Used cares were increasingly hard to find for consumers in 2011. It seemed American's were holding onto their vehicles longer, and that meant finding those gems amidst potential duds took time, research, prime auto financing and a little luck.
Here are a few of the best used cars of 2011.
1. 2008 Honda CR-V LX. This vehicle won the Best in Class Small Crossover for a variety of reasons. It was known for its reliability, space, quality ride and great fuel economy. This mid-size vehicle provided a great balance of size and economy.
2. 2004-2009 Nissan Altima. This sedan got high marks in both looks, speed and safety - making it a great family car for the mom or dad who has to jet to the office and then to soccer practice. The Altima was a prime used car candidate during these years with the new interior and speed upgrades.
3. 2009 Toyota Camry. Once again, Toyota has produced a car with a great reliability rating - essential for those considering a used car buy. Known for its ability to go and go without end, a car buyer could buy this vehicle with over 100,000 miles on it and use it for 100,000 more.
