Consumer Reports recently compiled a list of the most searched-for new and used cars on the organization's website, and several Hondas were top picks in the used car category.
The Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V and Pilot were four of the top 10 most searched-for used cars. The CR-V was also a popular pick in the new car category, though the other three models did not rank among the top 10 most searched-for new cars. The Subaru Forester ranked highly in both new and used car lists, and the Ford Fusion was a popular choice for drivers seeking to buy a new car.
According to Consumer Reports, SUVs continued to be popular in both the new and used categories. Consumers also searched for many cars on the organization's "Top Picks of 2010" list, which lists several of the best cars for bad credit, divided into category and assessed on reliability, performance and safety measures.
Most manufacturers are reportedly expected to see double-digit sales increases in 2011. Drivers who would like to trade in their old vehicle for a new, reliable vehicle may want to fill out a car loan application.
