If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I am a big fan of Consumer Reports – particularly for their car reliability ratings. I purchased a 2007 Honda Fit based on it’s very high ratings with them and after 150,000 miles the only issue I’ve had is a few lightbulbs burning out too quickly – not too bad.
Older Honda Civics and Toyotas have always been good choices for reliable (yet still pretty cheap) used cars, but there are really quite a few reliable options out there these days.
In the latest issue of Consumer Reports they had an article that shared a few great choices to consider if you have a budget of $10K, but are still looking for something that is a pretty reliable choice. Here are some of their findings:
2009 Pontiac Vibe
2008 Hyundai Sonata (4 cyl)
2004 Acura TSX
2004 RAV4 (4 cyl)
So if you just happening to be shopping for a cheap reliable car, hopefully this will give you a few good ideas to check out.
Any other super-reliable cars that should be added to this list?
