When recommending cars to other people, it’s easy to fall into a pattern and suggest the same old BMWs, Hondas, and Toyotas. The problem with those picks is they tend to carry higher prices due to their popularity. Sometimes the key to finding great values is to look for cars that others forget.
I’m lucky enough to have a job where I get paid to tell people what car to buy. Granted, people don’t always take my advice, but they do give me an opportunity to make my case. For pre-owned customers, I often end up suggesting something that wasn’t all that popular when new, but can be a great bargain on the used market.
