Used-car expert Mark Toljagic highlights 10 late-model used cars you can count on
Pre-owned vehicles outsell new models two to one in Canada and for good reason: smart consumers let the first owner take the big depreciation hit — typically a 25 to 50 per cent devaluation in the first few years — allowing prospective second owners to pick up a late-model car or truck at substantial savings. And with today’s automobiles expected to rack up well over 300,000 kilometres before their inevitable date with the crusher, there’s plenty of service life left for the second (and third) owner to enjoy.
Still, while quality is up across the board, some used models are more trouble-free than others. We’ve highlighted 10 of the best-reviewed used models we’ve come across in the past year. We scan popular consumer websites for summaries outlining good and bad cars and trucks based on the testimonials of motorists who’ve documented their ownership experiences online. Our picks are presented in alphabetical order.
