Best Used Luxury Cars for the Money

If you think a luxury car is out of your price range, you might want to think again! According to a recent article on Forbes, if you're willing to purchase a three year-old vehicle, there are some great options available right now for less than $24,000.

These upscale vehicles originally sold for $27,000 or more, but can now be had for nearly 50% less in some cases. Vehicles on the list include the Lincoln MKZ, Lexus CT 200h, Infiniti G37 Sedan, and Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport Sedan. Below is the full list of 12.

If you're considering adding one of these luxury vehicles to your garage, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect for the best prices in your area.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
