Top 10 Most Dependable Used Cars Ever

If you're in the market for a dependable used car, it's hard to choose the best one since there are so many models available. Maybe what you need is a scientific method! Recently, Yahoo! Autos published a guide to the 10 best used cars determined through a large statistical study based on real dealer auctions.

The study looked at almost 300,000 vehicles and factored in things like durability, quality and owner satisfaction. Tied for top of the list are the Lexus LX470 and Toyota Land Cruiser, both of which were called "the automotive version of granite." Other cars on the list are the Lexus LS, Toyota Camry, and Honda S2000.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect
