Drivers seeking a reliable vehicle for the daily commute have many outstanding options. At the Maguire Family of Dealerships, we're here to tell you about some of the best used cars for commuters which can get you to work in Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen.

It shouldn't be a job to find a car to get you to your job. Our sales team is here to guide you through the process, so you're able to get to work in Syracuse or Baldwinsville on time each and every day.

Chevy Cruze

The sporty Chevy Cruze knows you have places to go, and plenty on your to-do list. Yes, this is a great car to get you to and from work, but it's also a sporty ride for your weekend adventures. Most importantly, it's fuel-efficient, with the recent Cruze offering 28 MPG city/38 MPG highway.

The standard turbocharged engine under the hood can power your every drive, while the standard infotainment system includes a 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone capability.

Letting your son or daughter take the Cruze to work? Track their movements with Teen Driver Technology, and provide coaching for them based on the information you learn.

Ford Focus

While the Ford Focus is no longer in production, we do carry a number of Ford Focus models in our used car inventory. It's a great car for the commute thanks to its smooth ride, SYNC® technology, and generous cabin size.

The Focus comes with front-wheel drive standard and a 5-speed manual transmission which gives you the control over shifts. Some Focus models will come with the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic, which shifts smoothly.

When backing up, use the standard rearview camera to your advantage, too. You'll be able to see what's going on behind the Focus and make adjustments as needed.

Kia Forte

The Kia Forte consistently ranks as one of the most popular compact cars on our lot. That makes it a great choice for your daily commute. It has a spacious interior, large trunk, nice tech offerings, and the fuel economy numbers don't hurt its case, either.

The Forte has space for up to five people if you need a car to bring co-workers to lunch or happy hour. The 15.3-cu.-ft. trunk is spacious, while the split-folding rear seat gives you a bit of room when you need to make a run to the store on Saturday.

The 8-inch touchscreen comes with smartphone capability standard.

Toyota Corolla

The Corolla has long been one of the most reliable cars for commuters on the road. The sedan comes with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, which makes 132 horsepower. It's efficient, fast off the starting line, and is able to maintain performance even when the roads open up out on the highway.

Sedan models come standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, a suite of safety features including a pre-collision system, lane departure technology, automatic high beams, and more.

The standard 6.1-inch touchscreen is easy to use, and the 6-speaker audio system ensures all your favorite songs sound great.

We can't help you avoid traffic, but we can ensure that you're behind the wheel of a car you love driving. At Maguire Dealerships, we're focused on helping Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen drivers find a car ready for the daily drive to and from work.

We always hope there's no traffic to deal with in Syracuse and Baldwinsville. Even if there is, at least you'll have a car you love spending time in.
