Used Mid-Size SUVS Offer Best Value

By July 2, 2011

Follow me on:

Now that gas prices are falling, your best value in a used vehicle might be a mid-size SUV because their prices are expected to flatten or drop for the remainder of 2011 while other used car prices continue to increase.

According to Wayne Westring, manager, RVI Analytical Services, demand is expected to less for mid-size SUVs, which makes them more price sensitive. It's possible to score better prices than for a full-size sedan, a segment where prices are rising quickly.

Now, there are some things to consider. The most important would be fuel economy. You're going to pay a little more at the pump depending on what model of used SUV that you purchase. Jason Fogelson, About's guide to SUVs, can offer you insights on the best SUVs on the market - and most fuel efficient.

But, and some people fail to factor this in, the savings from buying a mid-size SUV might more than make up for the higher fuel spending. The government fuel economy website has an excellent tool for helping you estimate what your annual fuel costs are going to be.

Great article, at our used car lot we have seen consumers taking advantage of some fine used SUV’s. You can get one less than ever before and finally be able to afford that SUV with a third row seat. Thanks Kelly on Used Cars.

Color is really a distraction and does not improve readability

The possible applications of the Read to Me function has
many publishers worried.
