If you are in the market for a new car, you might want to think twice before buying a new model from the showroom. These days it makes a lot more sense both financially and environmentally to buy a used or nearly new car.
If you simply must change your vehicle, be it for fuel efficiency or any other reason, one option is to simply buy a used car that gets better fuel mileage than your existing one.
Buying a used car delays the additional environmental costs of making something new. There are significant environmental costs to both manufacturing a new automobile and adding your old car to the ever-growing collective junk heap.
A 2004 analysis by Toyota found that as much as 28% of the carbon dioxide emissions generated during the lifecycle of a typical gasoline-powered car, can occur during its manufacture and its transportation to the dealer.
