2004 Subaru Outback used carEnlarge Photo
106,000 miles; $9,988
This Outback speaks to us. With all-wheel drive it has you covered whether you're heading to the mountain for a ski run, or over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house. This Outback is powered by Subaru's 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine. The ad states it has a clean Carfax report and drives perfectly. It's loaded with options such as alloy wheels, sunroof, leather, and power seats. Subaru Outbacks are known to be reliable, and this particular car has been on the market for 157 days already. It's already had three price drops, so negotiations may go your way. [See more used Subaru Outbacks]
2003 Ford Mustang used carEnlarge Photo
53,389 miles; $8,988
It may be winter, but it's still nearly 50 degrees in Florida. Seems like the perfect time to buy a muscle car, and the Ford Mustang's a perennial favorite. This particular Mustang features a V-6 engine, but enthusiasts will appreciate the five-speed manual transmission. With only 53,000 miles, this pony has a lot of life left in it. The ad mentions how it's a racy ride, but not that sophisticated. But hey, that's part of the charm. [See more used Ford Mustangs]
1999 Chevrolet Silverado used carEnlarge Photo
172,014 miles; $7,595
If you need a pickup truck to get you and the crew to the job site, but your significant other doesn't want it to be so junked out that you can't drive it to dinner, then this might be your next truck. The ad claims it is super clean and runs great. It all power locks, windows, and mirrors. The extended cab allows you to carry your crew, and the towing package will give you the ability to tow a Bobcat. It's only been on the market for six days, so negotiating power may be slim, but the truck looks pretty clean for not a ton of money. [See more used Chevrolet Silverados]
2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee used carEnlarge Photo
94,188 miles; $9,995
It's winter and that means sometimes you just need a vehicle capable of getting you through the snow. One of our favorite SUVs is the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and this particular used Grand Cherokee is a Laredo model. With a price under $10,000, and working four-wheel drive, it might make the perfect winter vehicle. While the V-6 engine in this Grand Cherokee limits your towing ability, it'll be easier on your wallet at the fuel pump. It's been on the market for 59 days already, and it's had a price drop of $5,000. [See more used Jeep Grand Cherokees]
2002 Toyota Camry used carEnlarge Photo
119,291 miles; $7,580
The ad for this particular car leaves a lot to be desired, as in the seller didn't put any description of the car in the ad at all. But we know it has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. With less than 120,000 miles on the odometer, we'd say this Camry is likely ready to give its next owner many more trouble-free miles. Camrys are known to be very reliable, and they aren't terribly expensive to repair when they do break. This Camry features power windows, locks, and cruise control. You'll be able to bump out the tunes with a CD player, and there's even a cassette deck. It's been on the market for 42 days, but at this price who knows long it'll last.

As always, we highly recommend you have a trusted mechanic perform a pre-purchase inspection on any used vehicle before you write a check. It's also a good idea to ask the dealership for the Carfax report.
