Hi All,

I would like to buy an used car in PA within a budget of $ 8000. The car models which I have shortlisted are mentioned below. Could you please advise which model (and the corresponding year/ mileage) would be the best for me to buy such that I can get the best resale value ?

i) Honda Civic
ii) Nissan Altima
iii) Toyota Corolla
iv) Hyundai Elantra
v) Nissan Sentra
vi) Nissan Versa

    In my experience, I have found if you are interested in resale, it's hard to beat a Civic or Corolla.  People are always looking for clean examples of those for their kids.  Hyundai is improving, but I think their resale is the least of your choices, due to Hyundai doing lots of cheap lease deals.  Your mileage may vary, of course.

    Thanks a lot, thebean. Can you suggest which combination of mileage and year would I get within my budget so as to get the best resale value ?

    Which option is better in terms of resale value? A 2009 Altima 2.5S (96,763 Miles) worth $ 7000 or a 2009 Sentra 2.0 FE+ (84,085 Miles) worth $ 6750?
