I want to buy a Scooter?
Question by SHiLLySiT: I want to buy a Scooter?
So I’ve recently become a college student (Yayyy) and transportation has become very important; need to get to and from school as well as getting to work. I don’t come from a very wealthy family so I was already looking at waiting for a long time to get a car of my own.
Then today I saw a man on a scooter and I was like, hey! Those must be cheap! Sure enough, I was finding some brand new for $ 700ish. (Obviously I am going to buy one used because its cheaper) I also looked up the laws in California regarding scooters and I DO NOT need a license, registration, or insurance. So this all saves me money!
My problem is, I don’t know where to start. I want a scooter that gets good gas mileage (I saw one that said 100mpg!) and is durable/reliable. Not to mention one for a good price. I know craiglist is a good place to go for used, but what models of scooters should I look for? Any other sites that would be a better alternative to craigslist?

Anytime you buy USED transportation, you are buying someone’s problem child. Used ones on the market may be near the end of their useful life. No one gets rid of a perfectly running mode of transportation unless they are desperate. I would buy new if at all possible. You’ll at least get some kind of guarantee.
