Top 10 Best Cars
Top Ten Best Rated Vehicles Used in the U.S.
Looking to buy a car? Here I discuss the 10 best cars (also known as the "top ten cars") based on gas mileage, safety, longevity, lemon reports and need for repairs.
Buying a new or used automobile can be a very frustrating experience. There are all types of vehicles on the market today... sedans, wagons, hatchbacks and SUVs, not to mention the new hybrids. And soon we'll have electric vehicles hitting the mainstream market.
Then there's size... subcompact, compact, midsize, and larger. So how do you choose the right car?
Much of your car-buying decision will be based on personal preference and family needs. However, you should also consider the criteria listed above before choosing which car you'll be using for the next several years.
When it comes to gas mileage, SUVs have traditionally been the worst kids on the block. Technology has improved somewhat over the last few years, but as a whole, sport utility vehicles are still far behind on gas mileage and reasonable repair costs. For that reason, SUVs are not included in this list.
Ten Best Cars
#1 Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius is a hybrid mid sized car produced in Japan since 1997. It was not until 2001 that the car became available worldwide, but it is still considered the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle. This car has hit the mark as one of the best on the market today based on consumer feedback, gas mileage and safety standards.
The Toyota Prius has stayed at the top of the consumer satisfaction surveys since it became widely available. For the most part, people love this vehicle.

When you talk to car owners, one name sticks out above all the rest when it comes to reliability—the Toyota Camry. In the United States, the Camry has been the best selling car for nine out of the last ten years. The only exception was 2001.
