Re: Wanted: car

Thanks! I already saw this ad but the steering on the wrong side is really a problem for us.

Re: Wanted: car

You will be lucky to find yourself a half descent run around for 1000chf. I would up the budget a little bit, good luck.

Re: Wanted: car

We really don't expect to have the best car for this price but a car that will serve us for 2-3 years.

That sounds like something with a new MFK, I think the chances are close to zero that you will find a freshly tested car for under 1k, 2 k & you will find some.

Insurance, running costs, inevitable repairs and Strassenverkehrsabgabe will probably cost more than the value of whatever you buy. And don't forget the disposal fees...
At that price, get a bike, Halbtax card and use public transport on days with bad weather.

Re: Wanted: car

I would agree that finding one for that price that would actually run for 2-3 years would be quite difficult. We have an Opel Zafira for 4500K if you decide to up your budget. It's been given a rating of 6.0 on comparis.ch. And I'm an EF-er

Brave (wo)man.

EF members have more money than sense when it comes to buying penis extns. status symbols cars, and always think they can sell them, 3yrs. later, for what they paid for them.

Still your best bet is Swiss Tony, or the other honest Swiss folk.

Re: Wanted: car [Budget up to 1000CHF]

I would also agree you'll have a lot more choice with a larger budget, but when I was looking, I saw a lot fresh mfk between 1500- 2500, usually around 10 years old. Check all the sites I reckon Internet 2nd hand sites are your best option.

Re: Wanted: car [Budget up to 1000CHF]

Less than 1.5k will be pretty much impossible.

My daughter got a 15 year old Opel Corsa with fresh MFK for 1.5k two years ago, still going fine.

But between tax, insurance and oil changes, she probably spends that much again each year.

Re: Wanted: car [Budget up to 1000CHF]

Do you really need a car in front of your house?

Look carefully at the car share scheme Mobility. There is sure to be one near you, and all you have to pay is the
annual subscription, and the fee when you use it.
Everything else, including fuel, is included. Much cheaper than Fr 1'000 and you get a nearly new car with no worries,

There are six pick up stations near you,

My beef with mobility is you have to return the car to the place you picked it up from, which defeats the benefit of the concept of short term usage. I use a car for 4 hours then it's parked for 8-36 hours then driven for 4 hours again.

And if you don't live near to a pick up point it can be a really hassle just getting to and from the place to actually pick the car up.

Re: Wanted: car [Budget up to 1000CHF]

We actually use mobility for grocery shopping but for long distance it's not that interesting. We paid about 80 CHF from schaffhausen to ikea. I wish they would make some deals for long distance trips.
