Used Vehicles for Every Budget

Consumer Reports has long advocated buying used as a way for consumers to get the biggest bang for their buck – but picking out a good used car from a sea of bad ones has never been easy. Consumer Reports has compiled a handy list of reliable, affordable, and safe used cars for model years 2005 through 2014 to help consumers find the best small car, sedan, or SUV.

The full report is available in Consumer Reports’ Annual Auto Issue, on newsstands now, and at the 2015 Autos Spotlight page on Highlighted are the best small cars, sedans, and SUVs available in four price ranges: from $10,000 or less up to $25,000. Each performed well in CR’s testing when new and had above-average reliability for the model years shown, based on CR’s Annual Auto Survey. And all models came standard with electronic stability control (ESC) unless otherwise noted.

“There are so many safe and reliable used cars for buyers to choose from no matter what they plan on spending,” said Mark Rechtin, Consumer Reports’ Cars Content Development Team Leader. “We’ve made it easy for shoppers to narrow down their search of which models to consider.”
