I’m browsing through the net and I happened to found this interesting topic.

Cars.com, one of the most trusted websites that offer automotive pricing and other information provide consumers some info about the vehicle models that are “wallet-friendly”. Why wallet friendly? Well, it is because these car models costs less than or bigger than $10,000.

Patrick Olsen, managing editor of Cars.com said:

“Whether it’s a thrifty ride for a college student, a grocery-getter for the family or something for the daily commute, lots of shoppers seem to want the same thing: a late-model, low-mileage car that’s reliable, safe and fuel-efficient.”

Top 10 best inexpensive used cars according to Cars.com.

2003 Mazda Prot̩g̩ ($8,500 Р$15,000)
