A group of WheelsTV writers and analysts met with members of the New England Motor Press Association to discuss what used vehicle has been the best in 2011. Based on reliability, affordability, styling, and fuel economy, the group had declared the 2006-2009 model of the Ford Fusion as the winner of their award, the Pre-Owned Vehicle of the Year. A vehicle must be in service for at least two years and has had remarkable reliability and consumer satisfaction to qualify for the award.
WheelsTV tests many pre-owned vehicles in creating video reviews for consumers. The reviews help used car buyers choose the most dependable, affordable, safe, and comfortable vehicles to suit their interests. Reliability data, model year milestones, crash test ratings and recall information is all considered when choosing the winner of the Pre-Owned Vehicle of the Year.
