Most responsible car buyers do thorough research of their potential car on the internet. There are several websites that dedicate themselves to providing the most current and correct information about every car available in the U.S. Chief among these sites is the Consumer Reports website which does a large amount of thorough research on the quality of each vehicle. For 2012, Consumer Reports put together a list of the most searched used cars on their website, indicating which cars peak the most interest in the U.S. There are 10 vehicles making the list of the most searched used cars, the Subaru Forester being the most popular in the Seattle area.
Other than the Forester, the list contains the used Honda Civic, used Honda Accord, used Honda CR-V, used Toyota Camry, used Toyota Highlander, used Toyota RAV4, used Acura MDX, used Honda Pilot and the used Ford Escape.
