Best New Cars on a Tight Budget
July 24, 2014If you're close to retiring, that means you'll be on a pretty strict budget to help ensure your retirement dollars go the full distance. So finding yourself in need of a new car may seem like a very daunting task -- can you really afford an expense like that right now?
BankRate.com understand this, and to help they've recently released a list of what they consider the top seven cars for retirees on a budget. All the cars on the list are below the $36,500 mark, and include vehicles that received top marks for safety and ride quality. Vehicles on the list include the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE, 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, and 2014 Chevrolet Impala 2LT.
