Default Any good used car research sites?

I'm trying to find a used car to buy and having trouble finding a good research website. I don't care who makes the car and I don't care exactly what year it is. Many of the sites I'm come across try to force you into new cars. Those sites that cover used cars either use a database of cars for sale in a zip code or they force you to pick a make and year before you can go any further. I've tried all the big sites and they don't fit what I'm looking for (edmunds, autotrader, kbb, cars, jdpower, cargurus, etc)

For instance, I'd like to enter these specifics:
Body type: wagon (many sites lump these into the same category as passenger vehicles) or SUV or Hatchback
Year range: 1998-2015
Safety ratings: 4-5 stars on or a "top safety pick" from the (or some other variable to show it had a high safety rating)
Fuel economy: 25+ highway
Average resale price from KBB: 0-10000

Hopefully, I would then have a complete list of makes and models to research more closely, regardless of whether any are for sale in my area or not.

What I want to do can be done manually, of course, but it takes a lot of time and even more if you change a variable slightly.

Thanks for any ideas.
