The Best Used Cars to Buy If You're a Doctor Who Makes House Calls

If you are a doctor who makes house calls, reliability is likely to be at the forefront of your mind when it comes to choosing a used car. You also expect a certain level of comfort.

We have evaluated a number of used cars and identified the following five as being best suited to doctors whose practice may from time to time include the need to make house calls. Our top picks are the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata, and Toyota Camry.

  • Ford Fusion: The Fusion is available in a range of hybrid power trains and four cylinder engines, and is available in a variety of trim levels. There are numerous options for technology, safety, and luxury. The Fusion also comes in all-wheel drive, making it the ideal choice for the busy doctor who may have to navigate difficult weather from time to time while on house calls.

  • Honda Accord: The accord is a very respectable, reliable vehicle with a range of efficient transmissions and engines. Many features are available as standard, and the Accord is also a very nice-looking car, especially in the Touring and Sport trim levels. It’s a good choice for any busy doctor.

  • Honda Civic: Since 2012, the Honda Civic has featured a bold new look. It’s stylish on the outside, and much more comfortable on the inside. The LX level includes communications equipment, so the doctor can safely remain in contact with his or her office. This popular compact is easy to park, and fun to drive.

  • Hyundai Sonata: When it comes to reliability, the Sonata really delivers. Purchased new, the Sonata comes with a 10 year or 100,000 mile warranty, and of course you know that the warranty is often a reflection of how long the car is expected to last without problems. Buying used, you may even end up benefiting from remaining warranty.

  • 2013 Toyota Camry: The Camry is a nice, stylish option for a doctor, and it’s heavy on a lot of features as as standard, including a touch-screen radio and rear cross-traffic alert. Add to that Toyota’s long-standing reputation for reliability, and you have one of the best vehicles for a doctor who makes house calls.

These five used cars are the best deal for any doctor.

Chevrolet Impala V6-3.6L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Lansdale, Pennsylvania
Shawn was prompt, professional, and delivered the promised service as expected. This was a used vehicle pre-purchase inspection. Shawn also had to drive to multiple locations to perform the inspection, as the address listed that I provided him with was not accurate, but he still made it to the correct location within his time window and completed the inspection.
Toyota Sequoia - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Akron, Pennsylvania
Shawn was very prompt in communicating with me and was good at helping me decide whether to purchase a used car. He help me avoid a car with a repaired rusted frame that could be a danger to my family's safety since we were planning on using the car to tow a travel trailer!

Luis was great. He showed up on time, acted professionally, and gave me confidence with a pre-purchase car inspection.
Acura RDX - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - South Hackensack, New Jersey
Luis did a thorough pre-purchase inspection for me, and found several major issues that made me pass on buying the car. Had I purchased the car, I almost certainly would have ended up paying thousands in repairs down the road. Thanks Luis!

Hyundai Elantra L4-2.0L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Englewood, Colorado
He did a pre-purchase inspection for me. He was knowledgeable and fast, and knew what he was looking for. I really appreciate all the pictures and documentation he took of the state of the car before purchase. He noted potential issues with the car that I wouldn't have been able to notice. Would recommend.
GMC Savana 1500 - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Golden, Colorado
I trust Robert. He gave me a list and we will take care of it the week of June 29. I will know then that my vehicle is ready for the winter and is safe to drive. I look forward to getting things ready for another winter of careful driving.
