Having a car is nowadays easy. Before you buy any car as  a low income earner, you have to look into a number of factors. You need not to go for luxurious guzzlers; instead just go for pocket-friendly vehicle that would suit your needs.

Also don’t rush for sugarcoated deals such as buying cheap second hand cars. Cheap is expensive you know; you will definitely end up spending much on maintenance costs and other repairs.

I have hereby done a comprehensive research and compiled a list of the top ten cars that you can easily afford as a student even if you are not employed. These cars have been proven not only as efficient but also having commendable mileage.

Further note that these cars may be used thereby making their prices to go down from the retail prices. Some of these cars also come with warranty therefore suitable and cost-friendly to you as a student and a low income earner.

To find their original specs, prices and any other relevant information regarding them, do a Google search and log on to their official websites and find out whether they offer any discounts and after-sale services such as delivery to buyers’ premises.
