BMW 3 Series

New Jersey is the only state where the BMW 3 Series can lay claim to being the most popular used car. Interestingly, this is the only vehicle from a luxury brand to make this list. Cars and trucks from mainstream automakers are much more common, so it comes as little surprise that the used car market is flooded with them, too.
