Best Used Luxury Cars for the Money
June 18, 2015If 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 MoneyThe 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:
