2003 Lincoln Aviator used carEnlarge Photo
106,393 miles; $9,410
East Dubuque, Illinois
This Lincoln Aviator has V-8 power to tow your boat during the summer and four-wheel drive to get you through the snow in the winter. It features a leather interior and THX sound system. For those long road trips it has a built-in cooler, and there's also air ride suspension for a smooth ride. We like the bucket seats in the second row giving each passenger their own space.

2007 Mercury Grand Marquis used carEnlarge Photo
91,738 miles; $8,293
Deming, New Mexico
This 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis will get you to the early bird special at Old Country Buffet in comfort, though "in style" might be up for debate. It has a V-8 engine that's known to be reliable, and an automatic transmission. If you don't want to take the keys out of your pocket until you are in the car, there's a digital keypad on the door to make getting into the car easy. There's a four-speaker sound system with a CD player to pump out the jams while you cruise the mean streets of New Mexico. [See more used Mercury Grand Marquis]
2008 Buick Lucerne used carEnlarge Photo
108.059 miles; $8,956
If a Mercury Grand Marquis isn't your favorite way to drive to Old Country Buffet, then maybe this cherry 2008 Buick Lucerne is more your fancy. It features a V-6 engine and an automatic transmission. The air suspension will make you feel like you're riding on air the entire way to that early dinner special. This one features bucket seats for added comfort, and supposedly a navigation system, though we are guessing they mean OnStar. It's been on sale for 20 days and has already had nearly a $2,000 price drop. [See more used Buick Lucernes]
2008 Ford Taurus used carEnlarge Photo
84,000 miles; $9,995
Des Moines, IA.
If you are looking for a terrific road trip car, this 2008 Ford Taurus might do the trick. It has a massive trunk and comfortable interior. It has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is rated for over 25 mpg on the highway. It features leather seats, cruise control, and an auxiliary input to connect to your music player of choice. It's been on the market for over 60 days, so you may have some negotiating power when it comes time to talk price. [See more used Ford Tauruses]
2005 Chrysler Sebring Convertible used carEnlarge Photo
42,681 miles; $9,998
Spring is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than by cruising around in a convertible. This Sebring is finished in a nice inferno red with a black cloth top. The description on this car is pretty bare, so we would ask questions about how it's equipped, as under features it lists air ride suspension, which wasn't available on the Sebring. It's only been on the market for eight days, but that doesn't mean there isn't some wiggle room when it comes to the price. [See more used Chrysler Sebring Convertibles]
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.
