Our vehicles are a reflection of our lives, our monetary means, and at times even our favorite color. Consider the ubiquitous mini-van driven by parents of school-aged children, or the sleek luxury sedan operated by business professionals. Even when the driver of the vehicle is never clearly seen, we make assumptions about the life of the person behind the wheel.

These automatic assumptions may cause some buyers to shy away from purchasing a used car. Excellent used vehicles are not hard to find. But if a c
