DETROIT (WWJ) - Looking for a reliable late-model used car? Consumer Reports magazine’s advice: buy Japanese.

If a new car is not in your budget Consumer Reports says Japanese vehicles are the most trouble-free in each of nine categories, including best used small car, best used luxury car and best used pickup, WWJ Newsradio 950’s Paul Snider reports.

The magazine found 11 2008 models with the same or fewer problems than brand new models in the same class.

Honda and Toyota easily outpace older vehicles made by other manufacturers.

The best used small car is the Honda Fit; family car, Toyota Prius, luxury car, Acura RL, and the best used pickup, according to Consumer Reports, is the Honda Ridgeline.
