You just found out that you are expecting another baby and you likely have many thoughts swirling around your mind – how will you afford another child, or how will you survive on little sleep, or how will your current vehicle accommodate yet another passenger? For most families, this is a milestone that sends them to their local dealership in the search of a preowned car to suit their growing needs.
But, what type of vehicle should you look out for? Will a four-door sedan suffice, or should you upgrade to a roomy SUV? That minivan you’ve been putting off – could now be the time to buy?
The options are endless – and our staff at Key West Ford understands the overwhelm.
That’s why we’re here to help you narrow down your choices so you can find a used vehicle for your family that’s not only affordable, but dependable. After all, you have a lot on your plate – the last thing you need to worry about is an expensive vehicle breakdown that leaves you stranded.
Without further ado, here are J.D. Power’s top 11 picks for the best used vehicles for families – specifically, 2010 model year cars, minivans and SUVs:
2010 Chevrolet Impala
As a full-size sedan, the Impala offers one of the largest interiors – perfect for a growing family.
2010 Ford Focus
Busy families on the go love the Focus for its high-tech features, like hands-free connectivity.
2010 Ford Fusion
Available in a number of options, including gas, hybrid and electric plug-in hybrid, there’s a Fusion to suit any type of family.
2010 Honda Odyssey
If you need room for more than your standard five passengers, the Odyssey is a smart and spacious choice.
2010 Kia Soul
The Soul is a small and inexpensive five-door multi-purpose vehicle equipped with one of the industry’s longest warranties – how’s that for peace of mind?
2010 Mazda 3
Available as both a sedan and hatchback, the Mazda 3 offers a variety of engine, transmission and trim level choices, including a performance-tuned Mazdaspeed variant.
2010 Scion xB
Equipped with seating for up to five, this five-door multi-purpose body style offers families loads of style and versatility.
2010 Toyota Avalon
For those wishing for some added class, this full-size sedan can be outfitted like a luxury vehicle.
2010 Toyota Prius
A hybrid vehicle, like this Prius, is a great option for families looking to reduce their carbon footprint, as well as monthly gas costs.
2010 Toyota RAV4
Families love the RAV4 for its ample cargo space, despite its compact crossover distinction.
2010 Toyota Venza
Available in with 4-cylinder or V6 engine, as well as front wheel or all-wheel drive, the Venza is an ideal choice for families in search of power, performance and great handling.
