The best used cars available in 2022 for under $15,000

With the prices of used cars surging across the U.S. — buyers on average pay $29,460 for a used car in Seattle — it can be difficult to know whether you’re getting a good deal on your purchase.

After analyzing more than 12 million vehicles, researchers at iSeeCars — an online automotive search engine based in Massachusetts — compiled a list of the best used cars available to buyers in 2022.

To calculate their rankings, researchers looked at a vehicle’s average used price, its long-term reliability and its safety rating. They also looked at how well the vehicle retains its value over time.

Here are the best used cars available this year for under $15,000, according to iSeeCars.
