6 Used Cars With Top Safety Marks

November 12, 2015

Next to price, safety is one of the biggest deciding factors when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. After all, a car or truck that doesn't keep you and your passengers safe while traveling from Point A to Point B is not something you would want to sink your hard-earned money into.

US News & World Reports recently released their top used car picks when it comes to safety. Even better? All six vehicles cost and average of less than $21,000. Vehicles on the list include the 2012 Honda Civic, 2011 Ford Taurus and 2011 Chevrolet Malibu.

If you're considering purchasing any of these top safety picks, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the best deals being offered in your area.

VehicleAvg. Price Paid
2011 Chevrolet Malibu$12,208-$14,471
2011 Ford Taurus$12,044-$16,202
2012 Buick Verano$15,943-$17,004
2012 Honda Accord$15,462-$20,895
2012 Honda Civic$11,704-$19,475
2012 Toyota Prius$17,225-$18,444

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
