It’s that time of year again. The new car models are out and everyone’s done talking about them, for the most part, at least. Now consumer focus starts shifting towards saving money and the used car market. What vehicles will auto sales college graduates be selling in used car dealerships this year? Let’s take a look at some of the likely candidates in 2015:
The Toyota Camry is famous for its comfort and durability. These aren’t the kind of cars that will have to visit the auto technician training graduate that often. Buying one second hand is quite an affordable option, whether it’s the 2005 sedan or, for a little more kick with your savings, the hybrid versions that came out between 2007 and 2011.
The Hyundai Accent was always a reliable car, but since entering its third generation in 2006, it has been a rather stylish one as well. With 110 horsepower under the hood and five speed manual transmission, it’s a powerful vehicle, too. Now consider that the 2011 model is still covered by Hyundai’s 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty even when purchased used, you start to see how the only real decision may be what type of automotive painting job you want it to come with.
2007 Honda Civic
There’s no other way to put it, the 2007 Honda Civic is a nice car. It’s available as a sedan, a coupe and even as a hybrid. Some versions even offer as much as 197 horsepower. A great car in its day, it’s still quite reliable. Considering it’s possible to pick one up for under $8,000, the term affordable, durable and quality may spring to mind.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
No used car list would be complete without at least one truck option. The 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the kind of truck that can tow up to 10,500 lbs, has ample space in the pickup part and offers quite the comfortable ride in the cab. There are various engines available for this model including a 367 horsepower 6.0 litre V-8. This is a powerful vehicle available at quite reasonable prices.
Getting a luxury car for a reasonable price is always a nice option. With the 2010 to 2013 models of the Cadillac SRX, you can do just that. Now, they aren’t exactly giving them away, but a car like this in the $30,000 to $40,000 range is quite a good deal, especially seeing as this is an SUV that has at a minimum a 265-horsepower 3.0-liter direct-injected V-6 engine but also all the nice bells and whistles inside that remind you it’s a Cadillac.
Could you see yourself selling any of these used cars? Are there any other vehicles that should have made the list?
