It’s a familiar scene — you graduate and to celebrate your folks reward you with a new set of wheels.

Automotive website Total Car Score has issued its list of the top 10 cars for college graduates.

“College grads are looking to make an investment in a car that is reliable and cost-conscious,” said Karl Brauer, editor-in-chief of Total Car Score. “We compiled a list of the top-rated cars that offer the best quality while being very affordable.”

This year Volkswagen comes out strong with three different models making the top 10. So, if you’re looking for value when shopping for Junior’s new ride, keep the VW in mind.

All of the vehicles on the list start under $25,000, with seven out of the 10 starting at under $17,000.
