When checking out a 2010 used Yukon Denali for sale you can’t help but notice the luxurious comfort that this full size SUV offers. This particular SUV has more to offer that a Chevy Tahoe but not as pretentious as the Cadillac Escalade. The Yukon Denali also provides spacious cabin room, with leather upholstery seats and wood trim throughout the interior. It also uses chrome alloy wheels that provide a smooth ride with it’s standard load level suspension. For such a big vehicle, it provides a lot of power and it’s fuel rating isn’t as bad as you might think, 16.8 miles per gallon for city driving and 20 miles per gallon for city driving.
When looking into the 2010 Yukon Denali as a used SUV to buy, i found an article from www.cargurus.com that talks about the YD in depth. The article talks about the various engines the Yukon Denali offers. They have added some serious power, starting with the base model having a 6.2 litre, V8 engine , which provides 403hp with 417 pounds per feet of torque. They also have a hybrid model to look at.
The Denali Hybrid, meanwhile, features the same V8 oomph in a 6.0-liter hybrid engine that’s managed by an electronically controlled four-speed hybrid transmission. Mated to a 120-kilowatt electric motor, the Hybrid puts out 332 hp and 367 lb-ft of torque, with regenerative braking assisting the big V8 in recharging the nickel-metal-hydride battery. Able to accelerate up to 25 mph for short distances on electric power alone, this eco-friendlier Jimmy, also equipped with variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation, will get a head-turning 21/22 with RWD and 20/20 with 4WD. Trailer towing capacity, however, drops to 5,900 pounds.
The CarGurus.com also talks about how well the GMC Yukon Denali rides and handles.
Though not as nimble as, say, a sports coupe, virtually all reviewers agree that the 2010 Yukon Denali offers a pleasant, well-balanced ride with some surprisingly sharp handling characteristics. However, the standard 20-inch tires on the Base and XL trims, with their comparatively short sidewalls, will not, according to most professional reviews, allow drivers to ignore most bumps and holes, nor does the standard load-leveling Autoride suspension offer much of an improvement to the overall driving experience, though it does dampen a bit of the traditional float notorious in the breed. The standard 22-inch tires on the Hybrid trims, furthermore, are noted as equally bump-challenged, but their added efficiency factor does contribute somewhat to overall fuel savings.
The Yukon Denali provides a tonne of safety features and was given 5 stars for both frontal and side crashes done to it by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
It dominates most traffic, but the sizeable 2010 Yukon Denali is still delivered with a plethora of standard safety features. In addition to four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, and electronic brakeforce distribution, additional standard safety items include dual front side-mounted airbags, front-, second-, and third-row head airbags, remote anti-theft alarm, daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, rear parking sensors, turn-signal-integrated mirrors, OnStar Crisis Assistance and post-collision notification, and a post-collision safety system. Additionally, a blind-spot warning system is available for Hybrid trims.
So if your looking into buying a used Yukon Denali for sale your getting a nice ride with many luxurious options you’d get from a more expensive ride like a Escalade or Lincoln. I like this SUV but the only thing i didn’t like was the 3 row seating, it doesn’t provide much room.

Mustang used cars for sale can vary in different prices depending on what model you can afford to buy. The 2010 Ford Mustang went through a major over haul so it could compete against the likes of the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro. The 2010 Mustang now offered a fast back coupe and a soft top convertible which is suppose to sit 4 people comfortably. In truth there is hardly in room for a person who is over 6 ft tall to sit in the back. The Ford Mustang is available in 4 models, V6, V6 premium, GT, GT Premium.
Marty Padgett (The Car Connection) gave the 2010 Mustang rave reviews in just about every possible category you can give it. The first thing that everyone wants to know about is the power that the Mustang offers. Marty suggests you’ll be quite surprised!
A 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 is the standard engine on the Mustang, but V-8 models now get a higher-output V-8 making 315 horsepower (same as the ’08 Bullitt edition). Based on our previous experience, the V-6 should provide adequate but unremarkable performance, while the new V-8′s throttle response is immediate and satisfying. Both engines can be had with five-speed manual or automatic transmission.
We put almost 200 miles on a 2010 Mustang GT outfitted with the manual gearbox and newly available 19-inch aluminum rims. Acceleration was immediate and ample, and the action of the five-speed’s linkage was smooth; each gear change delivered a satisfying mechanical “snick.” Based on past experience with Mustangs, we did not have high expectations for a smooth and quiet ride, but the 2010 Mustang benefits from new chassis bracing and a recalibrated suspension that yields a more refined ride and gives it more stick in corners.
Marty also talks about what you get with the various models you can choose from.
The 2010 Ford Mustang is offered in four basic configurations: V-6, V-6 Premium, GT, and GT Premium. Standard features include a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, air conditioning, a CD audio system that is MP3 compatible, split-folding rear seat, and power windows. Content builds from here up through the following trim levels: SE, Sport, and SEL. At the top is the GT Premium model with leather seats, power everything, SYNC, and aluminum wheels ranging from base 17-inch aluminum wheels to optional 19-inch rims on the GT. Given the Mustang’s performance edge, higher-performance axles are available, including a 3.55:1 ratio.
The Ford Mustang also has many safety features like ABS brakes, electronic stability control, traction control, tire pressure monitoring system, remote key less entry system and air bags. Here are some of the pros and cons that consumerguideauto.com has to say about the 2010 Stang.
Rear-corner visibility (convertible)
The only other thing i can mention when looking at Mustang used cars for sale is that the reliability score was given a 3/5 for reliability, not bad for an American icon muscle car. Hope this helps when looking at a used Mustangs for sale.

A 2007 Dodge Charger for sale is a large sedan that offers performance, style and a retro muscle car look. This car (believe it or not) is suited for family driving, but also provides the power your going to need to have a little fun on weekends with. The 2007 Dodge Charger RT was based on the 1968 Charger that was used in the popular t.v. series “The Dukes Of Hazard”. It was also given a “best buy” award from consumer guide in 2007 and the Chargers RT engine ( the 5.7 Liter HEMI V8) was named one of the top 10 engines to have that same year.
USnews.rankingsandreviews.com gave the 2007 Dodge Charger RT some great reviews for performance.
The Charger R/T comes with a 5.7-liter, 340-horsepower HEMI V8 engine, which makes 390 lb-ft of torque, and about which About.com writes, “I can’t say enough good things.” The HEMI, developed by Chrysler in 1951, uses a hemispherical combustion chamber and allows for increased power and better fuel economy. “With generous amounts of torque flowing to its rear wheels and Mercedes-derived chassis components,” says Edmunds, “the V8-powered Charger R/T provides serious fun for driving enthusiasts.” Automobile.com claims, “The 5.7-liter V8′s thunderous acceleration is quite bizarre, really.” Fuel economy for the V8 is an EPA estimated 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Road and Track notes, “The 5.7-liter powerplant enjoys 20-percent-better fuel economy, thanks to Chrysler’s Multi-Displacement System.”
The 2007 Charger lives up to the aggressive styling of the 1960′s original. While some don’t like the rear of the 2007 vehicle, Edmunds sums up the majority view with, “The styling is both clean and aggressive, its stance is beefy, and those looking for a sedan with serious attitude should like it.”
US News goes into more details on the Dodge Chargers safety ratings and was given an 8.3/10 for crash tests done to it.
Despite some reported problems with outward visibility, the 2007 Dodge Charger offers very good safety features for its class. In government crash tests, the Charger earns five stars out of five for frontal-impact protection and four stars out of five for the rear.
The only bad rating a 2007 Dodge Charger for sale got was for it’s reliability, it was given a score of 2/5. Other than it’s below par rating for reliability, the 2007 charger is a good buy that provides both family comfort and muscle car performance.

Used 2008 Corvettes for sale are still in demand because of the engineering marvel that was built into this beautiful sports cars. There is one thing you can say about the chevrolet Corvette and that is, it never gets dull. When looking at the 2008 Z51 you truly are getting one of the best North American made sports cars made that year. The reason why the corvette always gets great ratings year after year, is because of it’s speed, luxury, Lamborghini like performance and favorable price tag. The 2008 Corvette is available in either a coupe or convertible and also offers a more expensive model (the ZO6) which has 505 horsepower.
Overall score that was given by the usnews.rankingsandreviews.com‘s website (for the 2008 Z51) was a 9.3/10, not bad for an American sports car. The review goes into further details about it’s performance on the road.
Corvette Performance: 8.9 (Very Good)
Reviewers are amazed by how well the Corvette performs for its price and class. With a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of nearly four seconds, the Corvette’s performance gives even Ferraris and Aston Martins a run for their money. “What really astounds me is that a car priced at ‘only’ $56,000 (our test model) is recognized globally, just like the Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini,” writes the Boston Globe. “And having driven all of those cars in recent months, I can say that if speed and performance are your goals — but at least some monetary restraint is in order — this new Corvette is the car for you.” Critics even believe that this speed demon is suitable for daily commutes.
The article from “US News – ranking and reviews” goes into more detail on it’s “good rating” it gave the Corvette for it’s interior.
Corvette Interior: 7.6 (Good)
Compared to other luxury sports cars, the 2008 Corvette lacks interior refinement. In fact, the Boston Globe describes it as having “upgraded but less than stellar interior appointments.” Still, the Corvette is praised for having comfortable seats, nice fit and finish, a large cargo hold, and an impressive list of standard convenience features — especially for its price. Still, some critics find entering and exiting its cabin to be difficult.
In the article it also discuss the Chevrolet Corvettes exterior. Not much to talk about here, but this is what US news – reviews and rankings wrote about it.
Corvette Exterior: N/A
The Corvette’s silhouette is an American icon. Though redesigned in 2005, the sixth- generation Corvette looks similar to its predecessor. Forbes explains: “The present Corvette’s basic exterior styling is a refinement of, not a radical departure from, the previous generation. It is the first Corvette since 1962 to feature exposed, rather than flip-up,headlamps.
When looking at 2008 Corvettes for sale always remember your getting the best sports car ever made by a North American automotive company. The only downfall of having a car like this is having to pay large doe at the gas pumps.

When you think of luxury SUV’s, the Escalade is one that comes to mind right away. Not all people can afford a brand new luxury SUV, so we here at YPW try to give you a review on used vehicles such as the Cadillac Escalade 2009 that were about to talk about it. Will also show you what kind of savings there are in the States when it comes to buying a top SUV. The 2009 Cadillac Escalade got great reviews from “thecarconnection.com”. It scored a 8/10 – for exterior/interior, performance – 8/10, safety – 9/10, Quality – 9/10 and features – 8/10.
Marty Padgett (editorial director for thecarconnection.com) spent time driving this vehicle as well and had some things to say after test driving it for a while.
For 2009, the Escalade’s 6.2-liter, V-8 engine is capable of burning E85 fuel and features Magnetic Ride Control partnered with all 22-inch wheel/tire combinations. Both rear- and all-wheel drive are available. Although teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission and Active Fuel Management to help reduce fuel use during cruising or coasting, the Escalade still gets dismal fuel economy figures of 12 mpg city across the entire lineup and either 18 or 19 mpg highway, depending on the model. Real-world city driving can easily result in single-digit mileage numbers, as TheCarConnection.com editors have observed.
This vehicle even with a full load has tonnes of power. Marty goes further to discuss the interior and how much space the Cadillac Escalade provides.
The Escalade is virtually unbeatable for elbow and shoulder room because of its wide cabin. Seats are among the most ample and supportive of any vehicle. In both models, the second row is nearly as comfortable as the first, and in the ESV, the third row is quite roomy, though a bit difficult to access. Despite its high, truck-like driving position, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade is graced with an attractive instrument panel that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury sedan.
The review goes further into discussing the added options that come available to the 2009 Escalade. Most notable are an 8-inch navigation touch screen, cooled front seats and surround sound. When it comes to safety features, Marty goes into more details.
Head-curtain side airbags covering all three rows are standard on the 2009 Cadillac Escalade, as are front side airbags; the StabiliTrak stability control system includes rollover mitigation to help avoid situations that might lead to a rollover. On that note, the Escalade gets a low three-star rating for rollover likelihood from the federal government (largely for its high center of mass), but the Escalade has earned top five-star ratings in the tests for frontal and side crash protection.
Rear-seat comfort (3rd row)
Overall a used Cadillac Escalade 2009 SUV has had great reviews except for it gas mileage. Buying an American Escalade SUV from the States will cost you around $37,000 to $50,000 dollars.

A used BMW M6 2009 can be one fast racing machine! This is BMW’s top vehicle when it comes to performance and speed back in 2009. The M6 is a further extension to the 6 series but with a better exterior design, greater handling and a 500 horsepower, V10 engine thanks to it’s Formula One race team. The M6 comes both in a coupe and convertible and sits 4 people. The 2009 is in the same field as the Porsche 911 turbo, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Maserati GranTurismo S and the Jaguar XKR. A 2009 Bmw M6 will cost you around 70 to 80,000 bucks (for a used one) depending on the mileage.
The editioral staff at Kelly blue book did a great review on this vehicle from top to bottom. Will start with there opinion on the interior.
The well-appointed cabin in both 2009 BMW M6 variants has an appropriately premium look highlighted by yards of supple Merino leather, Alcantara, and Walnut or Olive Ash wood. Other differentiators include “M” logos in the headrests of their 14-way power/heated sport buckets and M-style red indicator needles for the gauges. Opting for the SMG automated transmission adds titanium-finished shifter paddles, a metallic visual effect used as an accent motif on all versions. While the M6′s rear buckettes are suitable for only the tiniest travelers, the Coupe’s trunk can hold 13.0 cubic-feet of cargo. That dips to 11.0 cubic-feet in the Convertible with the top up and closer to nine with it dropped.
The exterior i feel sets this car apart from some of it’s closest competitors. BMW gave this sports car a more hawkish look to it than it’s 6 series cousin and the boys a KBB.com agree.
The aggressively styled bodywork of the regular 6 Series gets tastefully amped up for M6 duty by adding a more functional air dam, front fender gills, M-style mirrors, prominent rocker sills plus a unique decklid treatment. Rounding out the look is a lift-diminishing rear diffuser flanked by two pairs of chrome-tipped tailpipes. Both M6 models also share unique lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels that mount Z-rated 255/40 ultra-performance tires up front and 285/35 rubber in the rear. While the power soft top design on the M6 Convertible is unchanged from the regular 650i model, the M6 Coupe swaps the standard steel panel with moonroof for a lightweight carbon-fiber insert.
The Engine of the M6 is what makes this car tick. BMW is using there storied M unit to design and build this awesome motor. Below is what Kelly Blue Books staff has to say about whats under the hood.
One of the crown jewels of BMW’s storied M division, the M6′s 5.0-liter V10 toggles between 400 or 500 horsepower at the touch of a button and makes 383 pound-feet of peak torque. Free-revving and energetic to its lofty 8,250-rpm redline, this all-aluminum motivator features 10 individual throttle butterflies, variable timing on both intake and exhaust valves, a race-inspired wet/dry sump lubrication system and an electronic control package developed for BMW’s Formula One program. Backed by either the seven-speed automated/programmable Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG) or six-speed conventional manual transmission, it can send the Coupe streaking from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and gets the heavier Convertible to that benchmark in only 4.6 ticks. On the downside, sustained hard flogging will push its average fuel economy down into single-digit land.
500 horsepower @ 7750 rpm
383 lb.-ft. of torque @ 6100 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 11/17
The BMW M6 2009 is a great sports car new or used. They’re are expensive, but your getting BMW’s best vehicle with it’s best engine to go along with it.

A lot of Audi lovers may not know that the A3′s design comes from the old Volkswagen Rabbit but with much more style. When looking at used Audi cars for sale (like the 2009 A3) you will realize that in that year, the German auto manufacturer redesigned both the exterior and interior. Inside the A3 you have a much more sportier look than in previous years because they added aluminum to the air vents and the controls on the dashboard got a upgrade to look more modern. On the exterior they added mirrors with turn signals, they also added headlights with a curved trim and day time running lights.
Propelling the 2009 A3 is either a standard 200-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged direct-injection inline-four or an optional 3.2-liter, 250-hp V-6. The four-cylinder utilizes either a six-speed manual transmission or S-line automatic, which uses two clutches to speed up gear changes without involving an actual clutch pedal. It’s a brilliant innovation that is becoming more widely available from other brands. The bigger engine is offered with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system and the S-line gearbox; it’ll accelerate to 60 mph in about 5.9 seconds. Seventeen-inch wheels and tires are standard, with 18-inch rims optional.
With the Audi A3 being such a small car, it really isn’t for big people. It also has some whistles an bells you can add with options.
For a car of this size, rear seat accommodations are acceptable, allowing you to squeeze a pair of adults in there—provided the passengers in front don’t mind scooting forward an inch or two. The front standard leather buckets lack the side support needed in such a car and can cause backaches on longer journeys. The trunk is very large.
The 2009 Audi A3 comes with stability control, as well as front-seat side-impact and head-curtain airbags. Options include Bluetooth, a navigation system, Sirius Satellite Radio, and an iPod integration kit.
Here is what consumer guide automotive had to say about the pros and cons of the A3 from 2006 to 2011.
Quietness (except 3.2 w/ 18-inch tires)
Fuel economy (turbodiesel)
Ride (2.0 T Sport and 3.2)
All in all used Audi cars for sale like the A3, have gotten great reviews either new or used. If you want to have a luxury vehicle at a low price, then you should take a look at this vehicle.

When looking at a used Acura TSX 2011 you have an option of either buying there sedan or the wagon which they introduced that year (2011). Both the sedan and wagon models have a very attractive exterior and interior design. The interior includes high quality materials and easy to use controls that are spread out neatly throughout the dashboard. In a review from “thecarconnection.com” they gave the TSX a 8/10 for the exterior- interior, 8/10 for performance, 8/10 for quality, 8/10 for safety, 9/10 for features and 7/10 for fuel economy. Like most vehicles Acura designs and builds, they put so much effort into making not only a great new car, but a car that can last a long time as a used vehicle as well.
Marty Padget who reviewed the 2011 Acura TSX for “thecarconnection.com’s automotive website, suggests this vehicle was one of the best buys for 2011. He also mentions that Acura added more power to it’s engine and it’s good fuel economy.
Though the TSX’s V-6 adds some much-needed punch, the 201-hp four-cylinder is more than capable for a car of its size and weight. Even in the slightly heavier wagon, the TSX’s four delivers a swell balance of usable power and high fuel economy estimated at 22/30 mpg. The 280-hp six handles less well, and carries more weight on its nose, but fuel economy holds up at 19/28 mpg. Steering and ride quality are from the European camp, firm and taut, not cushy.
He also mentions in the article that the TSX is the smallest vehicle in the Acura line up but adequate for it size. The front seats are comfortable but anyone over 5ft-10 could be a bit of a squeeze in the back seats. He also talks about the crash test done to the TSX and safety equipment.
Good crash ratings mean you can drive with confidence in your family’s safety, but a standard backup camera would be a nice addition. It’s available as an option. Acura’s reticence to adopt some tech features means lane-departure warnings, parking sensors and even adaptive cruise control are either unavailable or bundled in expensive packages.
What i like most about this vehicle is what they offer for entertainment features.
It’s the same for other entertainment features, though the TSX does come relatively well equipped with a USB port, Bluetooth, XM, and leather seating with heated, powered front buckets. Despite the extensive standard feature set, the Technology Package is well worth the price, especially in light of the excellent upgraded audio system and 60GB hard drive and navigation system included in the price. A power tailgate is optional.
If you’re looking at a used Acura TSX 2011 to buy, make sure to get a history check done on the vehicle. As for this car as a used vehicle to buy, i would suggest you can’t go wrong. Time and time again consumer reports always give Acura used cars a great ratings.

Have you bought a 2011 Porsche Cayenne S hybrid? Are you looking at a used Porsche car for sale? If so you might want to take a look at some of the pros and cons of this hybrid SUV. The only thing i could see being the most serious of problems is there drivetrain. There seems to be a software glitch that the famous German automaker has yet to fix. The Cayenne S Hybrid is an expensive SUV so i thought I’d right about it if your someone who’s thinking of buying a used one.
I don’t even like old cars. I’d rather have a goddam horse. A horse is at least human, for God’s sake.
J. D. Salinger
Scott Evans a writer for MotorTrend.com writes about how his 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid got the updated software that was to fix what he says is a clunky drivetrain in heavy traffic.
And they’re not much to talk about, I’m afraid. The service, billed as “Re-programming Tiptronic, front-end electronics and high-voltage power electronics control units” and a companion update to the instrument cluster programming further refined power delivery in normal driving (something I never had a problem with) and even made the Cayenne feel a little quicker. As for low speeds and traffic jams, though, the update didn’t seem to do much. I’ve noticed the bucking less often, but it hasn’t diminished in severity as I’d hoped.
Even thou there are some issues with the drivetrain overall Scott goes on to suggest that this Porsche hybrid SUV has more good things going for it that bad ones. He talks about how good the Porsche transmission logic is, but then he’ll complain about how such an expensive car doesn’t have keyless entry. He also doesn’t like the left hand ignition but now has no issues with the paddles.
These are, of course, small gripes. Yes, they’re annoying, but none affect the driveability of the vehicle nor are they deal-breakers. Some can even be fixed with the proper application of dollars. The fact that these are the only things I have to complain about should tell you something about how good this car is overall.
A Porsche car for sale will not be cheap and especially if its a expensive one like the Cayenne S. I agree with Scott Evans (who knows better than most people since he owns one) that the 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid isn’t a bad SUV at all.
