Nothing is cheap/economical. Expect to pay S$30K at a minimum to get something drivable that still has come COE left on it. adpost.com/sg is one place to look. do a google search on used cars singapore and you'll see quite a few online sites.

no need to an expat car la. just shop around in garages and newspaper for your dream car in the open market. one thing to remember, running a car is expensive in singapore, so dont think you can just get a cheapo run-around with a small budget.

There are many budget cars in the market actually. If you are getting used cars from dealers, there be 4 advance payments to be made. They are your first installement, insurance, transfer fee and agreement fee. If you are looking at brand new, then it will only be your first installment and insurance.
