Vincentric Helps Drive Kiplinger Best New Car Results

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan – November 10, 2005 –
Vincentric, a leading automotive data compilation and analysis firm, announced today that it was selected by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine to supply automotive cost-of-ownership data to support the December, 2005 Best New Cars issue.

The issue contains Kiplinger’s 55th annual automotive buyer’s guide, designed to allow readers to pick the right vehicle at the right price.
