Best Used Cars, 2013

slideshow image

Good news for used-car buyers: Thanks to more vehicles entering the market, prices are finally edging down after hitting record highs during the past two years. The bump in leasing in 2010 will bring a slew of returns come fall, and because new car sales keep heading up, more trade-ins are in the works. So if you wait until 2014, you'll see even better deals.

We picked ten three- and four-year-old vehicles that not only were tops in Kiplinger's rankings for performance, value and safety when they were new, but also got good marks for reliability. (See our story for strategies on how to get the best deal).

Vehicles have automatic transmissions, unless noted otherwise, and all have standard stability control and front, front side and head-protecting airbags. Dealer, private-party and certified prices are averages based on actual transactions reported by for previously owned vehicles.
