These are the best cars from 2003 to 2011 that you can buy used.

I know I don’t post a lot, but I have dug days of research into used cars recently. I have compiled a list of the best used cars you can buy, with their corresponding years.

If you actually decide to base your next purchase off of my list, and I ruin your life with a crappy car, it was the previous owner, not me. I am not responsible for ruining your life. If you want more accurate advice, consult Consumer Reports, which is where I got my data from.

Note: Every one of these cars comes with a manual transmission. Maybe not standard, most likely optional in 80% of these cars, but they are an option.

All data was taken from a 2013 copy of Consumer Reports. Results were taken after the cars were put through complex algorithms.
