Let me start this by saying, I am not eligible to win the $10,000 that you can win with our radio station, also I think it is extremely important for me to say that I am in no way shape or form an expert on Used Cars (in fact my used car buying track record is sub par) BUT...IF I were the winner of the $10,000 grand prize and I was car shopping these deals look good to me!

So I went to Cars.com and I simply put in the 62301 (Main Quincy Zip Code) and set the parameter for 30 miles from that zip code, and the max budget for the vehicle to be $10,000 and here are my top 3 finds.

  • 2006 Chevy Colorado LS- Only $6,469 and low miles with 132,348 for a 15 year old little truck. This thing isn't flashy but I'm a truck guy and it was the best truck deal I found, plus still have over $3,000 left over!
  • 2012 GMC Terrain SLE-1 -Listed at the top end of the budget at $9,974 with just over 108,000 miles on it. I've always thought these were good looking, this one is clean, and has a decent amount of space for a small SUV.
  • 2004 Jaguar S-Type 4.2 - Ok so lets be honest I really put this on the list because I think owning a Jaguar would be cool, and this one is clean, has under 90,000 miles AND is only $6,490...I might buy this one regardless of not being able to win.

Would you spend the whole $10,000 to just buy a used car, or would you use that money as a down payment on a new car?
