Best Midsized Cars Under $15K

October 1, 2015

For many car buyers, midsized cars can be the best of all worlds. They are big enough for a family, but not too big to feel overwhelming. They can offer a lot in terms of safety, comfort, fuel efficiency, and the latest features and technology. And even more importantly, you don't have to break the bank to purchase one.

US News & World Report's Best Cars Blog has a rather lengthy list of recommended used midsized cars, all for under $15,000, including the 2009 Honda Accord, 2010 Mercury Milan, 2010 Toyota Prius, and 2009 Mazda Mazda6. A look at the list is below.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
