What car is best for a first time buyer?

Asked by Anuj

We are a couple looking for our first car in the budget of $10,000. We will use the car for about 2-3 years. Please suggest a used car that will have low maintenance, enough power for freeways and good resale value.

Go for a car from a well-respected brand, such as a Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 or Hyundai i30. All will give you economical motoring, low maintenance, and should hold their value quite well for the next couple of years or so.
