Best Used Trucks Under $26,000

October 24, 2013

Last week, we reported on a list of the top certified pre-owned vehicles you can purchase for under $25,000.
This week is for truck lovers -- Bankrate recently released their list of the top six certified pre-owned trucks you can purchase for less than $26,000.

Again the list is based on information from automotive research firm Vincentric, which recently reported its 2013 awards for the best certified pre-owned cars in the US. Top trucks on the list include the Volkswagen Routan, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, and Nissan Xtera.

If you're considering adding one of these trucks to your garage, don't forget to use the free CarWoo Deal Finder for even greater savings. And be sure to check out TrueCar Pre-Negotiated Prices to compare real prices where you live.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show 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.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
