One shuold look at:
- Buyng price
- Period of owning car
- Mpg, and yearly milage avarge need
- Taxes
- servicecost per year
- valueloss over owner period/years

And from that calculate the real price per mile for the car, and then choose the cheapest. A cheap car like the Dacia will most likely take a big hit on the resaleprice, and thus be expencive per mile in value loss, and if it also travels fewer mpg, and cost more in tax, it can be a bad buy, even though its cheap to com by in the first place.

Often it's not the cheapest car in price, that are the cheapest car to drive during for instance a 5 or 8 year period.
