2005 Toyota Highlander
6-month value drop: $3,457
Est. private party value: $15,928
Mileage: 27 mpg Hwy, 22 mpg City

Last year, Toyota rolled out the newer, bigger Highlander. That's put additional pressure on the prices of used Highlanders, which don't offer the comfortable third-row legroom of the new ones.

Toyota's strong reputation for quality and fuel economy means that, even in this market, Highlander prices are holding up relatively well. But used models are still a real bargain.

You get a smooth, car-like ride and handling, excellent crash safety and outstanding fuel economy.

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 still usually be much higher.
