10 Dependable Cars Under $4,000

There are times when you just need a reliable car on the cheap, and you don't care what brand it is as long as it can get you from point A to B without breaking down constantly.

If you're in this situation, take a look at Jalopnik's article from this past week, in which they asked readers to rank the top 10 most dependable cars under $4,000.

The number one pick was the 2004 Ford Crown Victoria. Others on the list include vehicles as far back as 1983 (I don't particularly agree that a car from the 80s will still be very dependable). Some of the later model vehicles such as the 2003 Toyota Corolla, and 2003 Pontiac Vibe may be better choices. See the full ranking below.

12004 Ford Crown Victoria
22003 Pontiac Vibe
