2003 Buick Park Avenue used car

2003 Buick Park Avenue Ultra

105,499 miles; $6,871

Meadville, Pennsylvania

You'll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable ride to Old Country Buffet than this 2003 Buick Park Avenue Ultra. Loaded with leather, automatic climate control, and heated seats, this is one classy ride. With just over 100,000 miles on the odometer, we'd say it has some life left in it. This model features a supercharged V-6 engine, so you'll get to the restaurant early enough that you won't miss the 5 pm special. It's been on the market for 171 days, so negotiations might go your way. [See more used Buick Park Avenues]

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic used car

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic

72,528 miles; $9,999

Grand Island, Nebraska

For just a tick under $10,000, we'd have a hard time passing up this Malibu Classic as a daily driver. With less than 75,000 miles on the odometer and a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that's rated at nearly 30 mpg on the highway, this might be the perfect first car for your teenager. It features side-curtain airbags, cruise control, along with power locks and windows. It may be a bit bland, but it'll get you where you need to go. [See more used Chevrolet Malibu Classics]

2006 Dodge Stratus used car

2006 Dodge Stratus SXT

23,000 miles; $10,950

Columbia Falls, Montana

This car is under $11,000 and has only 23,000 miles on it. Most cars have that mileage on them within two or three years. It was previously owned by the government, so maybe it has an awesome history behind it, or maybe an FBI agent merely used it to make donut runs. Either way, this ride probably has a lot of life left in it. It's been on the market for 80 days, but with the mileage being so low, we aren't sure how much lower you'll get the price.

2002 Nissan Frontier used car

2002 Nissan Frontier used car

2002 Nissan Frontier

87,450 miles; $7,991

Gainesville, Florida

Need a pickup truck but don't have a ton of cash? This 2002 Nissan Frontier might be the ticket. It has less than 90,000 miles and features a four-cylinder engine. So while towing may be on the light side, your fuel economy will be respectable. The listing doesn't mention whether this truck is two- or four-wheel drive, so make sure to ask the question. It also has aftermarket wind deflectors on the hood and windows, so that's a plus. It's already had one price drop, but it was only by $4. Being on the market for 73 days may give you some negotiating power. [See more used Nissan Frontiers]

2009 Honda Accord Coupe used car

2009 Honda Accord Coupe used car

2009 Honda Accord LX-S Coupe

93,780 miles; $10,844

Canandaigua, New York

This 2009 Honda Accord Coupe seems like a really good deal to us. It's a one-owner car with a fuel efficient four-cylinder engine featuring a 30 mpg highway rating. The Accord Coupe is known to be reliable, and this example features keyless entry, cruise control, aluminum wheels, and an iPod/MP3 input. The price has been dropped just over $3,500 since it was originally listed over 170 days ago. If you're looking for a safe, reliable, fuel efficient coupe, this may be the ticket.

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.
