These are the Top Picks for Dependable Used SUVs

A budget of $10,000 doesn’t go nearly as far on the new car market as it used to, but you can still score quite a deal if you’re willing to shop used. We took a hard look at today’s used SUV listings to determine which models are the most reliable (based on the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study) and are available at or below the $10,000 mark. Keep in mind that used vehicle availability varies around the country, so this is no guarantee that you’ll find any of these vehicles near you at the average price we have calculated.

Each SUV in this slideshow is suitable for most buyers and offers top-notch reliability, so we turned to our overall scores to help determine each model’s position in the rankings. As we count down to the best overall choice for a reliable used SUV, we’ll call out the highlights and notable drawbacks of each model to help you figure out which one might be the best choice for you.
