Winning When Buying a Used Car

Used Cars

Let’s face it, buying a car brings on a mixture of emotions. Everyone loves getting a new vehicle. But when you get a new car, you never know for sure how it’s going to run, if you’ll like it beyond the showroom, or if it will really be everything the ads say it will. And if you’re buying a used car, those questions are compounded by the fact it had a previous owner and wear and tear you will never completely know about.

Fortunately, for individuals currently in the market for a new used car, you have the advantage of seeing reviews and reports to help you know what car may be best for you.

Luxury SUV

When you think of , you may think of an average, run-of-the-mill vehicle. But a used luxury car like the BMWx3 can be a great buy. According to CarandDriver.com/reviews/2013-bmw-x3-xdrive28i-test-review, the BMWx3 is a “luxury, compact, crossover” that is great as a sporty, upscale vehicle as well as an all-terrain, all weather SUV too. Some of the es:

  • Mixes luxury and utility.
  • Twin-scroll turbocharging.
  • Separate spent exhaust for more power.
  • 60 mph in 6.2 seconds.

BMW is also hosting sales on this vehicle through April 30th of this year.

US News and World Report ranked the Mazda 3 as a great used car to buy. They listed it:

  • #1 in Affordable Small Cars.
  • #1 in Hatchbacks.

All models have four-cylinder engines, and can run from 148-263 horsepower. The majority of Mazda3 owners state that no matter what model you buy, “you will be very pleased with Mazda3’s performance”. Some Mazda3’s can run up to 40 mpg, and they are known to be nimble, but accurate in its handling making one of the “most-fun-cars-to-drive”.

Quality on a Budget

Although most like luxury and have a heart for the performance cars, many American’s are very budget conscious today. ConsumerReports.org has been a long trusted source for car buyers, and they list the Hyundai Sonata as a ‘best used car sedan’ to buy. Their reviewer writes that the Sonata:

  • Is economical and efficient.
  • Has “a decent ride”.
  • Secure handling.
  • Responsive four-cylinder engine.
  • 23 mpg overall.

AutoTrader.com lists a number of used Sonatas that range from a 2011 with almost 66,000 miles for $15,878 in Nashua, New Hampshire. To a 2007 Sonata with 61,397 miles for just under $10,000 in San Antonio, Texas.

Family Style

Toyota has become increasingly popular over the last number of years with their Toyota Highlander. It is a V6, midsize to large SUV that is a quiet, comfortable ride for anyone with a family or a few passengers to haul around. For a large vehicle it gets great gas mileage running at about 19 mpg on average. It is another Consumer Reports favorite, and in 2006 or later models you can find .

Whatever you are looking for, there is a used car to meet your needs. Check out some reviews, and drive away in a car you’ll love.
