Hey guys, my first car died last week.... it was a 1999 mazda protege.

 

So I need a new one... We already have an 2010 V6 Outlander for the family and I need a small, fuel efficient, cheap car to go to work every day (12 km total traveling each day)

 

I'm thinking about the KIA rio 5 2013 hatchback:

 

Kia Rio 5 doors 2013

 

The Yaris 2013 hatchback :

 

yaris 5 doors 2013

 

Or the ford Fiesta 2013 hatchback : 

 

fiesta 2013 hatchback

 

I want to buy it, that's why I'm mostly looking for model around 15K$ at 60 month 0% interest payment are around 275-300$ a month so it's in my target.

 

What you guys think ?

 

Thx,

GTA V FTW !

Do you have a family?

 

If so I would go with the Focus since its 4 door.

 

If not then go with the Kia I think it looks better than the Yaris

yeah, I got 3 kids that's why we have a V6 2010 Mitshubishi Outlander with 7 seats as our main family transportation vehicle ...

 

All of those model listed above have 4 doors plus the hatchback (so 5 doors), Maybe not the yaris picture, but the model I'm looking to buy have 4 doors plus the hatchback which is also good for the family, I personally like the RIO 5 better but wanted to see if you guys have anything to say to help me on my decision or to state problems you faced on those models...

GMC/Chevy has great Utility vehicles such as the Denali(gas guzzler) and the Cadillac ATS.

 

Look on their website; they tell you the price and interest

Ok Since you got the Outlander as a family car...

 

It might be a little higher but I am guessing you dont want a used car.

 

I like the CRZ you could probably find a used one for like 19

 

Or the Hybrid (Save Gas)

yeah I want a brand new 2013 cheap sub-compact car that will last, I hope, as long as my first car i got when I started working ... (13 years ago !!) 

 

in fact this will be my second car (if you dont count the Mithsubishi one since I bought it with my wife)

I dont want to deal with a second hand vehicle.

 

Hybrids and electric cars are awesome, in fact I wanted my second car to be fully electric but it's still too expensive, that's why I'm looking for a 1.4 L fuel efficent engine...

I agree. Used cars are the worst, i've had bad stuff happen to mine and other people's vehicles that I know. In reality used cars are just problems passed on to others
