Merchants Auto News: Used Toyotas and Hondas nearly sweep Consumer Reports best-of list
While there are plenty of reasons why a driver would choose to buy pre-owned, we’d have to say that a common theme among all of these bargain shoppers is a need for high quality at a great value. If a nameplate doesn’t have a reputation for longevity and durability, then it’s probably not going to serve anything particularly well on the used-car lot. You need a car that was built to withstand the tests of time, trends, weather, what-have-you — one of those brands that still boasts plenty of their ’90s-era vehicles on the road today.
Well, narrowing down the list of competitors can be a little daunting — after all, there’s about 100 years of the modern automotive industry to wade through. (Not that we’d suggesting choosing a Tin Lizzy to commute to work, but you know what we’re getting at here.) Well, Consumer Reports has done the dirty work for you, compiling an exhaustive list of the best used cars for 2015. Lucky for our Hooksett, NH area customers, our used Toyota and used Honda models are well represented.
