Used Cars You Should Consider Buying

June 28, 2012

This week, Edmunds.com editors assembled a list of best used cars to consider based on a combination of reliability, safety, value and availability.

They limited their selection to vehicles that are between 2 and 7 years old. These are vehicles that should be dependable for several more years and have already gone through their biggest period of depreciation.

Make sure to consider these vehicles when shopping for a used car.
