Chrysler Minivan, GMC Sierra: Best Used Car Finds For October 5, 2012 Page 2

October 5, 2012

Sedans: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria
56,200 miles; $7,992
Westbrook, Maine  04092

Searching for a sedan was harder than it might have seemed: Maine, and New England overall, has lots of used crossovers and sport-utilities. Within 50 miles of our location, we found an older Ford Crown Victoria, the kind of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, full-size sedan that has all but vanished from new-car showrooms. The mileage is low for its year, and it's only been on the lot 19 days. If you can handle the low gas mileage (18 mpg combined, according to the EPA), its 4.6-liter V-8 and four-speed automatic transmission should give you smooth, quiet, soft-riding travel for years to come. --John Voelcker  (See more used Ford Crown Victorias)

Minivans: 2006 Chrysler Town & Country Touring
77,763 miles; $8,900
Marion, Iowa  52302

Our last vehicle this week goes out as a search for Jim, who wants to find something under $10,000 in a zip code near him. So we did an open search from The Car Connection's listings within 100 miles and came up with this 2006 Chrysler minivan, an excellent choice for safety-conscious drivers who need space and a few luxury features. We think these are the better-looking Chrysler minivans, too--and this Town & Country comes with a power tailgate and power sliding side doors, as well as the third-row seat. The miles are about average for the year, but the price is a little under the usual--and given our experience, this minivan may have another half-life left in it.
