Find cars under 200 dollars

Cars under 200 dollarsMostly 200$ cars are  old and in very questionable condition. I mean, for 200 dollars you can get bicycle, so don’t get your expectations too high.  However with luck and spending some time it is possible to find relatively decent car under 200$, which will be good for fun driving with friends  or for spare parts.
If you have a chance to get more money I would recommend  reading  about 500$ and 1000$ cars, otherwise keep reading this article.

If you feel comfortable on Internet, you can try online auctions and best one of course is eBay. See eBay listings under 200 dollars:

Car for driving

As stated before, it isn’t impossible to get good-to-drive car under 200$. The questions are how long can you  drive with it and how much it will cost to maintain. In longterm those extremely cheap cars turn into extremely expensive ones.

Anyway, before buying take familiar mechanic  along you so he can tell which car is total garbage and which isn’t.  Second reason for bringing mechanic is that there are many cars on sale which have very low price only because owner thinks car is wreckage but with few repairs it would be good for some time. If your mechanic (or you ) can spot those cars, then congratulations – you have a bargain!

If you have to put much money to repair and buy spare parts, then in longterm it’s cheaper to buy a bit more expensive car.  Find cars under 500.

Car for spare parts

If you want car for spare parts, you should know what parts exactly you need and when browsing cars look for them. For 200 bucks you can’t expect all parts to be in good condition, but if you spend some time you can get needed part  & other stuff cheaper then buying just one part. In addition you have other parts which in worst scenario will be welcomed in scrap metal exchange.

If you don’t feel 100% confident about cars, take someone with more mechanical experience, so you don’t loose money! 200 bucks is still a money..
