Used Cars: The Most Satisfying 5-Year-Old Hybrids
These reliable vehicles, with outstanding fuel economy and advanced safety systems, have satisfied owners for years
Hybrids have long served as a more fuel-efficient alternative to conventional gasoline cars, which means there are probably plenty of them on the market now as used cars. Their most attractive feature is outstanding fuel economy, but there are other facets to like as well, among them trouble-free ownership and the versatility that comes from not having to plug in.
Consumer Reports recommends getting the most fuel-efficient vehicle possible. As recent gas prices show, there are fluctuations in what you have to pay at the pump. These spikes make hybrids and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) attractive. And the smarter investment is buying a used hybrid.
