Gone are the days when consumers had to choose between luxury OR reliability. Today’s best luxury cars are also some of the most reliable used cars, and buying an affordable luxury car doesn’t mean you’ll be in the shop for repairs every few months. Below are our top choices for the best used luxury cars on the market today.
BMW 3 series
The BMW 3 series has been at the top of its class in several categories over the last decade, but it has solidified itself as one of our best used luxury cars by earning above average rankings almost every year in reliability. Post year-2000 BMW 3 series models are now some of the most reliable used cars available. Specifically, we like model years 2007 & 2008 for their high marks.
Mercedes C Class
The Mercedes-Benz C Class is another top pick for best used luxury cars. Since 2011, the C Class has scored above average in reliability and dependability, according to J.D. Power; and the 2008 models scored nearly perfect. For drivers less concerned with performance, but looking for the best in ride and comfort, the C Class is our top affordable luxury car option.
Lexus has been dominant as one of the most reliable car manufacturers over the last several years. J.D. Power’s Vehicle Dependability Study has named Lexus its top brand three years in a row; and the margin of victory has been huge. The Lexus IS is one of the most popular used luxury cars and is the perfect blend of power, comfort and reliability. A low total cost of ownership helps make it one of our top five used luxury cars available today.
Since 2008, the Acura TL has scored exceptionally well on J.D. Power’s Vehicle Dependability Study and has been ranked ‘among the best’ four out of those seven years. With its bold exterior and ample power, the Acura TL is an affordable luxury car that transcends generations and typecasts. 2009-2014 models have scored near perfect marks in dependability rankings, which is why we consider them to be among the most reliable used cars on the luxury market.
BMW 5 series
Like the 3 Series, the BMW 5 Series has proven to be one of the best used luxury cars in terms of balancing comfort, performance and reliability. With an always-tasteful interior and the drivability you expect from BMW, the 5 Series has shown that it can also make a name for itself as one of the most reliable used luxury cars by scoring excellent marks since 2008. With plenty of options available in the $20k-$30k range, the 5 Series is an affordable luxury car that doesn’t have to mean sacrifice.
