2011 Models with Lowest Ownership Costs

July 28, 2011 has announced their 2011 True Cost to Own Awards, recognizing vehicles with the lowest overall cost of ownership.

In developing the list, they didn't just look at vehicles with the lowest costs for any particular month.

Instead, they found those vehicles that have consistently maintained the lowest ownership costs.

The resulting list represents vehicles with the lowest overall ownership cost in their respective segments.

No matter which car segment you're currently shopping, you should consider one of these winners and at least test drive one to see if you like it.

Your pocketbook will thank you.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
