When you have a taste for the finer things in life but lack the budget to afford those things, sometimes you have to get a little creative. Luckily, the magic of depreciation means that used luxury cars are available within any budget. Maintenance is more expensive, as is insurance, but if you buy a car that’s had all the major maintenance done already and are willing to learn how to do some basic work yourself, owning a used luxury car can be surprisingly affordable.
Some luxury cars are better buys than others, and sometimes one of the older generations is a better car than the redesigned one. All the cars on this list can be had for $15,000 or less, which, if you think about it, is less than the cost of a new Honda Civic. Even if you have to do a few repairs and some more expensive maintenance work, it’ll be a long time before a $10,000 luxury car ends up costing you more than a more expensive economy car. How can you beat that?
