    No one can beat Honda, Toyota, Lexus and Acura. Best cars made. Engines run for 300,000 miles. Even a 10 year old Lexus and Acura model is stylish. Buy them used... I drive a 10 year old Lexus ES330.. runs perfect. Insurance is just $40/month thru Insurance Panda. Gas is cheap too. Not much to repair either. Can't beat it!

    Odd the Honda Fit didn't manage to make it into the top ten.

    @John, As I look at the data, the Fit didn't quite make it into the top ten for a couple of subtle reasons: One of them is that its gas mileage (by the official EPA ratings) is a step below some of these other models.

    Bengt, thanks for your observation. However, I guess the interpretation of data is sometimes in the eye of the beholder (in this case, Vincentric).

    In the eye of ConsumerReports.org and the data on their website the Honda Fit Base came in with a 5-year ownership total cost of $25,500 ($26,750 for the Sport). Either beats the #1 Vincentric pick Nissan Versa at $27,405 ($28K per CR).

    The Honda Fit Base EPA mileage rating of 28 city, 35 hwy doesn’t seem to be a step below the Vincentric #10 rated Toyota Corolla S at 27 city, 34 hwy nor a step higher than the Vincentric’s calculated 5-year total cost of ownership for the Corolla S at $30,345.

    So it still seems a bit odd to me that the Honda Fit didn’t somehow make Vincentric’s top 10 list.
