That is kind of like asking where the best place to eat is, it really depends on your area and what you have available to you, how large of city you live in, what city you live in and what vehicles are popular in your area, then you need to figure out what vehicle fits your needs, not just how many people can fit it in and how much cargo you can carry in it but how long do you want it to last, if you only drive 7,000 miles a year a vehicle that has issues with rust is going rust out before it wears out but if you drive 30,000 miles a year a vehicle with a less reliable drive train is going to give you issues first.

There are not lists exactly like you are looking for, however the EPA MPG web site lets you sort by age and gas mileage but they do not give you vehicle issues or used vehicle cost, Kelly Blue Book gives you costs and there are a number of good car review web sites to give you vehicle issues, trouble is, vehicles that have very few issues hold their value, so do cars that get good mileage.
