The Best Used Cars to Buy If You're a Pizza Delivery Guy or Gal

If you deliver pizzas, you want to be sure that your car is reliable and won’t break down. After all, you have hungry customers waiting, and you don’t want the pizza to get cold. You want low gas mileage, since the money you spend on fuel reduces your profits. It’s also important that your car handles well in bad weather, since you know that people are going to be ordering out more when the weather isn’t the best. You also probably don’t want to spend a whole lot of money on a used car, since, let’s face it, delivering pizzas isn’t exactly the most lucrative line of work.

With these considerations in mind, we’ve narrowed down the best pizza delivery cars to the Smart ForTwo, Audi S6 Avant Quattro, Wheego Whip, Toyota Corolla, and Toyota Yaris.

  • Smart ForTwo: This car doesn’t have a whole lot of room for your pizzas – you’re probably going to have to use the passenger seat. But this is an amazingly maneuverable car, and perfect for cities where it can be hard to find a place to park – you can pull into a pretty small space with the Smart ForTwo.

  • Audi S6 Avant Quattro: The Audi S6 Avant Quattro is perfect for people who love to drive, and it will get you around quickly, with great handling and acceleration. There’s plenty of space for your pizzas, and you’ll appreciate the heated seats in the cold weather. Even with all the features of this car, you’ll still be able to find a used one at a decent price.

  • Wheego Whip: This is about the size of a Smart car, and not all that exciting to look at, but it will get you in and out of tight parking situations. You’ll also get great mileage from this electric car. The only downside is that they’re not overly common, so if you want one, you might have to do some heavy-duty shopping.

  • Toyota Corolla: The Corolla has long been known for its reliability, which is very important if you’re going to get those pizzas delivered before they get cold. It’s also easy on gas, and because the Corolla is so popular, you should have no difficulty in finding a used model at a reasonable price.

  • Toyota Yaris: The Yaris is surprisingly roomy inside, for a car that looks so small on the outside. You’ll definitely have enough room for your pizzas. You won’t get a lot of features with the Yaris, but you will get great fuel economy and a car that is very easy to park and has a nice, tight turning radius.

Some of our favorite pizza delivery cars have more features than others, but they’re all reliable, easy on gas, and won’t break the bank. YourMechanic recommends any of the above five cars without reservation.

Chevrolet Impala V6-3.6L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Lansdale, Pennsylvania
Shawn was prompt, professional, and delivered the promised service as expected. This was a used vehicle pre-purchase inspection. Shawn also had to drive to multiple locations to perform the inspection, as the address listed that I provided him with was not accurate, but he still made it to the correct location within his time window and completed the inspection.
Toyota Sequoia - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Akron, Pennsylvania
Shawn was very prompt in communicating with me and was good at helping me decide whether to purchase a used car. He help me avoid a car with a repaired rusted frame that could be a danger to my family's safety since we were planning on using the car to tow a travel trailer!

Luis was great. He showed up on time, acted professionally, and gave me confidence with a pre-purchase car inspection.
Acura RDX - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - South Hackensack, New Jersey
Luis did a thorough pre-purchase inspection for me, and found several major issues that made me pass on buying the car. Had I purchased the car, I almost certainly would have ended up paying thousands in repairs down the road. Thanks Luis!

Hyundai Elantra L4-2.0L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Englewood, Colorado
He did a pre-purchase inspection for me. He was knowledgeable and fast, and knew what he was looking for. I really appreciate all the pictures and documentation he took of the state of the car before purchase. He noted potential issues with the car that I wouldn't have been able to notice. Would recommend.
GMC Savana 1500 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Golden, Colorado
I trust Robert. He gave me a list and we will take care of it the week of June 29. I will know then that my vehicle is ready for the winter and is safe to drive. I look forward to getting things ready for another winter of careful driving.
