The Most Reliable 2013 Models

March 21, 2013

People often ask me: "Is it better to buy new or used?" - the answer is... it depends. If you're going to keep the vehicle until the wheels fall off, then go ahead and buy the new vehicle, otherwise, it makes more financial sense to buy used.

So, if you're thinking about buying a new car and you intend to keep it for the long-haul, then this will be of interest:
Forbes just released a list of 2013 model-year vehicles that they're predicting can run for 250,000 miles - or even more-with proper care.

On the list: the Acura RDX, Lexus RX 350, Mazda MX-5 Miata, and Toyota Yaris. Be sure to check out the list below, and as always, I recommend you use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to see what these vehicles are selling for in your local area.
