Too many to pick from. Sedan, SUV, Crossover, wagon, then how old and miles, etc. I'd narrow it down to 2 or 3 models and then ask.


With a $6k used car, the car's maintenance history is more important than the make and model. Be sure to shop for something that has a clean Carfax record, and has received it's oil changes and wear items replaced on time.

If you have $6,000 to spend on a used car, you're going to have a lot of cars to choose from. From my experience, the best and most dependable car that has ever been on U.S. highways is the Honda Accord. Spend $5,000 on the car, then put the other thousand aside for oil changes, tires, brake jobs, and insurance.
