Kelley Blue Book names top-10 used cars under $8,000
By Jonathan Welsh | The Wall Street Journal –
With the average price of a new vehicle at more than $30,000, a growing
number of car shoppers are turning to the used market. Indeed, used cars
have gotten so popular that many models are hard to find. There have even
been cases of used cars selling for more than new ones.
But used-car buyers in general are looking for bargains by avoiding the
depreciation that hits new cars in the first year or two of ownership.
Often shoppers are working on tight budgets with a maximum price they are able
Kelley Blue Book, which provides auto-industry pricing information and
analysis, released a list of what it considers the top 10 used cars for
less than $8,000. The prices are based on the company’s well-known Blue Book
Value calculations for used cars from the 2002 model year and newer.
The vehicles that made the list have, according to Kelley, “the most
appealing mixes of reliability, versatility and desirability, with an
emphasis on track record.” It is an interesting group.
Here they are, with Blue Book values as of December, 2011:
Step forward WINNERS. YOU GUYS ROCK!

2004 Ford Crown Victoria, $7,970 (ask a cop or FBI guy why)
