2001 Lincoln Navigator used carEnlarge Photo
137,700 miles; $7,777
Saint Peters, Missouri
Looking to tow a boat or trailer across the country? This Lincoln Navigator will do the trick while keeping you comfortable the entire way. It has four-wheel drive in case you happen to run into snow, and the DVD player will keep the kids happy. It's loaded with leather, heated seats, and rear air conditioning. It has a 5.4-liter V-8 engine and automatic transmission that's typically a pretty reliable combination. Be sure to have the air suspension checked as this can be a common issue with the Navigators.

2004 Nissan Frontier used carEnlarge Photo
116,000 miles; $9,999
Clifton Park, New York
While the description on this particular Frontier is non-existent, the price seems right. We can tell from the photos that it is a 4x4 with the off-road package. It comes with a tonneau cover for the bed, and it looks to be in good condition. It's powered by a V-6 engine and an automatic transmission. Overall the Frontier is known to be a reliable and durable pickup truck. It's been on the market for 60 days, so you might have some negotiating power. [See more used Nissan Frontiers]
2009 Pontiac Vibe GT used carEnlarge Photo
108.001 miles; $9,556
This Pontiac Vibe GT offers hatchback versatility with peace of mind, with a certified 72-month or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. It's fuel-efficient, thanks to the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. It has a premium Monsoon audio system and 18-inch alloy wheels. It's only been on the market for three days but it's already had a nearly $1,000 price drop. We'd recommend trying to negotiate a little on price. [See more used Pontiac Vibes]
2007 Subaru Impreza used carEnlarge Photo
77,665 miles; $8,888
Jersey City, New Jersey
Winter weather won't be a problem with this hatchback, as Subaru's legendary all-wheel drive will claw it's way through nearly everything you can throw at it. The five-door hatchback body style is very versatile, allowing you to haul all your knickknacks, and your wallet won't be hurting at the fuel pump as this four-cylinder engine is fuel-efficient. The listing says it is a one-owner car with a clean Carfax, which we feel is a big selling point. It's only been on the market for six days, so there might not be much wiggle room when it comes to price. [See more used Subaru Imprezas]
2006 Chrysler Sebring Convertible used carEnlarge Photo
83,042 miles; $6,998
Forest Lake, Minnesota
Spring is here, which means summer is just around the corner, and what better vehicle to cruise around the lakes of Minnesota than a convertible. This Chrysler Sebring has a V-6 engine with plenty of power, and an automatic transmission. The interior features leather seats, power locks, mirrors, and windows, along with keyless entry. The car's been on the market for 21 days, but summer is coming and people are about to be interested in getting convertibles. [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.
