Top 10 Most Affordable Convertibles for 2003


Dying for the pleasure of top-down driving but constrained by a budget? We've compiled a list of the 10 cheapest convertibles (based on MSRP plus destination) — some are family-friendly four-seaters, while others are carefree roadsters, but all have a removable top so that the sun can warm your face and the summer breeze can ruffle your hair. Note that the first seven cars on this list have MSRPs under $30,000, and of course many of them can be purchased much closer to invoice (check the True Market Value® for your region before going to the dealer).
