The Bargains of Christmas - Sports Cars and Convertibles

Christmas is just around the corner, and you're asking what car would you want to gift to yourself (if you are good this year) or to your loved ones. Your Ultimate Used Car Guide is here to solve the problem by giving you some recommendations.

So, how are these bargain picks are chosen? Here are some criteria that were followed:
  • A vehicle must be available between 2002-2011
  • Reported problems from owners are minimal, they are based from local forums and several of my reviews
  • Vehicle value must be excellent, since they are good bargains. 
  • Must offer a competitive advantage over its rivals and must fit the buyers needs in a category
  • Availability in the second hand market must be widespread
Want the cool breeze to hit your face while cruising this holiday season? Or desiring the adrenalin rush and craving the three digit speed diet on the empty tarmac? Well, this article helps you find the great bargains when it comes to sports cars and convertibles that you can purchase.

Among the limited choices in this field, this two door from the Land of Kimchi is our pick. Why did I choose this? Sleek looks, tuning potential, a wide variety of engines and transmission options, and importantly, low prices. If the latest model does not appeal to you, then save all your bucks for a pre-owned unit. By the way, do yourself a test drive to see if the manual or automatic fits your lifestyle, since the former can be grubby at most while the latter spoils all the fun.

Other bets:
2002-2011 Subaru Impreza WRX/WRX STI - The good thing about this rally oriented vehicle is that, you can live with this one - unlike the other Japanese rival that is too much focused. With some units hovering in the six digit range, it is a great bargain. However, be careful with tired looking units and converted ones from Japan.

2008-2011 Mazda MX5 Miata - The only convertible in the list, since other competitors are too expensive to maintain, to purchase, or have spotty reliability. It may be expensive but not German pricey but durability is tops.
