All 4 are decent cars for the type of car you are buying.

Personally I would say get the Ford for overall value and versatility.  I think its the best one of the bunch.   

 

Just an FYI I am a mechanic who mostly does custom car modifications so I at least have SOME knowledge on cars Smiley Wink.    

 

I see you bought the Hyandai though, those are good too...the newer ones anyway!

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 :

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,


Never, Buy a Toymotor!  Worst car maker ever!  Number one on Consumers report do not buy list ever year.  Need more?  Ok

My pick would be the Ford Fiesta 2013.

Darn, I was hoping that I would get to know another Veloster owner.

This Veloster is mine:

MyV

I've already logged over 10,000 miles on it in its first 11 months. I still love mine as I did right from day one, except for the useless in 4 inches of snow Kumho solus tires.

You do know that Consumer Report is VERY biased right? They're articles also prompted Honda to do an "emergency facelift" on the Civic because they didnt like how it looked.... except every other car review magazine praises the Civic....
I've seen MANY MANY, GOOD CARS get poor marks by Consumer Reports....

To me it seems Consumer Reports keeps the lights on by taking bribes to downplay other cars from the competition.
Heck, they've ranked some of the WORST cars, on their top 10 cars to buy.....

I mean, just because anything from Toyota is on their "Do Not Buy" list, still doesn't stop people from making the Corolla, Camry, Rav4, Prius the best selling cars.... particularly the Corolla and Camry listed by MANY as the best cars of all time.

Also, they're the most reliable vehicles on the planet.....

I wouldn't rely on Consumer Reports ever, if I were you.... Theres plenty other magazines who give an unbiased and fair review/preview on cars.

Wow.... unless you're talking used prices on 5-10 year old cars, good luck with that.

Congrats on the Hyundai! I told you they were good cars. If had to buy a new small car, it would be a Hyundai. My sister loves hers and I guess you liked them enough to buy one too!

Congrats OP. It looks good. I was wondering why you listed Ford Fiesta and not a Focus, but Canadian models. Too late but you should have also looked at the Nissan Versa, Honda Fit, Mazda 2, Fiat 500. All have a model around your price range. The economy models for all makers are far better than they ever were. With the high prices of gasoline the last few years it has pushed automakers to realize that people want to drive a nice small car. We are seeing luxury makers bring out small cars, BMW 1 seriers for example.

 

General Advice:

 

There is good and bad in used cars. They are used for a reason. Some are people trading in for new, others get rid of a lemon. If you research enough you can find out what make and models are lemons. As cars get older then need more maintenance and repairs. Even new cars due, it just won't happen as soon.

I'm sorry but where are you getting your facts from?  You make it sound as if Consumer Reports is a joke...  "Also, they're the most reliable vehicles on the planet" Say's who?  Toymotor?  That is not saying a lot...  You?  What makes you an expert on this topic?  Why should I take your word over the Consumer Reports who's job is to over look these things?

 

Also did you watch the youtube videos that I posted?  When you watch the videos you see how unreliable Toymotor realy is.

 

I'll post them again...

 

 

Also can't forget this one that was posted on CNN not to long ago.

 

 

Reliable, no they are not reliable at all.
