What was the cheapest car you have ever owned?

My first car was my cheapest. Honda Civic 1991 DX. Bought it in 1994 at AED23000, besides normal wear and tear like brakes and oil and filter change, just had to replace the fuel pump. This costed me AED 75 as I did it myself, just had to buy the part. After 4 years sold it at AED 15000 which I think was a fair deal.

You mean to say your Disco and Pathfinder both cost more than 23,000!

The cheapest ride i have owned till date is the truck i currently own - my dearly beloved Xterra which i picked up last year for about 25k. All purchases prior to that (pajero SWB 2002, Pajero LWB 2009, VW tiguan 2011) were more in comparison.

For some reasons I never liked Saab. Their styling puts me off. Almost means I went, had a look, drove it, but since this was going to be my first car and that too with my own money I hesitated in doing the deal which turned out to be good thing as I found a much better civic shortly afterwards

I bought the Disco for AED 7500. Had to change the engine for about AED 4500 and gear for AED 900 besides having to change the engine and gear mounts for about AED 250 a couple of times and replaced all the seals twice before giving up on all the leaks. Besides that had to change the fuel tank once and fuel pump. Overall over 5 years I had it I spent about AED 15 k and got back only AED 4500 when I sold it. So cost me over 10500 over a 5 year ownership. Compared to the Civic where I spent AED 23075 and sold for 15k so cost me AED 8075 over 5 years.

I bought the Pathy for AED 10k spent AED 4k recently for engine, gear is already a question mark now which should cost me another AED 2k and other bushing and stuff where I've spent over AED 8k including AC rebuild cost. So already way over AED 20k spent and haven't tried selling it yet. But I doubt I'll be able to sell it anywhere close to AED 20k to beat the Civic of the old.

It's a good thing I don't bog myself with stuff like that other wise I would have never moved up from a bicycle!
