Best used car and where to buy it?
It's getting to be time to get DH a reliable daily driver. Right now, we share a Honda Oddessey and he has a 73 Benz for nice weather weekends. We'd like for it to be under 11K so we don't have to finance and get at least 28 MPG since DH's new commute will be 60 miles RT. Of course, it needs to be reliable, not too expensive to manintain and repair, sort of sporty, two doors is fine as long as it has space for four, and durable since he'll likely keep it for 5 yrs. He hates Toyotas and we've never bought American but are open to it.
We bought his Benz on Ebay, but are debating if it makes more since to go to a dealer. That raises the question of used vs certified pre-owned. We have the luxury of time but are totally overwhelmed by the choices. Is there a site that rates used cars?
