5 Cars You Might As Well Buy New Instead of Used

Toyota Tacoma (TMC)
How little you'll save buying used: 16.5%

Again, used versions of this compact pickup truck sell for almost as much as new ones because of strong demand and tight supplies.

Lyman says used-car buyers snap up Tacomas partly because it's one of the only compact trucks on the market. As for supply, the model's durability -- coupled with a relatively small number of Tacomas coming off of leases right now -- means dealers have few used versions to sell.

And like other models on TrueCar's list, the Tacoma hasn't gotten a redesign in several years (eight, to be exact). So new versions have similar equipment and pricing to what used models do.

TrueCar found that 2013 Tacomas sell for $28,476 on average, only 16.5% more than the $23,782 you can expect to pay for the typical 2010 or 2011 version.
