There are a lot of disabled people that cannot work and their only source of income is SSI. As most disable people can attest to, SSI does not exactly pay a lot. Yet disabled people still need to go about their lives like everyone else. One of the major challenges they face is being able to buy a car. Cars are usually not cheap. In fact the cheapest new car would cost at least $10K. This gives the disabled motive to find cheap cars for disabled people.
Of course if you wanted to buy the cheapest car, the best way to go would be to by a used car. You do not want to just buy any old used car though. You want to make sure that the car is reliable and problem free. If you spent a little bit of money for a car but had to pay a lot for repairs, then the purchase would not be worth it. Generally, the most reliable cars would be Japanese cars and some of the American cars are getting better with reliability such as Ford.
You can start your search for cheap cars by going to websites such as Craigslist or Autotrader. Both are free sites where owners list their vehicles for sale. You can search according to the city and also the type of vehicle that you are looking for. These sites usually have both private and dealers selling cars. Usually the private sellers are cheaper than the dealers.
You might also be able to find free cars for disabled people too. Many people donate cars to organizations. Try finding a local organization that helps disabled people. A good bet would be to contact a local church. They would most likely try to help out. Your chances are better if you’re a member.
If you are looking for a cheap car, you should at least be prudent in your purchase. Be sure to have it checked out by a trusted mechanic before you buy. Although it may be cheap, you still want to make sure its problem free.
