  1. Given they may have well over 100K miles to reach those prices, may be worth getting a low trim Corolla and financing.

    • Those are very expensive compared to a Corolla. And that cost means you’re not saving at the pump.

      @N B no you’re saving as ownership goes because of the maintenance but if you don’t plan to keep your car over five years and maybe it’s not a smart idea investment

      @MBisFrenchy you could find some use EV‘s under $20,000

    • @Ricco kimbrough that’s what I mean. You have to own an electric car a long time to recoup the extra cost. Like 10-20 years. That’s a Prius – it takes like 10-20 years to make up the gas saved over a Corolla. Gas is pretty cheap honestly. $2-3k per year.

    • Pay now or pay later. Personally just go with a hybrid Corolla based on how gas prices are rising

    I know the video is only a minute long so I should’ve expected this, but based on my many years experience with YouTube videos, I was pleasantly surprised they got straight to the list with no filler. Awesome!

    Just buying electric car with these gas prices within five years you’ll pay more for gas then your car 😂

    • You may be better off with a hybrid or plug in hybrid depending on your commute. Also electricity is going up in price too unfortunately.

      @MBisFrenchy yeah but many places let you charge for free you like Nissan charge my car for 30 minutes and I’m at 100% and don’t have to pay 😊

  4. From that list I would consider Mazda 3, CX5, Toyota Avalon. Maybe Subaru for its AWD system. Never Ford.

  5. Or buy a bike and ride public transit, you don’t have to burden yourself financially by owning a car.

    Good luck finding these cars with that price. Lol. CR should learn whats going on real world and be more realistic if they want to recommend anything to consumers.

  7. They forgot the honda civic and toyota corolla.
