The cars we would recommend for under a grand are the Vauxhall Corsa, the Ford Focus and the Honda Civic. You can find some really great examples advertised across the site all for under £1,000. The great thing with these cars is that they're not only great to drive but they're reliable and remarkably cheap to run. Make sure you take a good look at the array of cars under £1,000 on DesperateSeller.co.uk and remember you can narrow down your search to location using the form at the top of the page.

Good to know: At this price range the depreciation on cars is pretty much non-existent. Therefore, even if you decide to sell the car after a year then there's a good chance you'll get most of your money back!
