Best Used Car Bargains

March 1, 2012

The guys over at AutoSavant are obsessed when it comes to used-car pricing data. They go to the auctions, keep up with the residual values, and follow the industry closely.

Every once in awhile, they update their "cheat sheet" for potential used-car buyers, where they select the vehicles that will give you the most value for your money.

There are a couple of criteria each vehicle must meet in order to make the list. First, it has to be a good quality vehicle - absolutely no lousy cars allowed on the list. And second, the ideal vehicle, for whatever reason, just wasn't popular with buyers. That means the residual values have fallen quickly, resulting in a much more attractive price.

Many of these vehicles have been discontinued, which explains why they're such good bargains right now. Visit the AutoSavant Cheat Sheet for more detailed summaries for each vehicle.

Here is the list of recommended used car bargains:

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
