Eleven Toyota models are in Consumer Reports’ best used vehicles list

Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2014

The Toyota family of vehicles has 11 models included by the Consumer Reports in its list of best used vehicles for the 2004-2013 model years. The list contains the top small cars, sedans and sports utility vehicles that performed well in testing and logged above-average reliability.

In the $15,000-to-$20,000 range, the best small cars to purchase were the 2012-2013 Hyundai Elantra and the 2011-2013 Subaru Impreza, with Consumer Reports saying that they were as spacious and comfortable as larger, more expensive vehicles.

The best sedans were the 2011-2012 Toyota Camry, 2010-2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid and 2008 Acura TL, with their fuel economy, reliability and a comfortable ride being cited as while they were on the list. The SUVs were the 2006-2007 Lexus RX and 2009-2010 Subaru Forester.

Consumer Reports praised the Forester for its easy access and the best view among the tested SUVs. The magazine recommended a total of 28 vehicles. Six were from the Honda and Acura family while only three vehicles were from the Detroit 3, including the Pontiac Vibe that developed and built with Toyota.

Consumer Report also listed 22 used vehicles buyers should avoid, 16 of which are domestic brand vehicles. Included in the list are the 1.8-liter Chevrolet Cruze and the Mini Cooper S, mainly because they have multiple years of much-worse-than-average overall reliability.
