Newnan, check out the top 10 back to school cars.

Now, I’ll be honest here, I had to do a little research on this one. To quote Bill Cosby, “when we were kids, we WALKED to school…uphill…BOTH WAYS!”

Of course, times have changed now and with school districts widening and kids headed off to college, they really do need some form of reliable transportation. So, what are the best vehicle choices for heading back to school? You can thank Kelly Blue Book for this list of both new and used vehicles…I’m partial to the Chevrolets, of course:

New:
5. 2011 Chevrolet Cruze
4. 2011 Fiat 500
3. 2012 Ford Focus
2. 2011 Honda Fit
1. 2012 Hyundai Accent

Used:
5. 2007 Nissan Sentra
4. 2007 Ford F-150
3. 2007 Kia Sedona
2. 2008 Chevrolet HHR
1. 2007 Suzuki SX4

Now, I can see most of the “new” cars being reasonable choices. It’s a couple of used cars in this list that are throwing me for a loop. Take the Kia Sedona for example. What teen or college bound kid in their right mind would want a mini-van? Great for hauling your buddies around in, but you know that you are going to be the first one those same buddies approach when they need help moving. Same thing goes for the Ford F-150. I hope you have a lot of time on your hands, because you will be the “go to guy” that has hauling capacity. I’m not even going to bring up the fuel efficiency on this thing.

Still, it’s hard to say no to any car at that age, which explains why our first cars are far from our dream rides. I’m curious: What was your first car? Feel free to sound off in the comments.
