10 Most Valuable Used Cars In May 2011

Here is a perfect example of supply and demand driving prices. The used car loan market is going buck wild. The average price for a fuel efficient used car is up nearly 20% from a year ago. The reason is simple: there are few to be had.

The recent disasters in Japan have halted production of many popular models. While that production recently started again, there will not be any cars arrive in the U.S. for another month. Here are the top ten most valuable cars this month (and maybe a few more months to come):

  1. Toyota Prius 4D
  2. Mini Cooper 2D
  3. Toyota Camry Hybrid
  4. Ford Focus SE 4D
  5. Nissan Versa SL 4D
  6. Honda Civic Hybrid
  7. Nissan Sentra S 4D
  8. Mazda 3 iTouring
  9. Scion xB
  10. Honda Fit

The mpg each of these cars is able to achieve, coupled with a shortage of new cars makes it easy to see why they are so in demand.
