    Cheapest Cars to Own




    There's more to an inexpensive car than an inexpensive price

    We can name plenty of vehicles that can be bought for a song but have running costs that will drive you to the poorhouse. When looking for inexpensive wheels, you have to consider repair costs, insurance costs, fuel costs, and resale value. Let's take a look at some vehicles that can be purchased and driven without breaking the bank.

    I'm somewhat surprised the Toyobaru twins did not make an appearance. They're significantly cheaper than a Miata while being about 90% as fun, or so I've read. I haven't read any horror stories about their reliability so I assume it's not too bad.
    Is it too much to ask to win the lottery so I can have one of each?! I mean really...

    I think that the twins have more problems than the media portrays : OUR BELOVED FRS/BRZ LISTS OF ISSUES / PROBLEMS HERE!! - Scion FR-S Forum | Subaru BRZ Forum | Toyota 86 GT 86 Forum | AS1 Forum - FT86CLUB

    I had previously heard about the 'chirping' noise at idle and have seen a few articles about the condensation in the tail lights, but I did not know about any of the others in the list.

    The only two issues I've heard of with our cars are some of the '12 Si's had oil consumption issues (specific VIN range) and also the 1st gear clutch noise. No idea about any miata issues, though my father-in-law has a NC Mx-5 but his isn't very stock anymore....haven't heard about anything happening with it.

    Hey, if you win the lotto would you mind sharing?!?!
