The Best Deals on Used Compact SUVs

As we reported last week, used car prices are set to hit rock bottom this month.

If you've been considering a used compact SUV, you need to check out the following list compiled by Consumer Reports.

They researched current deals on 2006 - 2008 models that have ranked well in reliability.

The previous owners have already taken the large depreciation hit that comes with the first few years of ownership.

Hyundai Tucson Used

The list includes average retail prices you can expect to pay at a dealership. Some of the vehicles have depreciated as much as 40% compared to their original MSRP - so you're saving a lot of money here.

Keep in mind these are dealer prices - you should be able to get an even better deal if you buy from a private party.
