You Can Satisfy Yourself It Is Better to Buy Saxon “Six” Than a Car Costing $200 or $300 More

You can follow any one of three different ways of judging motor car values and prove conclusively that it is better to buy Saxon “Six” than a car costing $200 or $300 more.

For instance, if you are going to the car you buy on the basis of its quality consider these facts:

Semi-floating axle, Exide storage battery, Wagner starting and lighting system, and Warner Steering gear, as eleven of its important features.

You will find two or more of these features on 14 cars, ranging in price from $3000 to $10,000.

You will find two or more of these features on 22 cars ranging in price from $1350 to $3000.

You will find two or more of these features on 24 cars ranging in price from $1150 to $2500.
