about used cars

If you’ve come here looking for a used or certified pre-owned car, truck, SUV, crossover, hatchback, hybrid or convertible, then you’re in the right place. Edmunds has everything you need to know about buying or selling a used vehicle, including Carfax vehicle history reports, dealership listings and pricing information, expert car reviews, consumer car reviews, car dealership reviews, car price comparisons, car appraisal calculators, images and videos, technical features and specs, user forums and more.

At Edmunds, you’ll be able to browse thousands of used cars, trucks and SUVs for sale with special offers, appraise your current car, and research the car, SUV or truck of your dreams. You can limit your search to certified pre-owned (or CPO) vehicles for sale and be a click away from articles by our experts that will give you the best car shopping and buying tips and advice. Let’s take a closer look at each of these aids to easier used-car shopping.

The INVENTORY tab at the top of the page allows you to browse used cars for sale from popular makes such as Ford, Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Infiniti, Acura and Subaru. The inventory tool allows you to cast a much wider net than simply visiting your local dealership’s website. Start with the make and model of the vehicle that you’re interested in. You’ll have the option to refine your search by price, distance, model year and mileage. If you’re looking for specific options or features, a certain trim level or a specific color, there are more advanced search filters available, including engine type, fuel type, drivetrain, powertrain, airbags, air-conditioning and much more. After you find the car, SUV, truck or hybrid that you’re interested in, select the listing to check out the VIN details page for that vehicle and get more information. There you’ll find a description of the vehicle from the dealer, vehicle features and options, contact information for that dealership, dealer reviews, a ballpark insurance estimate, and a link to see a Carfax vehicle history report.

The APPRAISE tab at the top of the page lets you enter your car’s basic information, odometer reading, trim level, and overall condition. Then Edmunds provides you with the True Market Value (TMV) for your used car or vehicle. Edmunds’s True Market Value or used car value is is a great starting point for negotiation of a used-car sale between a private buyer and seller. This is an “as is” value that does not include any warranties. The final sales price depends on the car’s actual condition and local market factors. You can use this used car value estimate to price your car for sale or to negotiate a trade-in for a new, CPO, or previously owned car for sale from a local dealer. The used car value estimate is also useful for assessing retail pricing at a car dealer. You can try it out by clicking the “APPRAISE” tab, above. Once you enter your vehicle details, you will receive three estimates for your used car’s value: “Trade-in” is what you can expect a dealer to offer you for your used car; “Private Party” is what you might expect to earn if you sold the pre-owned vehicle yourself; and “Dealer Retail” is what you might expect to pay if you were buying this used model used at a dealership. If the vehicle is new enough, you’ll also see a price that says “Certified Used Price.” This price estimates what the dealership might sell it for as a certified pre-owned vehicle.

The RESEARCH tab points you to our expert analysis of the make and model of the car you select. You can read our editors’ reviews and learn about each generation of the vehicle you’re interested in. From there, you can narrow the focus of your car buying research by selecting a particular model year and learning more by checking out photos of the cars, researching local dealership listings, car valuation, consumer reviews, editors’ reviews, pros & cons, features & specs, and safety information. That’s a world of information. And we’ve put it all right at your fingertips.

Are you thinking about trading in your vehicle at the dealership or selling it yourself? Find out what your used car is worth with our True Market Value appraisal tool. Enter the year, make and model to get started. Make sure you know the options on your vehicle and the current odometer reading. Be honest about the condition level. Most cars will fall in the “average” to “clean” range.

The appraisal tool will give you three prices: “Trade-in” is what you can expect a dealer to offer you. “Private Party” is what you might expect to earn if you sold the vehicle yourself. “Dealer Retail” is what you might expect to pay if you were buying this model used at a dealership. If the vehicle is new enough, you’ll also see a price that says “Certified Used Price.” This price estimates what the dealer might sell it for as a CPO vehicle.

If you are hesitant about buying a traditional used car, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned vehicle. These vehicles tend to be newer, have gone through a more detailed inspection process and come with a limited warranty. The Edmunds inventory tool will have an option to sort the list to show only CPO vehicles. You can also go directly to the CPO cars page.

Explore Car-Buying Articles: If you’re unsure about the next steps in buying a used car — or car buying in general — Edmunds has research articles that can help. Take a look at those we’ve linked to on this page, or visit our research main page for a full list of articles that have been written by Edmunds car-shopping experts.

    What Clients Says

    I want to congratulate you and your company for your outstanding service. Not only did you respond very quickly to my query about a product but when I received your response in the afternoon, I placed the order and couldn’t believe it when the postman delivered the order at 11.00 am the very next day. Not only exceptional in normal terms but I live in a very remote part of Scotland that many companies won’t even deliver to.

    Terry S , Argyll

    Order received today, highly delighted with item. Many thanks for your excellent service.

    Kevin B , East Yorkshire

    Just a quick note to say “thank you” for your excellent service. I was a bit worried about cutting the mat, but it cut perfectly well with a pair of scissors.

    John W , Worcestershire

    Just to let you know that the compressor arrived today.

    L. Tinckham , France

    Owning a light coloured vehicle that shows up tar residue and other road grime. I have found two hidden gems on the Care4car website that have revitalised the appearance of my bodywork. Requiring very little effort to apply, the Smart Clay bar and Smart Detailing Wax are two products that have impressed me so much I have taken the time to write this review on them.

    about used cars

    If you’ve come here looking for a used or certified pre-owned car, truck, SUV, crossover, hatchback, hybrid or convertible, then you’re in the right place. Edmunds has everything you need to know about buying or selling a used vehicle, including Carfax vehicle history reports, dealership listings and pricing information, expert car reviews, consumer car reviews, car dealership reviews, car price comparisons, car appraisal calculators, images and videos, technical features and specs, user forums and more.

    At Edmunds, you’ll be able to browse thousands of used cars, trucks and SUVs for sale with special offers, appraise your current car, and research the car, SUV or truck of your dreams. You can limit your search to certified pre-owned (or CPO) vehicles for sale and be a click away from articles by our experts that will give you the best car shopping and buying tips and advice. Let’s take a closer look at each of these aids to easier used-car shopping.

    The INVENTORY tab at the top of the page allows you to browse used cars for sale from popular makes such as Ford, Honda, Toyota, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Infiniti, Acura and Subaru. The inventory tool allows you to cast a much wider net than simply visiting your local dealership’s website. Start with the make and model of the vehicle that you’re interested in. You’ll have the option to refine your search by price, distance, model year and mileage. If you’re looking for specific options or features, a certain trim level or a specific color, there are more advanced search filters available, including engine type, fuel type, drivetrain, powertrain, airbags, air-conditioning and much more. After you find the car, SUV, truck or hybrid that you’re interested in, select the listing to check out the VIN details page for that vehicle and get more information. There you’ll find a description of the vehicle from the dealer, vehicle features and options, contact information for that dealership, dealer reviews, a ballpark insurance estimate, and a link to see a Carfax vehicle history report.

    The APPRAISE tab at the top of the page lets you enter your car’s basic information, odometer reading, trim level, and overall condition. Then Edmunds provides you with the True Market Value (TMV) for your used car or vehicle. Edmunds’s True Market Value or used car value is is a great starting point for negotiation of a used-car sale between a private buyer and seller. This is an “as is” value that does not include any warranties. The final sales price depends on the car’s actual condition and local market factors. You can use this used car value estimate to price your car for sale or to negotiate a trade-in for a new, CPO, or previously owned car for sale from a local dealer. The used car value estimate is also useful for assessing retail pricing at a car dealer. You can try it out by clicking the “APPRAISE” tab, above. Once you enter your vehicle details, you will receive three estimates for your used car’s value: “Trade-in” is what you can expect a dealer to offer you for your used car; “Private Party” is what you might expect to earn if you sold the pre-owned vehicle yourself; and “Dealer Retail” is what you might expect to pay if you were buying this used model used at a dealership. If the vehicle is new enough, you’ll also see a price that says “Certified Used Price.” This price estimates what the dealership might sell it for as a certified pre-owned vehicle.

    The RESEARCH tab points you to our expert analysis of the make and model of the car you select. You can read our editors’ reviews and learn about each generation of the vehicle you’re interested in. From there, you can narrow the focus of your car buying research by selecting a particular model year and learning more by checking out photos of the cars, researching local dealership listings, car valuation, consumer reviews, editors’ reviews, pros & cons, features & specs, and safety information. That’s a world of information. And we’ve put it all right at your fingertips.

    Are you thinking about trading in your vehicle at the dealership or selling it yourself? Find out what your used car is worth with our True Market Value appraisal tool. Enter the year, make and model to get started. Make sure you know the options on your vehicle and the current odometer reading. Be honest about the condition level. Most cars will fall in the “average” to “clean” range.

    The appraisal tool will give you three prices: “Trade-in” is what you can expect a dealer to offer you. “Private Party” is what you might expect to earn if you sold the vehicle yourself. “Dealer Retail” is what you might expect to pay if you were buying this model used at a dealership. If the vehicle is new enough, you’ll also see a price that says “Certified Used Price.” This price estimates what the dealer might sell it for as a CPO vehicle.

    If you are hesitant about buying a traditional used car, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned vehicle. These vehicles tend to be newer, have gone through a more detailed inspection process and come with a limited warranty. The Edmunds inventory tool will have an option to sort the list to show only CPO vehicles. You can also go directly to the CPO cars page.

    Fifteen Best Used Car Choices for Smart Buyers

    By Keith Griffin. Used Cars Expert

    Keith Griffin has been an automotive journalist and new car reviewer for more than 13 years. His experience as a journalist dates back 35 years. He is currently immediate president of the New England Motor Press Association.

    One person s best used car is another person s nightmare but this list of the 15 best used cars by segment manages to hit the mark in many ways.

    This list was compiled by Edmunds.com. which I consistently rank as the best online source for automotive information. Its pricing on used cars favors the consumer and its research is always in-depth and thorough. I would rank it second only to Consumer Reports as a valuable resource for used car buyers.

    The Edmunds.com list of best used cars isn t ranked in order but I m going to take the liberty of doing that for you. I am customizing the list to make it a true ranking of the best used cars. However, because it is based on segment, there will be better used cars out there than some listed here.

    Best Used Cars for 2012

    Compact Sedan: 2005-2010 Hyundai Elantra – This would have to rank as the best overall basic transportation on the list. It s not going to win a lot of style awards but it is going to be dependable.

    Midsize Sedan: 2005-2010 Nissan Altima – frankly I have always wondered how this car is not the best-selling car in America. Used Altimas are going to become great values thanks to the introduction of the new model.

    Wagon: 2005-2010 Pontiac Vibe – Kudos to Edmunds.com for including a discontinued model. A used Pontiac is going to be just fine and the fact that is basically a Toyota Matrix make it an ever better value.

    Coupe: 2005-2010 BMW 3 Series – Edmunds really should have made a category called premium coupe and include the 3 series there.

    Continue Reading Below

    This was the first generation, in my opinion, that the 3 series became a great car.

    Compact SUV/Crossover: 2005-2010 Honda CR-V – There s nary a complaint one can make about the CR-V. It s a solid vehicle that might sell at a good price as this is being written in June 2012 because the compact market is cooling off as gas prices drop.

    Large Sedan: 2006-2010 Hyundai Azera – Talk about a car that gets little respect and the Azera comes to mind. It s a premium sedan at a domestic price. It s a used car you will never regret buying, especially when making monthly payments.

    Minivan/Van: 2005-2010 Honda Odyssey – Yada, yada, yada the Odyssey wins more accolades, but there s a reason: it s a much better minivan for everyday use than the Sienna, which dads may not like driving.

    Luxury: 2005-2010 Infiniti G35/G37 – Owning a used Infiniti G37 may not mean lots of heads turning your way as you drive by for the average person but people in the know will respect your wisdom and good taste. One caveat, though, would be the convertible model. I drove a 2010 Infiniti G37 convertible that had a small leak during heavy rains.

    Hybrid: 2005-2010 Toyota Prius – There are other hybrids out there, but nobody is doing it as well as Toyota for the last 10 years. About.com has a great video on buying a used hybrid that should be helpful.

    Sport Compact: 2005-2010 Subaru Impreza WRX – This is really a great sports car dollar for dollar but, please, don t buy one for a teenage driver. It s a vehicle best left to mature drivers.

    Convertible: 2005-2010 Mazda Miata – The Miata, also known as the Miata MX-5, is the perfect used car for a midlife crisis. It puts a smile on your face when you drive it and isn t going to get you in trouble like a used Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro might.

    Midsize SUV/Crossover: 2005-2010 Ford Explorer – No list is perfect and I would include this as Exhibit A. Hyundai, Kia and Toyota make better crossovers than the Explorer in this generation and I m going to say the same thing about the current generation, too.

    Large SUV/Crossover: 2005-2010 Chevrolet Tahoe – Is bland better? Again, there is nothing wrong with the Tahoe, but I consider it uninspired. The Asians do this category better.

    Compact Truck: 2005-2010 Toyota Tacoma – No arguments from me mostly because I don t consider myself much of an expert on pickups. By the way, About s truck expert Dale Wickell offers good advice on how to buy a used pickup .

    Large Truck: 2005-2010 Ford F-150 – Again, no arguments from me. Plus, I don t want to anger the Chevy and Dodge pickup owners out there with strong opinions.

    For those of you keeping track at home, here is how the list of the best used cars was compiled. A team of Edmunds.com editors assembled the list, which emphasizes the most important criteria to consider when researching and deciding on a used vehicle: reliability, safety, value and availability. Eligibility was limited to vehicles ranging from two to seven years old.
