The decision to purchase a new, instead of a new, used vehicle invites us to reflect on the apparent increase in the number of used car purchases over the past two years; This was the result of a shortage of imports of newer cars, which led to a sharp drop in sales and leasing of new cars after the economic collapse of 2008. Unfortunately, the purchase of a used vehicle is considered a risky decision, particularly with regard to the mechanical condition of the vehicle. In contrast, that vehicle may have traveled a great deal of miles or may have been neglected by its former owner. Some cars wear faster than others in design, features, and performance; and most importantly, in the long term.
Choosing to buy a model that may spend a long time in the workshops will lead to spending the money saved from buying a used car. Even if such repairs are covered by the manufacturer or merchant insurance; having a vehicle with permanent maintenance problems is troublesome and has a high risk based on spatial, temporal, and mechanical failures.
To guide used car buyers on the right track, we have identified what our analysis of the most reliable used cars on the market for 2008 and 2009. Each car on our top 10-car list has scored top points in terms of preference, according to the long-term management studies conducted by Consumer Reports and the American J.D. Power and Associates.
Consumer Reports relied mainly on studies of a group of owners of approximately 1.3 million cars; J.D. Power reached its results using the information provided by about 43,700 original owners in 2008 and 31,000 original owners in 2009; This is 3 years after the vehicle was owned. Both sides conducted a survey that included different participants regarding mechanical problems and any other problems they had encountered during the previous 12 months.
