Going to looking for a used car, I am unfamiliar with many of the cars here.

Hi everyone,

My name is Joe and from the Philly area of PA. I am unfamiliar with some of the makes, brands, and models here in Switzerland. Also with some of the engines such as erdgas.

I am looking to buy a used car or something cheap hopefully under 10,000-15,000. In the USA I would use such things as "Kelly Blue Book" "Edmond's" and research a little bit "Consumer Reports". Also I would talk to a local mechanic I was friends with. I am out of my element here in Switzerland as how to search.

The last car I had in the US was a 1998 jeep cherokee in great condition that had well over 200,000 and owned for well over a decade of it's life. With the exception of replacing a radiator and water pump, I did many of the small repairs myself on car. I actually took pride and enjoyed going to the "you pull-it, you pick-it" junk yard for parts and doing the work myself.

I mention that so that someone answering has an idea that my car knowledge is dated and generational, as well as geographically. Cars like Opel Astra are new to me and Peugeots were always foreign for example.
