2007 Kia Sportage

Est. private party value: $13,287
Mileage: 28 mpg Hwy, 23 mpg City

Kia and its Korean sister-brand Hyundai have long suffered from poor resale value. If you own a Hyundai or Kia, that's bad. On the other hand, if you're shopping for a used vehicle, it's all the better.

Hyundai and Kia offer some outstanding, safe and fuel-efficient vehicles that you can buy cheap from the used vehicle lots at your local dealer.

The Sportage and the largely similar Hyundai Tucson are just two examples. Both are nice to drive while offering excellent fuel economy and crash safety.

Note: An earlier version of this story displayed "cash value" amounts that did not reflect what people would actually pay for the vehicles. We are now showing "person-to-person" transaction prices. Dealership asking prices will usually be much higher.
