There are tons of great deals out there for used cars. Depending on your budget, you can spend a lot or a little and have a great car. Craigslist is a good place to search for a used car. The car we have now, we found on Craigslist. It had only 30,000 miles on it and had been garage parked since new in '95. It has been a great little car. We could afford to pay cash for this one. Also, being used and paid for, we only need to cover it with liability, which is way cheaper than full insurance. We may spend more for our next one. But we will still get used. It's just a better way to go.
