Comparenow.com Presents Their Top Four Best Commuter Cars Under $10,000

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

The average American spends 25.4 minutes commuting to work each day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Weather, traffic and bad drivers can all conspire to make that commute longer, but there’s one sure way to make it seem shorter: driving a car you love. Here are the top picks from comparenow.com of the best cars under $ 10,000 for your daily commute.

Characteristics of the Best Commuter Cars:

    Great gas mileage: Driving a fuel-efficient vehicle will save you money — and in some states, hybrid or electric vehicles can use the HOV express lanes.
    Comfortable interiors: You don’t want to arrive at work feeling stiff and achy from your drive. Look for a cushy interior with enough leg- and headroom.
    Connect with your phone: If you’re someone who likes to get a jump-start on the day’s work, Bluetooth integration with your phone can help you safely make calls while you’re driving.
    Reliable: What’s worse than commuting during rush hour? Getting stuck on the side of the road during rush hour.
    Fun to drive: The best cars under $ 10,000 for commuting can be sporty, too.

Here are our favorites:

2005-2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

For these two years, the Jetta TDI was manufactured with a fast and efficient 1.9-liter diesel engine — and then VW stopped making the diesel Jetta until 2009. The reported gas mileage for the ’05 TDI is 28 city/39 highway, but according to AutoTrader’s review, longtime Jetta TDI owners report achieving even higher numbers, up to 50 mpg. Because the Jetta TDI is one of the best cars under $ 10,000 for fuel efficiency and driving fun, these model years can be hard to find.

2006-2009 Honda Civic

It won’t turn heads, but the Civic is still a good-looking sedan with legendary reliability. It gets great gas mileage, too: 25 city/36 highway for the automatic 2008 model. The Si model delivers the best handling, with “nimble handling and a delightfully fizzy engine,” according to Edmunds.

2005-2008 Toyota Prius

With gas mileage that approaches 50 mpg, the Prius is hands-down one of the best commuter cars. While a new Prius starts around $ 25,000, you can find a used model for under $ 10,000 if you look at model years 2005-08. You may even be able to find one with still-impressive tech options, such as voice-activated climate control or a rear-view camera. There are special considerations for buying a used Prius, however: While the brakes typically last longer than in conventional cars, you may need to replace the battery if the car is more than 5 years old or has more than 100,000 miles.

2008-2010 Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra was named U.S. News’ 2010 Best Compact Car for the Money, and today it’s one of the best cars under $ 10,000. While it doesn’t have a lot of fancy features, the Elantra covers all the bases for a solid commuter car: good gas mileage (26 city/34 highway), abundant interior space, and high safety scores.

Freedom Laser Therapy President Craig Nabat Commends Billionaire Real Estate Tycoon Donald Trump for Listening to His Big Brother; Offers $10,000 to Help Trump Employees

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2014

Donald Trump is considered by many to be a shrewd and savvy businessman. Freedom Laser Therapy believes him to also be an intelligent person. When it came to smoking, Trump never started.

If anyone knows about credit, it’s Donald Trump; and The Donald is giving credit to his brother for helping mold his behavior. They say with age comes wisdom; and Donald Trump’s older brother Fred Jr. appears to have had his share when he told his little brother: “Don’t ever smoke, don’t ever drink.” — something Trump shared with Piers Morgan on “CNN Piers Morgan Tonight. “I say that to my kids now – no drinking, no drugs, no alcohol. So far my kids have been following my lead.” In the same heartfelt interview, Trump shared, “I had an older brother named Fred, who was a great guy, a handsome guy – the most handsome guy that you’ve ever seen. He had everything going: he loved flying airplanes, he was a professional pilot. Somewhere along the line, I think he was in college, he started drinking. It got worse and worse. He also smoked a lot. He was one of my great teachers, if not my best.” Sadly Fred died at 43.

Although The Donald is a teetotaler and non-smoker, surprisingly he has had issues with smoking and even had a vodka named after him. Not long ago, as a casino owner in Atlantic City, Trump was faced with the looming issue of a ban on smoking on the casino floors. One might assume that given Trump’s apparent abhorrence to smoking, this might seemingly have been a perplexing dilemma for The Donald, as he stated in the April 25, 2008 USA Today article, Trump: Atlantic City casinos should sue over smoking ban, “I’m not a smoker, and I don’t personally like what smoking does to people,” Trump told The Associated Press in an interview in his Manhattan office. “But this puts us at a huge disadvantage.” In the end, much to the delight the casino owners, the boardwalk avoided the ban, and their bottom line remains unaffected. As for the vodka with Trumps’ name — it didn’t last. But perhaps, as Billy Long restated on http://www.leadershipvoices.com, “How do we handle failure on the team?”, September 17, 2013, the answer falls under one of Trumps’ most well quoted lines: “Sometimes by losing a battle, you will find a new way to win the war.”

Craig Nabat, founder of Freedom Laser Therapy, says: “It would appear perhaps that society at large might still have a bit further to go to eliminate all trepidation surrounding the end of tobacco use and win the war on nicotine addiction; but at Freedom, we applaud Mr. Trump for his vital stand and in turn offer The Trump organization, at no charge to them, $ 10,000 worth of the new (for home use) Freedom Quit Smoking System, for your employees or anyone you know that desires to quit. Freedom’s goal is for Trump to recommend the corporate smoking cessation program to the rest of his team once our success is proven.”
