too deep before you know it. But if you take the car buying process one step at a time and put some time into researching your purchase and your finances before you stop on the lot, the process is likely to go a lot more smoothly.

    What Can You Afford?

    Before you begin shopping for a car, it’s important to take a look at your budget and figure out how much you can afford to spend on a vehicle, without strapping yourself or cutting into your savings. If you don’t have a budget, click here for information about creating one. Can you afford $200 a month for your new vehicle? What about $300? That number will be the total amount that you can pay for the car itself and operating expenses, like gas and maintenance.

    New Car Dealer

    If you are like most consumers buying a new car, you are probably looking for the perfect car at the right price with little or no hassle. While car buying is sometimes portrayed as stressful and intimidating, it doesn’t have to be. Armed with the right information and tactics, you can find the right car at the right price without having to jump through lots of hoops.

    Why can buying a new car be so difficult? Well, there are many makes and models available, at a wide variety of price ranges. Add to this the high-pressure sales tactics you may encounter at the dealership, and it’s easy to see why buying a car can be so bewildering!

    Well, first things first. Before you even think about heading into a dealership, set some parameters, do some research, and narrow down your choices.

    Before you spend too much time on research, take a good look at your finances and decide how much you are willing to spend. That alone will significantly narrow your choices. Once you have a price range in mind, ask yourself what features you want your new car to have, and rank them in order of importance. For example, if you have a large family, a large car that can carry them all might be at the top of the list. If you live in an area known for bad weather, four-wheel drive might be a priority, while if you spend lots of time on the road you might want something with good gas mileage.

    Once you have set your price range and priorities, it’s time to do a little research! Organizations like Consumer Reports list virtually all vehicles that are currently produced, as well as their prices, safety ratings, reliability ratings, gas mileage, and options. You can save a great deal of time by doing some research before you start visiting dealerships, as it will allow you to focus your choices even more closely.

    Once you’ve gathered all your information, narrow your selections to between three and five makes. If you’ve done all your research, you should know how much each car costs on average, as well as whether they have the potential to meet your needs. Now it’s time to visit the car showrooms!

    Visit the dealerships, and test drive each car. Ask each dealer what the price of the car is before you ask what your trade-in is worth. If there are several dealers that sell the same make within your area, it is worth visiting them all to compare price.

    When at the dealership, try to avoid getting starry-eyed over options you don’t need. While a navigation system is certainly a fun and handy thing to have, don’t add it if it wasn’t on your list of priorities. Once you start looking at cars, it’s easy to go over budget. To avoid this, stick to your guns and only buy things you truly need.

    Once you’ve made your choice, determine the value of your trade-in. Again, if you are visiting more than one dealer, compare what each dealer is willing to give you for trade in. In most cases, you can expect the dealer to give you the vehicle’s wholesale price, which is lower than its retail value.

    Finally, when you have decided on the exact make and model, as well as the dealership, it’s time to arrange your financing. Shopping for a new car can be an enjoyable and interesting experience, and we trust these car buying tips have been helpful. Enjoy your new car!

    California Car Insurance

    California car insurance is required under state law. Learn what average California car insurance rates are for your gender and age based on coverage limits and deductibles, as well as all the details you need to know about car insurance in California.

    California car insurance laws require that you must carry at least $15,000 worth of bodily injury liability coverage for anyone you injure, up to $30,000 per accident, and at least $5,000 to cover property damage. This is commonly shown in this format: 15/30/5.

    California car insurance requirements

    Here are the types of California car insurance you must have:

    • Bodily injury liability: Pays, up to your policy limits, for injuries others receive in an accident caused by you or other drivers listed on your policy. You are required to carry a minimum of $15,000 in bodily injury coverage and $30,000 per accident.
    • Property damage liability: Covers, up to your limits, damage you cause to other cars or property. You must have a minimum of $5,000 property damage liability coverage.

    Here are optional coverages:

    • Collision: Pays for damage to your car from an accident.
    • Comprehensive insurance: Pays to replace stolen cars and for damages to your car from theft, fire, flooding, hail, animal strikes, falling objects and vandalism.
    • MedPay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP): Covers you, your passengers and other authorized drivers of your car who are injured while in your insured vehicle. Both typically also cover you and your family members if you are injured while riding in someone else’s car or if struck by another vehicle while on foot.

    Calculating Sales Tax for a New Car Purchase With a Trade-In

    Your car sales contract will break down how tax is calculated.

    More Articles

    In 42 out of the 50 states, when you trade in a car to purchase a new one, you will get some sort of sales tax credit on the value of your trade. The amount of tax you pay depends on what you are buying, what your trade is worth and your state’s sales tax policies. The dealer will calculate and collect the sales tax, but it does not hurt to check the dealer’s numbers.

    Tax on Net Cost

    Across most of the country, the sales tax you pay on a car purchase at the dealership will be the sales tax rate times the difference between the purchase price and trade-in allowance. The new car cost and trade value will come off the sales contract for the car deal. For example, if you are buying a new car for $25,000 and the dealer is giving you $10,000 for your trade, you will pay sales tax on the $15,000 difference. If sales tax in your state is 8 percent, the tax would be $1,200. Without the trade value sales tax on the purchase increases to $2,000.

    Sales Tax Considerations

    States handle the sales tax rate on car purchases differently from state to state. In some areas, the sales tax rate you pay is the rate in effect where the dealer is located. Other states require that the rate be based on your home address tax jurisdiction. The sales tax will be the same whether you pay cash or finance the purchase with a regular car loan. In most states you do not pay sales tax and do not get a tax credit on your trade-in if you lease the new car.

    Trade-in Value Increase

    Another way to view the sales tax reduction from trading a car — and a favorite view of car dealers — is that the reduced sales tax can be equated to a higher value for your trade-in. If the dealer gives you $10,000 for your trade and trading the car reduces your sales tax bill by $800, you are in effect receiving $10,800 for the car you are trading. If you sold the car on your own, you would not receive the sales tax savings, so would have to sell the car for more than $10,800 to come out ahead of going the trade-in route.

    Massachusetts Lemon Laws

    Massachusetts has laws that protect consumers when buying or leasing a new car. and buying a used car that does not meet expectations. These Lemon Laws require dealers to provide consumers with a written warranty against defects that impair a used vehicle’s use or safety, and require private parties to disclose any known use or safety defects.

    Registration and Insurance

    Separately, residents can apply for new plates or transfer an existing registration to a vehicle gifted by or purchased from a friend or family member. To do so, they will need:

    Once collected, these materials should be taken to the nearest full-service RMV branch office .

    For information on registering recreational vehicles, use resources from the Massachusetts Environmental Police .

    Sales Tax

    Sales tax equal to 6.25 percent of the vehicle’s purchase price is collected when a vehicle is bought from a dealer. In private sales, 6.25 percent of the purchase price or 6.25 percent of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) trade-in value — whichever is higher — is collected on the purchase of any new or used vehicle in Massachusetts. If no clean trade-in value is available, a default value agreed upon by both the RMV and Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) will be used.

    If a vehicle is purchased outside of Massachusetts and sales tax is not paid in another state, sales tax must be submitted to Massachusetts by the purchaser. However, if sales tax was paid to the state of purchase, taxes may still be due to Massachusetts depending on the reciprocity relationship between states. A car purchased from a family member — or received as a gift — may be exempt from sales tax.

    Vehicle Titles

    A title is a document that indicates who has legal ownership of a vehicle. Anyone planning to buy or sell a used car (model year 1981 or newer) must have a title to transfer ownership so the buyer can register the vehicle. Without this, it cannot be registered.

    Vehicles older than model year 1980 purchased by the current owner before November 26, 1990 can be registered without a title, as long as the bill of sale and a copy of the last registration for the vehicle are available.

    Seven-Day Grace Period

    In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90 Section 2 — also known as the Massachusetts Seven-Day Registration Transfer Law — if you transfer ownership or lose possession of a motor vehicle, you have a seven-day grace period to transfer registration to a new vehicle.

    This period begins on the date you transfer ownership or lose possession of the first vehicle and ends at 5 p.m. seven calendar days afterward. For example, if you transfer ownership of your car at noon on July 1, the grace period would end at 5 p.m. July 8.

    To qualify for this grace period the following conditions must be met:

    • You have an active registration and are at least 18 years of age
    • The newly acquired vehicle or trailer must be of the same type and have the same number of wheels as the previous vehicle or trailer
    • You must carry the transfer documents, which show the registration number to be transferred, in your vehicle
    • You have lost possession of or disposed of your previous vehicle
    • The registration plates must be attached to the newly acquired vehicle

    Calculate Auto Accident Settlement #car #hire #london

    #value of a car

    Here’s everything you need to know to arrive at a dollar value for your car accident claim.

    Car accident settlement compensation value depends on two things: the strength of your liability claim and the extent of your damages. This article explains these two key facets of a car accident case, to give you an idea of the settlement value of your claim. (When finished reading this article, use our Car Accident Calculator  to get a ballpark idea on what your accident is worth)

    Strength of Liability Claim

    Unless you are in a no-fault state, you cannot recover money damages unless “liability” exists. The legal term for what you have to show is “negligence,” which means carelessness. In the context of driving, examples of negligence are:

    • not seeing another vehicle that should have been seen
    • following too closely
    • driving too fast for the circumstances (weather, visibility)
    • making an unsafe turn
    • disobeying traffic signals or signs, and
    • talking on the phone/texting while driving

    In the most common type of accident, a rear-ender, the tailing driver is usually deemed negligent because he or she wasn’t paying sufficient attention and didn’t keep a safe distance between vehicles. Hopefully you carried out the proper steps after a car accident.

    What if the other driver was negligent, but you were too? If the other driver was negligent, but you were also driving in a careless manner, your claim is completely defeated (in some states) or at least reduced (in most states). To understand how the different rules work, and how your claim might be affected, read about Comparative and Contributory Negligence .

    Extent of your Damages

    Assuming that liability exists, the only remaining question is, how much are you entitled to recover as compensation for your injuries? There are three commonly used methods of determining accident settlement value in routine car accident cases:

    1.  Colossus.

    2.  Multiple of specials.

    3.  Per diem.


    Most of the top insurance companies use a software system called Colossus (or something like it) to determine car accident settlement value.  Insurance companies believed to use Colossus include Aetna, Allstate, CNA, Erie, Farmers, Metropolitan, Ohio Casualty, The Hartford, MetLife, Travelers, USAA and Zurich. And many of the other insurance companies use some other form of injury valuation software. You won’t be able to use the Colossus system, but you have to know that it exists and how it works in order to discuss settlement with the insurance claims adjuster. Learn much more about Using Colossus Software to Calculate Settlement Value.

    Multiple of Specials

    Under this method, to determine accident settlement value, you add these elements of damage together:

    1.  Medical bills.

    2.  Lost income.

    3.  Pain and suffering damages.

    The insurance company may challenge the amount of medical bills and lost income that you claim. (Learn more about successfully negotiating with insurance adjusters ) They may claim that some of your medical bills were for unnecessary treatment or that the charges are unreasonably high, or they may contend that your claim for lost income is excessive or not supported by the medical records. Usually, these defense claims are weak. If you got the treatment recommended by your health care providers and missed only the work that your doctors said you needed to miss, you should be able to recover all of your medical bills and lost income. The much more difficult question to answer is, how much are you entitled to recover for your pain and suffering?

    Read How to Calculate Pain and Suffering Damages  to learn about auto accident injury settlements and compensation.

    A note on no-fault states:  As you have probably already figured out, these methods of determining accident settlement value do not apply to no-fault systems, which do not compensate for pain and suffering. To understand how no-fault rules work, see No-Fault Car Insurance and State Laws: The Basics .
