Find the cheapest used cars for sale by using price-filtering tools on used car search sites such as AutoTrader.com, CarGurus.com and CarFax.com to view only the most affordable cars. Classifieds sites such as Craigslist.org and auction sites such as eBay.com have similar price-filtering tools.
When you conduct a search on CarGurus.com, you have the option of prioritizing price during searches you conduct on the site, as of March 2015. Each search involves choosing relevant factors such as your ZIP code, the desired car's transmission type, its mileage, its year of manufacturing and the price of the listing.
Price is entered as a range, with a set minimum and maximum value, the lowest option being $1,000. By selecting a low price value, you can view only the cheapest used cars available. Use the site's other features to determine the reliability of the car and seller. CarGurus.com features a dealer rating system that allows users to leave feedback on each dealer.
Similarly, users searching on eBay.com can set a minimum and maximum price range for desired vehicles as well as view seller feedback. In both cases, seller feedback is the best way to determine whether you can trust the vehicle being sold.
