Jeep has many dependable new SUVs to offer, but only one stands out when you are searching for cars under $5000: the Grand Cherokee. It outshines the Liberty, Patriot, etc because of its durable engine and spacious interior. To get the best deal, you should look for a Grand Cherokee with the Limited trim. The Limited packages include a 4.7L V8 that is capable of 235 hp and also feature the Jeep Memory System for the driver seat, radio, and driver-side mirror.
The top trim level available in the eighth generation Accord sedan is the EX-L. This trim level gets you power front seats, leather upholstery, heated front seats, 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a 2.4L engine capable of 190 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, an upgraded sound system with satellite radio, a rearview camera, and an optional navigation system. The EX-L trim also had an option for a 3.5L V6 engine, giving drivers added power and driver seat memory settings.
We could build an entire list of Ford cars under $5000, but the best of them is arguably the Ford Fusion. The Fusion offers a more comfortable and quiet ride than the Fiesta or Focus and is roomier than a Ford Mustang. Under the hood, you will normally find a tough and efficient 2.3L four-cylinder engine capable of 29 mpg on the highway. You also get a stylish car that can easily seat five and is fairly inexpensive to insure.
The Toyota Camry and legendary reliability are synonymous. Toyota has always equipped its mid-size family offering with tough, durable engines that have been known to last well past 300,000 miles. Add to that the highest safety ratings possible and you have one of the best cars under $5000 imaginable. To find a Camry under $5000, you do not have to stretch to the 300,000 mile mark, either. You should be able to find Camry that is less than 12 model years old and has fewer than 130,000 miles on it for the $5000 mark we have set.
