The Dodge Grand Caravan has been one of the most popular minivans in the North American market for nearly 25 years. It has always been equipped with tough engines and durable transmissions. While the Grand Caravan has never been on the cutting edge of styling, it has always been well-appointed and roomy enough for seven passengers and plenty of cargo. As far as cars under $5000 go, the Dodge Grand Caravan offers everything you could ask for.
Looking for cars under $5000 can be a nightmare. With the average price of a new car reaching $40,000, people are holding onto their cars longer. That means higher resale values as used car supplies dwindle. It also means that the quality of the cars under $5000 is not what it used to be.
The Acura MDX is proof that cars under $5000 can be high-quality luxury SUVs instead of base model economy cars. Choose to drop your five grand on an Acura MDX and you will get 3.5L V6 capable of 265 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque along with a 4,500 lb towing capacity. Additionally, you get seating for seven, 81.5 cubic feet of cargo space, and 4WD in some trim levels. The MDX always offers a modern-feeling design and outstanding interior refinements. You really can’t ask more from an SUV under $5000.
We are mentioning the fourth generation Honda CR-V because it is a redesign over the previous gen cars, but is still affordable enough to fit most budgets. The models equipped with the EX trim package offer a near perfect mix of comfort, tech, and price.
