As everyone is watching their wallets these days, car buyers are looking not just for a great vehicle, but one that doesn't break the bank. Auto Trader this week put together a list of what they consider the top 25 cars for under $25,000, based not just on MSRP but also the features they come with.

On the list are cars such as the 2013 Buick Encore, 2013 Dodge Dart, and 2013 Ford Fusion. As always, I recommend you use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to find the best deals on these vehicles in your local area.
