Isn’t Maltapark just great? Last I mentioned it, I listed some interesting cars for sale on Maltapark for under €5000. Today, we’re going try unearth more gems hiding there, gems costing under €15,000.
Now, this isn’t that straightforward.
For a start, there’s 28793 results for cars selling under 15K on Maltapark, around half of which are duplicate listings and shoddy autodealers. The job fell to me to sift through the crap and bring you the goods.
Second, €15,000 isn’t a huge amount of money, and you would think you can buy a lot of car for the money, but the Maltese of Maltapark have an unrealistic idea of what their cars are worth.
For example, may I interest you in the butt ugly Nissan Joke (hur-hur, get it?), 2011 model year, a UK import with 67,000 on the clock, for FIFTEEN AND A HALF GRAND? Or a 1996 Peugeot 306 Cabriolet, for the same price? No?
We waded through the crap, and eliminated most of the dealers, and here is my list of the top 5 cars under €15000 to buy on Maltapark today.
1 – A high mileage Alfa 159
Sure, UK license, so won’t be cheap to keep, but the price is right, and it’s a stunner of a sedan and it has the 2.4 JTD engine on it, which is incredible. I know, I have that engine too.
2 – Or a low mileage Mazda MX 5 NC
Bang on budget. A little expensive to be honest, but it’s a hell of a car, because, once again, I own one. This has the smaller 1.8 engine, which is still lots of fun, though I’d prefer the full fat 2.0 litre. Or this one, cheaper and in a different colour – http://www.maltapark.com/item/details/7060763
3 – A two grand Honda Prelude
If the mileage of 77 thousand KM is correct, this would be a low mileage car for a 1991 model, covering under 3000 miles annually. It’s a huge boat of a car, but a 1991 Honda will be a simple, reliable car, and for the price, I’d say it’s good value. Also, pop up headlights!
4 – An almost too good Audi A4
This car seems to have everything you could possibly imagine, and with a single owner and with around 10,000 KM per year over the course of its 8 year life so far, it seems like this workhorse has quite a few furlongs left to go.
5 – The wildcard, a Volvo XC 90
This Volvo XC 90 is either horribly wrong, or horribly right. I guess the price is a little high for a 12 year old car, but Volvos hold their value, and the Maltese overestimate the value of their cars somewhat, but, paying €13.5K for a car with a thousand miles might either be a steal, or you’re buying something that hasn’t started in years. Or more likely, that mileage is off by a factor of thousands. 😛
