Because of a solid reputation for quality, Toyota cars and trucks never go out of style. When families acquire a new one, the old one gets passed down to a younger family member, making Toyota used cars a hot commodity on the used car market. Now, Kelly Blue Book, the authority on new and used car values, puts the spotlight on two used Toyota models and one used Scion model that have retained better than average reliability and value for their age.
At a retail value of $6,125, the 2002 Toyota Corolla takes the third spot on the Blue Book list. This sedan falls into the eighth generation of the nameplate and was the first affordable compact sedan to offer the option of side airbags. The Corolla nameplate, now in its tenth generation, is the best-selling in automotive history and, considering its reliability, Ourisman is not at all surprised to find a decade-old model on this list.
Taking fifth place is the 2004 Scion xA. This hatchback, with a Blue Book retail value of $7,805, launched the Scion brand name as an economy car for the Millennium generation. Consumers continue to give the five-door great reviews, calling it fun to drive, comfortable and easy for hauling cargo. Eight years after its original release, it still gets a 4.5-star consumer rating at Edmunds.com.
Finally, in seventh place, and with a retail value of $5,925, is the 2002 Toyota Tundra standard cab pickup. Even after ten years, the Tundra delivers plenty of V8 durability and handles as smoothly as when it was first rolled off the line. There is no better bargain work truck for the home improvement hobbyist.
All of the retail values above were effective Dec. 2011. The actual and final price of each used vehicle is determined by vehicle trims, condition and other factors. If Ourisman Fairfax Toyota doesn't show one of the above models currently in stock, please contact the sales department and ask about a special search.
