Buying A Car 2017


The 2017 Car Buyer Journey, commissioned by Cox Automotive through IHS Markit, was conducted to gain an understanding of consumer car-shopping behavior and perception of the dealer experience. A total of 2,175 car buyers who purchased a vehicle within the 12 months prior to August 6, 2016 completed a survey.




buying a car 2017



Ron Montoya with Edmunds.com, the car buying website, says a lot of people think, " 'Hey, this car's new. I'm driving an old car. I don't really need to drive this new car. Anything is going to be better than what I'm currently driving.' So they don't test-drive it."


But let's say that you want to buy a Mazda 3 that someone has bought already. Say, a third generation 2017 model? There are a lot of things that you should know about the car before you buy it, which is true of any car but especially so when it comes to one that someone else has already owned.


First off, the basics of what you are getting. The 2017 Mazda 3 has a 2.5-liter inline four engine that produces 184-hp at 5,700 rpm, and 185 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm. It puts that power through a front wheel drive drivetrain via a six speed automatic transmission with overdrive. It gets 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, with a combined fuel economy of 30 mpg.


On average, the insurance cost for a 2017 Mazda 3 is $1370. Of course, that can vary a lot in either direction depending on any number of factors. The driver's age, gender, length of time driving, history of accidents, where they live, and above all what company they are getting a policy from are all factors that go into the cost that you pay for a car's insurance.


Used 2017 Mazda 3 prices currently on Edmunds range from $10,995 at the lowest to $25,999 at the highest. By comparison, prices for a new base model 2021 Mazda 3 have an MSRP of $20,650, while the highest trim Mazda 3 (the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus) has a starting MSRP of $32,600. So by going just a few years out of date, you are saving quite a lot of money.


Pay off procedures vary depending on whether the lienholder is using the Electronic Lien Title (ELT) system or a paper title. Financial institutions and auto dealers who finance vehicles have been required to use ELT since July 1, 2017.


If your loan or lien was establshed prior to July 1, 2017, the bank or lienholder may have a paper title for your vehicle. They must sign the appropriate section of the vehicle title and mail or otherwise deliver it to you when your loan is paid off.


The Hyundai Elantra has made a name for itself in the crowded compact car class. It is available as a sedan or hatchback and offers plenty of room and standard features. What makes it stand out is its attractive styling and well-designed interior. It offers more premium quality than you would expect of a car in this class. Those attributes, plus good safety and reliability ratings, make it a solid pick.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\n2017 Hyundai Elantra features & specs\u00a0\n\n\n\n2017 Hyundai Elantra Getty Images \n\n\n\nThe 2017 Elantra is available in five trim levels:\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\nThe base SE is equipped with a 2.0 four-cylinder engine putting out 147 hp and includes remote keyless entry, satellite radio, and a USB port as standard equipment. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but a six-speed auto is optional. Additionally, the SE is available in two option packages:\u00a0\n\n\n\nThe Popular Equipment package adds alloy wheels, a review camera, cruise control, a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.\u00a0The Tech package adds blind spot detection, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and push-button start.\n\n\n\nThe Elantra Eco and Elantra Limited trim levels come standard with the above features. The Eco is equipped with a 128 hp turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This drivetrain improves fuel economy and acceleration but feels slightly clunky compared to the standard automatic.\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\nThe Limited adds leather seats and Hyundai\u2019s Bluelink connected care. Available options on Limited models include heated rear seats, a navigation system, and a sunroof. It\u2019s also the only trim level available with additional safety features like adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning.\u00a0\n\n\n\nThe Sport and GT models are available for people who want more performance. The Elantra Sport is similar to the SE trim with the Popular Equipment package but includes a sportier suspension, quicker steering, larger brakes, and 173 hp turbocharged four-cylinder.\u00a0\n\n\n\nFinally, the Elantra GT is similar to the Sport with two exceptions. First, it\u2019s the only Elantra that offers a convenient hatchback body style. Additionally, it gains an additional 28 hp over the Sport bringing the total to 201.\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\n2017 Hyundai Elantra Reviews\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nU.S. News says the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a good option in the compact car segment. It praised the Elantra for its predicted reliability and IIHS Top Saftey Pick+ designation. U.S. News also likes the Elantra\u2019s interior, saying, \u201cIt\u2019s especially impressive inside, thanks to its easy-to-use features, handsome materials, and generous seating space.\u201d However, it ranks 16th out of 46 cars in U.S. News\u2019 2022 Compact Used Car ranking. The company summed up the Elantra by saying it\u2019s a good option, but \u201cthere are better cars to consider as well.\u201d\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\nIn Consumer Reports\u2019 review of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, the company also praised its interior, saying, \u201cuser-friendliness is an Elantra strong point, aided by a relatively spacious interior.\u201d Like U.S. News, Consumer Reports ranked the Elantra in the middle of the pack noting it lacked the refinement of other cars in its class.\u00a0\n\n\n\nNot surprisingly, Car and Driver had many of the same things to say about the 2017 Elantra. The editors summed up their verdict with, \u201cthe Elantra offers good value and is a solid choice in the compact-car segment, but it falls short of leading the class.\u201d The review also commented how the Elantra has improved significantly since it was first launched, going from a \u201cbargain-basement sedan\u201d to a \u201cwell-rounded, mature small car.\u201d\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n\nIs the 2017 Hyundai Elantra a Reliable Car?\u00a0\n\n\n\nThe 2017 Elantra has a predicted reliability rating of four out of five from J.D. Power, which is good for the class. It\u2019s covered by Hyundai\u2019s 5-year\/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.\u00a0\n\n\n\nIs the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Worth Buying?\u00a0\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\tRelated\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tWhy is the Hyundai Elantra Recommended By Consumer Reports?\t\t\n\t\n\nThe 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a good option if you\u2019re looking at used compact cars in the $15,000 to $20,000 range. It features a roomy interior and offers an impressive amount of space and plenty of easy-to-use features. It also has good predicted reliability ratings, one of the better warranties, and received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety\u2019s Top Safety Pick+ award for 2017.\u00a0\n\n\n\nDon\u2019t let the middle-of-the-pack ratings fool you \u2013 it speaks to the quality of cars in the compact segment as opposed to the Elantra\u2019s ratings. Other cars in this class that offer a better driving experience, including the Honda Civic and Mazda 3. But it\u2019s hard to beat the Elantra on features and value for the price.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\n\n\n","ptime":"2022-08-27T23:13:00","custom_date":"","custom_datedesc":"","author":"name":"Mark Webb","slug":"mark-webb","url":"https:\/\/www.motorbiscuit.com\/author\/mark-webb\/","twitter_link":null,"facebook_link":null,"linkedin_link":null,"instagram_link":null,"comment_count":0,"review_schema":" Getty Images The 2017 Elantra is available in five trim levels:\\u00a0\\u00a0 The base SE is equipped with a 2.0 four-cylinder engine putting out 147 hp and includes remote keyless entry, satellite radio, and a USB port as standard equipment.
