A guide to the best certified pre-owned vehicles

A guide to the best certified pre-owned vehiclesAfter securing a good used car loan, it is important to make the best of your new funds by using it on a well-preserved set of wheels. Consumers should look for a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle, which will have a warranty from the manufacturer ensuring its quality. MSN Autos recently published a list of the top CPOs to help those with an auto loan avoid buying a lemon.

The top honor went to the Honda Accord, which is one of the best-selling cars in the country. With it's spacious interior and light weight, drivers are able to maneuver the vehicle better and achieve an increased fuel economy.

The news source says that buyers can sit in the lap of luxury for thousands of dollars less than they would pay for a brand new BMW 3-series, as long as the mileage is between 6,000 and 60,000. Make sure to avoid optional accessories, as they can increase the bill very quickly.

In third place is the Toyota Camry, which is a mid-size sedan with the feel of a high-end vehicle. Because it is such a big seller, there is sure to be plenty to choose from on the used dealership's lot.

Other cars on the list include the Honda Civic, Chevy Impala and Toyota Corolla.
