So which one's for you?
2002 Acura TL used carEnlarge Photo
99,114 miles; $8,995
If you want a mid-size luxury sedan with a reputation for reliability and not too much flash, you might find this 2002 Acura TL to fit the bill.It has just under 100,000 miles on it and it's powered by a 3.2-liter V-6 engine. We really like the Aegean Blue Pearl paint, and the car looks to be in great shape. It's loaded with heated leather seats, navigation, alloy wheels, and HID headlights. It's been on the market for just over 15 days, so we aren't sure how much you'll be able to negotiate when it comes to price. [See more used Acura TLs]
2006 Ford F-150 XLT used carEnlarge Photo
112,067 miles; $10,995
If you need a workhorse then this F-150 would fit the bill. It's a supercab model so while you may not want to shove friends in the back seat for a road trip, they'll fit just fine for running short trips around town. The cloth interior looks to be in good shape, and Ford's 4.6-liter V-8 engine is known to be reliable. For a basic truck for hauling stuff, this seems like a perfect fit to us. It's been on the market for about two months, so you might have some room to negotiate on the price. [See more used Ford F-150s]
2004 Honda Accord used carEnlarge Photo
114,119 miles; $9,994
Need a reliable family sedan? You might not find a better choice than a used Honda Accord, and this one looks to be in good condition. This 2004 Honda Accord features heated leather seats and alloy wheels along with power locks, mirrors, and windows. It has a V-6 engine and automatic transmission that's both easy on the wallet at the fuel pump and at the dealership typically. It's been on the market just over a month so there might be some room to haggle when it comes time to talk about pricing. [See more used Honda Accords]
2002 Lincoln Town Car used carEnlarge Photo
55,377 miles; $9,800
Fort Lauderdale. Florida
If you need a really large, comfy sedan, then this 2002 Lincoln Towncar is the vehicle for you. It has low miles and the ad states it has always been garaged. We also like how the ad calls this Town Car a modern American classic, and while we don't know about all that, it is known to be a reliable car. There are many of these Town Cars on the road with well over 200,000 miles on them. This one features a tan leather interior with a bench front seat. Need to seat six people? This car can do it.

2001 Ford Mustang GT used carEnlarge Photo
74,601 miles; $8,990
It's the first of June and summer's pretty much here, so why not enjoy it with a convertible? This 2001 Ford Mustang with its 4.6-liter V-8 engine and five-speed manual transmission is sure to put a grin on your face. The ad states this pony is bad to the bone with leather seats, low miles, a sports bar (what's a sports bar?), and black aftermarket wheels. While we can't confirm or deny the bad to the bone claim, we can say this Mustang would be a fun summer ride, and it's been on the market for over three months. Someone should walk into this dealership and make them an offer. [See more used Ford Mustangs]
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.
