Buying a used car is a great experience. They often surprise buyers with optional extras, features and additional luxuries thrown in with little extra cost to the buyer.
It’s always more advantageous buying from a trusted dealer when searching for a second hand car because we can ensure only the best quality is on offer. We also know the market well and which vehicles represent the best value. Here are three of our top picks:
Ute: 2011-2013 Ford Ranger
Ford’s most recent redesign was actually created and manufactured right here in Australia. The robust vehicle offers much of the practicality and off-road capability of the legendary F-150 but in a more compact, fuel-efficient package.
The ranger has proven itself worthy of Australian conditions over reliable long-term tests and as such reviewers have praised the ute’s build quality and rugged body.
Because of its consumer success the Ranger has also been adopted by the UK military because of its capabilities on and off road. It is actually set to be the base of the new Ford Everest SUV.
Sedan: 2001-2013 Hyundai Elantra
The Hyundai Elantra was first redesigned in 2001, then again in 2007. Both versions increased the amount of quality expected from an entry-level brand. The peppy engine was complemented by journalists and consumers alike. Many available features also stepped up what the car could offer without putting a dent in your wallet.
Used models are relatively inexpensive, despite offering many features previously only seen in luxury brands. The wagon in particular offers a large amount of versatility in an affordable package.
SUV: 2001-2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
No matter which version you buy, the Outlander offers the best of both worlds; a car-like ride and smoother suspension, coupled with the practicality of a large cargo area and fold-down seats. Some models can even be found with a third-row seat, making room for all your family members.
Whether you are in the market for a ute, sedan, or something in the middle, you can find quite a deal when you search for used cars in Perth. Would you choose one of these, or do you have a personal favourite vehicle model and year that has proven itself to you from years on the road?
