unusual facts about used cars

We all know used cars are a much better investment than buying something brand new. But you won’t just save money: a used car can come with some interesting features that just aren’t found in brand new cars. Here are a few unusual facts about used cars to enlighten you.

  • Standard Table. The first and second generations of the much-loved Honda CR-V came with a standard flip-out picnic table. These SUVs date from 1997 through 2006. Since the table was detachable, you might not find them anymore, but it was still a cool feature.
  • Cassette Player. CD players are slowly leaving new cars, but it might be surprising to know that the last car with an available cassette player was the 2011 Ford Crown Victoria. Also, the 2010 Lexus SC430 came with a standard tape deck.
  • Play a Game. In model year 2003-2007 Saab 9-3 SS models, you can play a game of Pong on the Tech II system. It is hidden under the Airbag/SRS System submenu.
  • Supercars Tested with V8. While the McLaren F1 was still in development, engineers needed to test its gearbox with a powerful engine. They chose a Chevrolet V8 that delivered the same levels of torque the production car would.
