Best Used Cars in Texas under $5000: Your Used Car Guide!
What is the Best Used Car?
That question will earn different answers from your uncle, mom, co-worker, or mechanic down the street. You may not have thought about it until a strange sound starts accompanying every engine start. Been there? How about a scraping sound when you turn? Or an unidentified light on the dash. New car or repair?
We all want our cars to simply work. And when something breaks, it might be minor, but it’s often frustrating. And if it’s major, then we start deciding and Googling “new car vs. used car” or “best used cars.”
Are you a used pickup kind of person? Maybe you’ve always wanted a sports car? The excitement of a new car, even used, can be palpable as well.
For under $5,000 there are great options for many makes and models.
Public Auto Auctions has seen a lot of cars roll through the lot. A used car worthy of your money should be:
- Reliable (you know parts don’t break all the time)
- Popularity - usually, more people owning that car year after year is a good sign
- Cost. A new or leased car ought to not break down as much. But a used car ought to save you money in the long run.
- Easy to maintain (custom parts or hard to come by might give you pause)

What Should You Expect From Used Cars Under $5,000?
For some of the best used cars, including Toyota, Honda, and Ford, expect, with regular oil changes, and safe driving, to hit mileages upwards of 200,000 or more.
Know that certain cars, like Mercedes, Audi, and BMW, are a lot more work to maintain. If one of those shows up at auction, it is usually older or has a problem.
It’s a good idea to have an inspection on a car before you buy. At Public Auto Auctions we often see customers bring along mechanics or have a list of specific items they know to check as they kick the tires.

Think about what your car will be used for most. What’s the terrain, how many times are you starting and stopping the engine. Are you an Uber driver or do you work from home? How much space do you need and how far are you driving every week. Do you prefer luxury or simple functionality?
Other suggestions for choosing a car that’s right for you.
