My wife and I are thinking about buying a new family car. We’d like to invest less than 15k.
Most of the best second-hand cars we come across use a diesel engine, but I wonder if this is still a good option.
Diesel has earned a very bad reputation after the the so-called dieselgate. More and more cities are talking about banning it (if not gas-powered vehicule altogethers) from town centers. It’s a debate whether it’s for our own good or purely biased ideological reasons but there is a risk here
Electric vehicles are simply not an option, put aside the smallest models, they cost roughly 10k more than their gas counterpart. Not to mention that they could become obsolete quickly and lose a lot of value in no time as battery tech is advancing.
Unleaded fuel seems the way to go for people who don’t want to invest much, not get screwed by ridiculous regulations. What do you think?
