used cars under 5000

I’m a college student, so if you have any suggestions of cars that are good for college students let me know.

A: There are some good cars in this price range, but there are some really crappy ones also. Keep in mind that you don’t have to buy the first one you see, and that you should be able to get it checked out byu a mechanic before purchasing ($30-$60). Well worth the price.

Do you have cash? If not, you will not get a good car for this price range as the only sellers that will finance are in-house financing dealers. They attempt to sell their cars at a premium, and get a high financing rate to boot. Your $5000 car will end up costing what a decent $9000 car would have cost (after a few years considering maintenance/repairs, interest on the loan, and value of the car compared to the cost).

So my recommendation is if you have cash look for a Civic or Corolla from $3K-$5K. If you are financing, look for the same car but less than 10 years old and from $6Kto $9K.

Q: Help Finding Used Car Under 5000 Dollars.?
I am looking for a car under 5000 that would be good for a new driver. I don’t know much about cars and engines and all that so I need your help. I want a reliable car preferably sporty that can run in summer and winter(snowy conditions). It’ll probably just be used for travelling around the city. I also would like a car that I can improve or soup up as I get more money. So far all i’ve been hearing is the Honda Civic, any other suggestions?

A: I would call your local credit unions and car repossession companies. You will find some selection and be able to buy way below book, therefore get more car for your money. There are a lot of good deals out there. I often am able to buy for pennies on the dollar. I bought a 2006 Toyota Highlander in 2008 for just $6000. So, believe me, the deals are there.

Q: I get my licence soon and i want a convertible car under $5000 (a used car under bout 80000kms)?

A: The Honda Del Sol is a great car and very fun to drive. A convertible (hard top, with the top being stored in the trunk as with a cloth top it does not wear out) and you can find many on eBay and in local papers for sale typically. They are usually maintained very well by the owners because they were only made for 4 years and many can be found in great condition with low mileage. Also, since it is a Honda they retain there value and you can add lots of extras. Have fun and be safe in whatever you decide to get.

Q: how come I can get a loan to buy a house for over ($200k)but I cant get a loan to buy a used car under $5000?

A: Because while cars almost always go down (depreciate) in value, houses almost always go up (appreciate) in value.

When a bank loans you money, the only thing they have to guarantee that they will get it back is the title to what you borrowed against. If you pay the loan they get their money and then some, of course… but if you don;t, then they have to reposses and sell whatever you had and get their money back that way. With a car they will probably not be able to get the amount of the loan back, but with a house, chances are better…. therefor they will be more likely to loan against a house versus a car.

Q: Whats the best used car to buy for $5000 or under?
I’m looking to buy a used car or truck for under $5000, but I’m not sure what to get. I want something that doesn’t have a ton of miles on it and can last awhile. Everyone says that hondas are the best or VW but I really don’t have a clue. I’m looking for something with more space, mostly in the backseat because I have a son. Does anyone have an idea of what I should buy?

A: Any GM car with a 3.8 V-6 motor. They last well up into the 100,000 mile range without problems. And compared to foreign cars that are reliable such as Honda or Toyota, are cheaper on insurance and can be purchased with fairly low miles for around $5,000. You would have to go with an older import with over 100,000 miles to get in your price range A few good examples of reliable GM cars are Buick LeSabre, Chevy Impala, and the Pontiac Grand Prix.
