Six of the Most Reliable Used Cars to Buy in 2021

Buying used is a smart way to save money when purchasing a vehicle, and it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort, safety, style, or performance. Victory Used Cars maintains an inventory of quality pre-owned vehicles that have been carefully inspected and are ready to provide you with the reliable performance you expect. 

Of course, some used cars are better than others, so to help you start your search, the team at Victory Used Cars has put together some of our top picks for reliable used cars.

2018 Chevrolet Cruze

Impressive mileage of up to 31 in the city and 47 on the highway make this car a frugal commuter’s dream. The car also scored 4.5 out of 5 for reliability from J.D. Power and 5 out of 5 for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Is there a teen driver in your home? You can set speed limits and volume control before handing over the keys. 

2014 Hyundai Sonata

The critics love the 2014 Sonata and gave it a 9.1 out of 10 overall. The car ranks high for total cost of ownership (9.2 out of 10), and J.D. Power gave it 4 out of 5 for reliability. The Sonata got a refresh in 2014, and the comfortable seats, plenty of headroom, and upgraded safety features, such as a rearview camera, make it easy to see why it’s a smart choice. 

2016 Ford Fusion

Safety, thoughtful appointments, and great gas mileage are what helped land this little powerhouse of a midsize sedan on our list of great choices among pre-owned cars. Some of the features drivers love include a rearview camera, MyKey that lets you set speed limits and volume controls, park assist, lane keep assist, and forward collision alert. 

2019 Nissan Sentra

Lots of storage and a roomy cabin offer more space than you might expect from a Sentra. The car started life in the ‘80’s as a subcompact vehicle, but now in its 7th major revision, it feels more like a mid-size, yet it is still a very affordable choice. The 2019 Sentra came loaded with advanced safety features, including a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and more. 

2015 Dodge Journey

This midsize SUV gives you the room you need at a price you’ll appreciate. It earned 4 out of 5 stars for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and a rearview camera and rear parking sensors are available. Seating for 7 and a total of 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space (with the back seats folded down) make this an excellent pick when you need a used vehicle with extra space. 

2017 Kia Forte

The update for the 2017 Kia Forte included Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a more stylish interior, and advanced safety features. It earned 4 out of 5 for reliability from J.D. Power and was an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Available safety features included a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, adaptive headlights, and rear-cross traffic alert.
