Safest Off-Lease Cars to Consider

April 27, 2017

Leasing really started taking off in recent years, which means there's tons of lease-returns coming in right now on vehicles that are two-to-three years old. These are excellent used vehicles to consider purchasing - as the original leasee has taken on the brunt of depreciation, while the vehicle has likely been well-maintained, and should have a long life ahead of it.

Forbes recently compiled a list of what they consider to be the safest off-lease vehicles coming in right now. The safety data was compiled using IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) stats. The full list of vehicles are below.

As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices your local dealers are willing to offer.

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.
