iSeeCars points out that used car prices are falling very slowly but remain at record high levels. However, the market for 10 year old vehicles has some great car offerings that cost significantly less than 1-5 year old cars and still have 80,000 or more miles of life remaining. According to a new study, some Toyota and Honda models have traveled more than 125,000 miles until catastrophic failures, which makes them a smart investment.
