The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re a Wedding Planner

As a wedding planner, the demands placed on your time are going to be significant, even if you’re only dealing with one or two couples. You need to be a master juggler when it comes to your time and your scheduling, and that means that you’re going to need a very reliable used car. You’ll probably also want one that delivers good gas mileage, and allows you a bit of room to stow materials and supplies.

With those considerations in mind, we evaluated several small used cars, and we have settled on the Mazda3, Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Fit, Honda Civic and Kia Rio as the best cars for wedding planners.

  • Mazda3: You’ll appreciate the Mazda 3’s great gas mileage, delivering 25 mpg with city driving and 33 mpg on the highway. This is also a fast, fun car to drive, and it handles admirably.

  • Chevrolet Cruze: With the Chevy Cruze, you can expect 22 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Since you’ll be spending a lot of time in your car, you’ll also appreciate the remarkably comfortable ride and the convenient, stylish interior.

  • Honda Fit: In terms of gas mileage, there is no difference at all between the Honda Fit and the Chevy Cruze. However, if you use your vehicle as a family car as well as a work vehicle, you’ll appreciate the extra cargo room and passenger space you get with the Fit.

  • Honda Civic: The Civic does better than either the Cruze or the Fit when it comes to gas mileage. You can expect 28 mpg with city driving, and 35 mpg when you hit the highway. It’s also a good-looking, comfortable car, and you’ll enjoy driving it.

  • Kia Rio: The Rio is another great choice when it comes to gas mileage, with 28 mpg for city driving and 36 mpg on the open road. The interior is attractive with a variety of features, and you’ll also get a smooth ride.

Wedding planners are on the road a lot, going from errand to errand. That means they need a vehicle that is comfortable, has an attractive interior, and perhaps most importantly, offers great gas mileage. Any of the five used vehicles listed above should please even the most discriminating wedding planner.

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.
