Hi Franz, thanks for reading it. Looking at the whole list meticulously I can see that the cheapest ones you can find among the winners are the Hyundai Sonata sedan (Most Reliable Midsize Car), the Ford Ranger (Most Reliable Midsize Pickup), the Ford Focus (Top Rated Compact Cars), the Kia Soul (Top Rated Compact Multi Purpose Vehicle), the Volvo XC70 (Top Rated Midsize Premium Crossover SUVs) and the Toyota Yaris and Hyundai Accent (Top Rated Sub Compact Cars). I'm pretty sure you can find any of these vehicles in used condition, year 2010, for sale under $10000. By the way, thanks for your forum signature buddy, I like it

I saw the whole list and I didn't see the Toyota Camry, this is weird, surely it is giving away its recognitions by pure kindness.
Just be baby.
