Today's example, this blog posting from CR on "Best Used Cars Under $20,000"
Several CR staffers submit their choices, and all of them pick Honda or Toyota vehicles, except for two. There is 1/2 a vote for a Ford Fusion, and 1 vote for a VW.
Really guys? You have $20,000 to spend, which is plenty, and you don't even consider some of the better American used vehicles, such as the Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox/Saturn Vue, Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300?
Consider: you can get a late model used Malibu or Taurus for under $20,000 which has all the trimmings, including leather heated seats, automatic lights, back up sensors, automatic climate control, etc.
