Trying to make friends with your wallet? There's no reason to limit your car search to the 'used' section. Depending on which vehicle you invest in, it may save you big bucks year-over-year. Or, on the flip side, you may hold onto more cash initially, but find yourself handing it over for multiple repairs down the line.
But thanks to the good book - Kelley Blue Book, to be precise - prospective buyers don't need to do the heavy lifting to figure out which cars are solid long-term buys. After digging through their records, the team at AutoGuide.com recently compile a list of Top 10 Cheapest Cars to Own Over 5 Years: 2017. A short scroll through the web page rewards readers with a feature on the all-new Ford Fiesta ST, a sporty hatch that packs a lot of power into a compact frame.
"The Ford Fiesta ST is one hot hatch, offering a fun-to-drive experience in a compact package. It’s also the cheapest Sporty Compact Car to own according to Kelley Blue Book, with a 5-Year Cost to Own of $35,433," AutoGuide's article states. Rest assured that the low numbers don't translate to low quality, though - CarandDriver.com currently ranks the ST at a 4.5 out of possible 5 stars.
