This means you could sell the vehicle in a few years, and not lose that much, as long as you maintain it, and keep it in decent shape.

Shown below are our picks for the top 5 vehicles in this price range. The selections are based on a combination of dependability, fuel economy, and value. Prices for the vehicles are based on Kelley Blue Book data.
