What are the Safest Used Cars?
What are the Safest Used Cars?

While new cars get most of the attention when it comes to safety ratings, roughly 75% of consumers purchase used cars. For these consumers, information on vehicle safety is important as well. The Center for Auto Safety, in collaboration with Jack Gillis, publishes an annual car-buying guide called The Car Book. In the 2018 version, the guide includes ratings for vehicles released over the past five years.

The ratings are derived from 1,000 used car ratings. The guide includes data on crash tests, fuel economy, warranties, maintenance cost, insurance rates and more. Consumers can now access the guide online as well.
