Top 10 Least Expensive Vehicles for 2005


Are you desperate for a brand-new fully warranted vehicle that doesn't leak oil or smell like a previous owner's dog? These are the 10 cheapest new vehicles on the market today based on MSRP, including destination charges. Bear in mind that not all of these vehicles will be enjoyable to drive at the base level, and a pricier trim upgrade may be tempting. Since dealers tend to add at least a few options for their regular inventory, it may be hard to find stripped versions, or you may even have to special order the car to your specifications. Some models leave you more room to negotiate than others, so be sure to check out the True Market Value® for your region before going to the dealer.
