Value For This Economy
December 7, 2018
I wanted to buy a used Mini Cooper, But area dealers seem to have a price lock on the used market. My second choice was a Fiat. While I would have preferred an automatic transmission, I came across the car that is now mine. A 5 speed Convertible. I'm 6'4" and people cant believe I can get in and out of this car effortlessly. Acceleration, steering response and braking are all excellent. The drivers armrest is the only downside, mine broke off and all I have is the metal attachment in my seat that stabs my arm every day. A different center console design could easily fix this obvious design flaw. If you buy new for short term you will take a huge depreciation, think long term. I bought used and plan on driving it for at least 6 years.
