5 Used Cars That You Prove You Don’t Need Power (Or A Huge Bank Account) To Have Fun


Ah…. the world of used cars. A lovely place to be, when you consider you can buy for less than half the price of a new Versa. In truth, I love any used car as much as anyone. However, people have been going up to me and saying that you need power to have fun. Me, being a rather open with a statement, think it’s much better to own a small, fun to drive and slow car over a brash, rapid and completely fast supercar.

1. Volkswagen Golf GTi (the MK5)

 

It’s among the crop of hot hatchbacks that I think still work. It’s got 197hp – while not as much as the 241 you get from the new GTi, it’s still quick enough to drive.

You can find one cheap, but be mindful of a few things. Check to see if the DSG gearbox has been regularly serviced. Any bill with the DSG gearbox is expensive – so you are better off with the manual.

Also, if you realise that the car has a rather awkward stance, it could mean the rear springs have shattered. It’s not expensive to fix, so there is no need to worry.

Tempted? Here’s the ad for the one we found. (I admit, a rubbish interior)

2. Ford Fiesta SE (a fun car, not an ST)

Ah yes, the humble Fiesta. For years, one of the many used cars that is so much fun to drive. I would have went for the ST, but as always, I’ve been sensible for a car that gives you 90% of the thrills, for less power.

I mean, if you were to buy a fast car, you’d be estimating how much power you need. But in something like this, you just need to glue your foot right down.
