Default Used Cars

I'm currently diving a Nissan Tiida and came to the conclusion its a potential death trap - and its incredibly slow - so i'm going to start looking for my own car.

I've been to some of the dealers along the SZR around Times Square but they're really for new cars which i don't want. I know someone that went to a place that has a test track but he reckons its well dodgy.

The other used places i've been to have a poor selection - anyone any ideas where to go? I'm new to the place so the only places i know are on the SZR as far as the Burj if you're travelling from the Marina side of town.

I was thinking Z4 coupe, mustang, Lumina SS, Chevy Tahoe, 300c - you get the jist.

Not really looked for cars since we have been here, but try www.autotraderuae.com. May be a useful starting point.

I'll have to see what i can find. You do seem to get a lot of car for the money though. I'd go for a 3 or 4 year old M3 or something but servicing costs are too scary....so would any repair costs if it was out of warranty if (say) the gearbox went.

I saw a really nice 350z in white at one of the SZR dealers. Soft top too.

Indeed....though there are a couple of decent ones, none off the top of my head that are current...but those ones listed are utterly rubbish.

The 'stang is good in a straight line but it's rubbish when you ain't dragging and it looks like a bag of spanners, something a pasty, bolding, mid level exec would buy to impress the secretary...along with the 'vette...hair dressers car...it's been a long way since the 50's-70's when American muscle has been quality and cool.

Someone is now going to say they own a 'vette or a 'stang now aren't they

Anyway, not much help as I don't know what's good out there, but I'd stay away from chevy and ford
