Everyone knows that cars depreciate in value the second you drive them off the lot, but that’s great news if you’re in the market for a used car. If you pick the right vehicle, that used car can last you for years.

CarGuru.com has released its annual list of the best used cars you can buy for 2017.

“Most car shoppers are looking for quality and reliability in a used vehicle, as well as some assurance that the car they are buying is worth the investment,” said Matt Smith, Editor for CarGurus.com, in a press release.

The analysis looks at recent-year models of vehicles in seven different body-style categories, and takes into account the long-term value retention and driver satisfaction, based on consumer reviews.
