The best-used cars under $15,000 right now

By John Hayden

When getting a used car, it’s important to conduct a thorough check to see if it’s efficient and ideal for you.

Here are a few things to consider when buying a used car in Canada;

Safety rating

Your safety and those of your passengers are important, and  that’s why you should go for care with high safety ratings.


There’s no use in purchasing a car you won’t feel comfortable driving in. If you prefer portability then go for a compact car, but if you’re a tall buyer, then this won’t be a good idea.

Fuel efficiency

If you spend more time driving, then you should consider the cost of gas. It’ll take you to run around. Getting a fuel-efficient car – probably one with a usage of 6.2L/100Km is recommended.


This is probably the highest determining factor when it comes to buying a new car. Check how much you can afford to pay and search for cars within this price range.
