Deciding a Mitsubishi Colt lowest cost for yourself
Most of us have a budget when we are thinking of buying a car. Some look for the cheapest unit in the desired segment. But, if budget allows, we suggest taking a value for money (VFM) approach. So, what is the value for money (VFM) approach? It simply means to look deeper into the unit, its options, its mileage, its internal and external condition, its engine status, etc. and put this information in the calculation, while deciding which Mitsubishi Colt price that you want to go for.
When you want to buy a Used Mitsubishi Colt for sale , it is good to know the catalogue price of the model. Especially for mid to high range cars, the package or grade of the car changes the price. On average, a car depreciates around 10% per year. This means, if you are buying a cost of Mitsubishi Colt, the price should be 50% of a new one. Note that, this is a very general calculation and after 6-7 years, this model does not work (10-year-old cars are not free).
Buying a low mileage Mitsubishi Colt? How?
First, do you plan to use the car for some years and then re-sell it? If yes, calculate how far you will go until you sell your car, and make sure the car still has a reasonable mileage when you re-sell it. A reasonable mileage for a sedan or hatchback car is around 80,000 - 100,000 km; for an SUV, Van or Wagon is under 180,000 km; and for a Truck or a Bus, well, there is no limitation for a Truck or a Bus.
Second, the mileage is considered high or low relative to the cars age. A 1-year-old car with 50,000 km mileage is definitely considered as high mileage, while a 10-year-old car with 60,000 km will be considered as low mileage. Besides, while lower mileage might look great, super low mileage is not always good, if a 10-year-old car sat unused for most of its life, it might need some big maintenance.
On CAR FROM JAPAN, finding a Mitsubishi Colt good mileage is much easier as you can easily sort the mileage, filter out the reasonable ones, within your budget.
Best gas mileage Mitsubishi Colt? Why not?
As you are on this page, another factor you should pay attention to is the Mitsubishi Colt fuel consumption. To check whether the fuel consumption of this car fit your demand or not, here are some useful tips for you:
First, choose the right car size. Why? The bigger and the heavier the car is, the more fuel it will consume. When you have to carry a lot of people and luggage, we understand that you will need a roomy car. That is fair. But, just make sure you buy something that is just-big-enough, no more.
Next, choose the right engine size. A smaller engine will result in greater fuel economy. A larger engine not only use more fuel to operate; it also increases rolling resistance - which consumes more fuel - because, it is heavier.
Last, avoid overkill when it comes to extra accessories for your car. Power features and accessories will increase the fuel consumption.
Choosing a best mpg Mitsubishi Colt is not an easy job, especially if you have a tight budget, we hope the above tips make it easier for you to make the decision.
