Best Used Cars Under $8,000

August 4, 2016

The average new car now sells for nearly $34,000, which is out-of-reach for many. However, if you're looking for a reliable vehicle and willing to forgo the latest tech and convenience options, you're in luck.

This week, KBB released a list of the most reliable used cars under $8,000. The models on the list are 2006 to 2010 models, with the top pick being the 2006 Toyota Avalon. Check out the full list below.

If you're shopping for a car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and RydeShopper to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.

12006 Toyota Avalon
22007 Honda Accord
32010 Honda Civic
42008 Toyota Corolla
52008 Ford Crown Victoria
62006 Subaru Outback
72007 Nissan Maxima
82007 Subaru Impreza
92006 Mazda MX-5 Miata

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.
