Buying a small, fuel efficient used car makes sense at any time, but in an uncertain economy and with gas prices still hovering in orbit, they make more sense now than in the past. You could spend many hours trying to track down a list of potential good deals, but no one wants to spend that kind of time looking online for a car, so we put together this list for you.

Buying a used caroffers you the benefit of missing the big hit on depreciation and most of the recalls have already been worked out and repaired. It also gives you a few years to see how they have performed according to past owners. Shop carefully and you can spend about ten grand on a car that you will drive for a decade.
