One of Rick’s Cool Cars for Under $5000, the Volkswagen GTI

Whether you’re right out of college, replacing a car that’s given up the ghost, or adding a needed vehicle to your existing fleet, “Go with the flow” has never been your automotive mantra.

2016 Scion iM

One of the Scion iM’s strengths is its value equation. Despite its lengthy list of standard features (plus a few minor options), our manual-transmission test car came in at less than 20 grand.
