11 Used Cars With Top Safety Ratings
If you're looking for a late-model used car and safety is a top priority, then I have good news for you. Due to the large number of leases started two to three years ago, the industry is now expecting to see 1.8 million vehicles come off lease in the coming weeks.
It's predicted that late-model used vehicles will see a 2.5% drop in price each year for the next three years. Forbes has more details on the lease-return situation, along with detailed safety info on each of the top-rated models (see below for the full list of vehicles).
