Used Car Reviews

2002 Toyota Sienna1998-2003 Toyota Sienna
Above-average reliability, better-than-average fuel consumption, and good crash-test ratings make the Toyota Sienna a wise used minivan purchase, says Chris Chase, but "..you can expect to pay far more for one of these vans second hand than you would for a comparably equipped domestic minivan."



2002 Ford Taurus SEL1996-2005 Ford Taurus
The Ford Taurus' poor reliability history makes it a used car that's best avoided, advises Chris Chase. However, he reports that it is a comfortable, roomy, and safe sedan, and its "troublesome nature is tempered somewhat by abysmal resale values."


2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder2003-2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The third generation Eclipse, offered as a coupe and convertible, stands out thanks to its sharp angles and aggressive front fascia, says Chris Chase. "The Eclipse offers sporty looks and the potential for decent performance in a reasonably affordable package," he says.


2003 Acura 1.7EL2001-2005 Acura 1.7EL
Available only in Canada, the Acura EL is a better-equipped, mildly restyled version of the Honda Civic, says Chris Chase. The second-generation 1.7EL has Honda's 127 hp 1.7 litre 4 cylinder VTEC engine and has proven reliable, but buyers will find asking prices are high.


2001 Infiniti Q451997-2001 Infiniti Q45
A used Infiniti Q45 remains an under-appreciated player in the super-sedan class, reports Chris Chase. A 1997 model is worth between $7,000 and $9,800 per the Canadian Red Book, a mere fraction of the base car's original $65,000 M.S.R.P.


2004 Kia Sedona2002-2005 Kia Sedona
A safe and fairly reliable vehicle, the seven-passenger Kia Sedona minivan is heavier than other minivans and uses more gas, says Chris Chase. But steep depreciation makes used Sedonas an attractive deal, he says.
