Ranking the Least Expensive Cars to Maintain

When buying a car or truck, the salesperson doesn't want to talk about what it will cost to maintain and repair that vehicle over its lifetime. They don't want you to focus on those unpleasant, but inevitable costs. We, however, do want you to focus on them, as they are a major cost of owning a vehicle. It will determine over time whether your car is a great value, or a money pit on wheels.
