For new cars ranking, 2009 Toyota Prius is rank as overall best-value new car in terms of fuel saving in general. 2009 is an economy crisis year, despite looking at the gasoline price history, gasoline or petrol price has gone up to more than USD 100 dollars per barrier lately. Therefore, a “fuel saving new car” is what people looking for, and a “fuel-saving used car” might be more people looking for. Some car finder even tries their luck with impounded cars or project cars. But buying a used car sometimes is more risks than buying new car especially for those who are dumb to cars, especially cars under 500 dollars. These cars usually are not fuel-efficient.

A reliable or best value used car has to be:

  • Cheap when buying.
  • Often reliability.
  • No big deal or nothing goes wrong with the car within a year after you bought it.
  • Fuel saving or fuel efficient.
  • It has the third hand or used car values when you want to sell it off.

Some automobile report shows that the 2000 Honda Insight is able to achieve 53 miles per gallon of gas, which would easily beat most of the car. In the future may be we can consider a Mini Electric Cars which will keep us from worrying about the gasoline price.
