Looking for a used car? Smart decision: Buying a gently used vehicle is almost always a better value than purchasing something brand new.

But you need to do your homework before deciding on a make and model. Some used cars are a better deal than others, as a recent analysis from iSeeCars clearly shows.

The website ranked 10-year-old vehicles based on their average price per 1,000 miles of expected remaining lifespan to determine the best used cars for your money.

The following are the best bets if you plan to shop for a vehicle soon.

The Toyota Prius from this time period gets high safety ratings and has been praised for its comfortable ride. But you’ll hear a lot of road noise, and the interior materials fail to impress.
