Top used cars to buy according to mechanics
If you are looking for a reliable used car, it makes sense to consult consumer review sites and friends and family to find out what cars cause the least amount of trouble. A recent study on the blog Motoramic has a different approach to finding the most reliable cars, and it’s something buyers should pay attention to.
Independent professionals who work on and deal with used cars on a daily basis were surveyed for the study. They don’t have the bias that a typical car owner has, and they deal with hundreds of cars on a monthly basis, rather than just one or two. Car owners can often overlook problems, and tend to be biased toward one or two brands due to past experiences.
GM had the most number of vehicles on the list, with six out of the 10 spots on the list. The Saturn L200 tops the list, with the four cylinder models showing to be more reliable than other midsize sedans from the era. Both Buick and Chevrolet had two models each on the list as well. Buick models have proven for years to be very good cars in the used market and can be had for fair prices at places such as http://www.enterprisecarsales.com/buick.
Non-GM models on the list include the Jeep Cherokee, Ford Crown Victoria and BMW Z4, in addition to a less popular Infiniti model, the M35.
