This week we sifted through thousands of listings to find you these deals. From a family sedan and SUV, to a convertible and pickup truck, there's something for everyone.

2007 Ford Fusion

73,996 miles; $10,895

Newton, North Carolina

This 2007 Ford Fusion has only been on the market for nine days, but it's priced to move. With less than 74,000 miles on its V-6 engine, it's a clean looking used car. As far as family sedans go, the Fusion isn't quite as bland as some of the competition. It features a nice design with a touch of European flair. This SEL mid-trim model features power locks, doors, and mirros, leather wrapped steering wheel, along with some aftermarket alloy wheels. Negotiate the price down to an even $10,000 and walk out of the dealership knowing you bought a nice car at a fair price. [See more used Ford Fusions]

2004 Volkswagen New Beetle

51,160 miles; $9,695

Marion, Iowa

If you're looking to feel the wind in your hair this summer, then this 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle might be the car for you. It's fun, chic, and features a retro style that is sure to be pleasing to the eyes for many years to come. This one is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine connected to an automatic transmission. What caught our eye is the low mileage--less than 52,000 miles. This might be the bug that Grandma drove to church on Sunday. [See more used Volkswagen New Beetles]

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71

109,697 miles; $10,413

Pittsfield, Massachusetts

The Tahoe has a history of being a reliable family hauler, and this particular 2003 model looks clean. We like the Z71 package with the upgraded suspension and front fascia, and it features the Driver Convenience Package with power adjustable pedals, steering-wheel-mounted controls, HomeLink, and other power features. The interior has leather seats and the green paint looks shiny. Over favorite part of the ad is the 0-60 mph claim of about the same time it'll take you to catch your breath.

The Mazda 3 is a great compact sedan for those seeking both fuel-efficiency and that fun-to-drive factor. This 2006 Mazda 3 has less than 70,000 miles on it, and it's powered by a four-cylinder engine. Enthusiasts will enjoy the manual transmission, and it has a rear decklid spoiler. It's been on the market for nearly half a month, and we'd be you can negotiate on the price a little. [See more used Mazda 3s]

2007 Ford Ranger used car

2007 Ford Ranger

79,098 miles; $9,995

Anaheim, California

If you need a pickup truck but don't want something that's large and hard to park, then the Ford Ranger would be a good choice for you. This 2007 Ranger is powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 engine and has an automatic transmission. It has alloy wheels and color matched mirrors and bumpers. It comes with a toolbox mounted in the bed, and tie-down hooks to secure cargo in the bed. It's been on sale for about 20 days, so negotiations may go your way when it comes time to talk pricing.

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.
