When you are in the market for used cars in Colorado, you have a lot of factors to consider. Finding the best used cars takes some effort unless you know what to look for. Judge the used cars based on their safety ratings, price and features to find the model that's ideal for your needs. At Phil Long Dealerships, we provide you with the best used cars in Colorado, so you can make one stop to get what you need.

The Best Used Cars to Buy

While everyone is looking for something different in their used cars, some models excel above the rest. If you need a budget-friendly used car, consider the Chevy Cobalt. The 2014 Nissan Altima is also a popular choice among people looking for a lower priced car. If you desire something slightly more upscale, there are plenty of used luxury cars in Colorado Springs. Consider driving a used BMW 328 or used Mercedes C300 to show off your style. 

Used AWD cars are very popular in Colorado which is why you might prefer to purchase a Subaru Outback or Jeep Wrangler. As used SUVs continue to draw customers in, you should look at trading in your car for a Ford Escape or Honda CR-V. If you prefer to purchase used cars that put the environment first, opt for the electric Nissan Leaf or a hybrid 2015 Toyota Prius Two instead. Finally, get the job done in a used truck with the ever-popular Ford F-150 XLT.

Best Car Brands to Buy Used

Some brands simply feature more reliability and safer vehicles than others. That's why you might want to consider a used Lexus, Toyota, Mazda, Subaru or Kia as these topped the Consumer Reports listing of the most reliable brands. If safety is your primary concern when shopping for used cars, then we suggest the Genesis, Volvo or Audi brands which consistently rate the highest in safety scores.

Certified Pre-Owned Cars vs. Used Cars

Sure you can save a little money by purchasing used cars in Denver, but you might consider upgrading to a certified pre-owned vehicle instead. These are the highest class of used car sales and the superior option when you are looking for the best investment. They feature low mileage, are only a few years old and come complete with a full inspection. It's like driving a new car on a used car budget. In fact, if you visit our used car dealerships in Colorado, you will see that we are overflowing with certified pre-owned vehicles that make the perfect fit for your family.
