Please NOTE: Used Car Lists Still Available

We are receiving emails asking “Why did you stop the used car lists?”

We didn’t – we just had to move the lists because they were getting so large that both lists were becoming unwieldy in the blog format we work with here on the site. Just look up and you will see the link to “Used Car Bargains.”

We apologize for the inconvenience of having to follow the link, but can assure you it’s worth it – both lists are not only current, but bigger and better.

For new readers, the Used Car Reviews is a list of used cars that we reviewed (as used cars) with guideline pricing – both wholesale (loan) and retail.

Used Car Bargains are used car models, that, for a variety of reasons, are typically bargains as used cars – lots of value for less money than other cars in the same segment, and not a bad car in the bunch. All the cars on the list are at least good cars and some of them are great cars, and all of them come in at a good price/value ratio.

Check it out!

  1. used car bargains = good info

  2. I agree, good stuff. It’s too bad I can’t pay one of you to go with me when I go looking for another car this weekend. I would love to have this sort of advice available to me real-time as I’m looking at different used cars.

  3. Here’s a SUV you can add to your used car bargains: 2006 Jeep Commander. My brother just picked one up for $23,200 and it is a Commander Ltd.(V8) AWD, loaded, with only 7300 miles. The dealers have the new ones just sitting on the lots, collecting dust. It’s just priced all wrong new.

  4. I would consider a used car, but I bought one once and it needed a lot of repairs. It wasn’t just the money, it was the hassle factor of getting the car fixed. I can’t afford that kind of time out of my work and family schedule. So I buy new cars now.

  5. As usual, I agree with all of your recommendations.

    I think the Saab 9-5 deserves its own article on here; as a used car (about 3 years old, like you said) it delivers a driving experience WAY beyond its asking price. As long as you don’t treat it like a cheap date, it’s very reliable. And the little thing that makes it a Saab and not a Volvo; every version of the car, from the base Linear on up to the Aero, is seriously fast. Not off the line, but try merging on the freeway, in the 40-80 mph range. You’ll see.

    Also, if you mention the Focus, you might wanna talk about the SVT Focus too. Compared to other FWD performance cars, this one is almost too cheap to be true, and unlike the Civic Si and DC-body Integra, there are plenty of un-modded specimens out there.

  6. Good point about the Focus SVT. About the Saab 9-5, really, you could do a whole piece on Saab in general. Their Saab-ized SUV is also starting to really take its lumps from a residual perspective as well. Maybe a little more text next month…

  7. Like kenblundh said, too bad you can’t come with me to look at used cars for my daughter. She has expensive tastes, doesn’t want what all the other kids have which is used Toyotas, Hondas, or big SUV’s, and I want her in something safe that also not going to break down. Maybe the Saab is the way to go, but I don’t think she likes the the looks.
