Vista Auto, your Summit County Car Dealer, would like to share with you the 10 best used cars to buy; recently picked by Kelley Blue Book.
Auto journalists love crowing about new cars, but when it comes to used cars, reviews aren't as important as a deep dive into owner satisfaction surveys, true cost-of-ownership estimates and resale value statistics. So your used car Dealer in Summit County, Vista Auto would like to share with you the best way to save some money and get a great car at the same time.
A new Hyundai Elantra is a bargain starting at $14,145, but a used Hyundai Elantra is an absolute steal. A 2007 model, for instance, can be bought on the friendly side of eight grand, gets 27 mpg and is a roomy, well-finished car. Second owners are covered under the 5-year, 60,000-mile warranty unless they buy through Hyundai's certified pre-owned program, but that can tack a few thousand dollars on to the price.
No surprise here. Honda's Accord has long been respected by the auto press and for good reason. It consistently scores high on the J.D. Power and Associates long-term-dependability studies and it maintains a high resale value year after year. Finding an decent used Accord for sale in Summit County can be a somewhat time consuming process, so save some time and pay your Summit County used car dealer a visit to see what we have to offer.
The top ranking large sedan in J.D. Power's long-term-dependability study for 2010 is - the Mercury Montego. This was the Ford sub-brand's version of the Five Hundred, which was Ford's temporary replacement for the Taurus. Both the Five Hundred and Montego were produced from 2004 to 2007.
This SUV tops J.D. Power's 3-year dependability ratings and its resale ratings, which makes sense. The CR-V is affordable yet spacious for a small SUV, and has a gleaming reputation for quality. Since the 1990s this 4-cylinder has offered a winning combination of a carlike ride and truck utility, while still posting respectable fuel-economy numbers.
This on-road-optimized crossover SUV also tops dependability and resale ratings. In fact this may be one of the few vehicles that are better purchased used than new. The Highlander has been available since 2001, but if you're looking to pack in people, start your search with the 2004 model, when Toyota introduced third-row seating and stability control. For your Summit County best used cars, look no further than Vista Auto.
The sheen of the Infiniti G35 is somewhat dulled now that the company has updated it to the current 330-horsepower G37, but when compared with its used-car competition, the G35 still shines brightly. A 2006, 6-speed manual G35 Coupe has a 298-horsepower V6 powerhouse under the hood and the driving manners of a BMW 3-Series.
The Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series may have the edge over Cadillac these days when it comes to prestige, but when it comes to long-term reliability, those cars can't touch the humble Cadillac DTS. In fact, for the past three years, Cadillac's sedans have ranked at or near the top in J.D. Power dependability surveys.
The Tacoma for sale in Summit County is tops for both reliability and resale value. Like many pickups, the Tacoma boasts a variety of body styles, with regular and Xtracab (extended cab) versions dating back to the 1990s and Double Cab (crew cab) from 2001. So, if you are looking for used cars in Summit County pay one of our three locations a visit and see if we can get you into the perfect new used car.
Among truck lovers, nothing has the reputation of the Ford F-150. This tough work truck has been going strong in one form or another since the 1940s. Ford F-Series trucks score high for dependability and have unbeatable resale value for their segment. The latest-generation F-150 was just launched in 2009, so anyone looking for one of these haulers used is probably looking to shop one of the past two generations. Since this has been America's best-selling vehicle for the past 33 years, there's plenty of selection!
For the merely affluent, buying a new Porsche 911 can be a humbling experience. The price for the base-model rear-wheel-drive Carrera starts at $77,800. But just because you can't gather that kind of cash doesn't mean you don't deserve this amazing driving machine. Dial back your expectations to a 2005 model Carrera and you're talking about a vehicle with a starting price of less than $40,000. And Porsche vehicles always get high marks for long-term reliability; the brand takes top marks for both customer satisfaction and long-term reliability from J.D. Power and Associates.
