6 Good Used Hondas Under $5,000 for 2019

A $5,000 car budget goes farther now than it ever has before. You might not think there are a lot of good cars out there at this price point that you actually want to drive, but in 2019, there are plenty of Honda models from cars to SUVs to minivans that have a lot to offer. Here are six good used Hondas you can find on Autotrader for under $5,000 in 2019.

2003-2007 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord has always been a well-rounded midsize car and this generation is no different. Available as a coupe or a sedan, this Accord delivers on all fronts — features, safety, reliability, fuel efficiency and even performance, especially when equipped with the strong optional V6. The Accord can get pretty nice in the higher trims, which were a little pricey when they were new, but now make used Accords a secret luxury car bargain. Find a Honda Accord for sale

2006-2011 Honda Civic

2006-2011 Honda Civic

The Honda Civic that is currently in the sweet spot under the $5,000 mark is the eighth-generation model that ran from the mid-2000s through the early 2010s. Its stylish design is aging nicely in both its sedan and coupe variants. Its ride quality is surprisingly quiet and responsive for a compact car. Another surprise is available navigation, which was rare for compacts in this era. There’s also a frugal hybrid option that can also be found at this price point fairly easily. This generation of the Civic is a good example of why it’s a benchmark in compact cars. Find a Honda Civic for sale

2007-2008 Honda Fit

2007-2008 Honda Fit

The first-generation Honda Fit only ran for two model years in the U.S., but there are plenty of examples to be found on Autotrader at very affordable prices. The Fit has a ton of interior space despite being such a small car. It’s cleverly packaged to maximize space for both passengers and cargo making the Fit a surprisingly good family car. It also packs in a lot of standard safety features like ABS and side-curtain airbags. The efficient Honda fit is a small, but mighty hatchback. Find a Honda Fit for sale

2002-2006 Honda CR-V

2002-2006 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a great compact SUV that’s practical and flexible making it good for small families or just anyone who wants a small SUV. It has a peppy engine that’s good on gas and it has a cargo capacity of 72 cu ft., which is huge for this class. The CR-V benefited from a nice face-lift for the 2005 model year, giving it nicer wheels, a revised front and rear end, standard safety equipment including anti-lock brakes, traction control, vehicle stability assist and side-curtain airbags, a 5-speed automatic transmission rather than a 4-speed and an improved available all-wheel-drive system. Find a Honda CR-V for sale

2005-2010 Honda Odyssey

2005-2010 Honda Odyssey

They might not be cool, but let’s face it, minivans are the ultimate family transportation. One of the best used minivan bargains out there is the third-generation Honda Odyssey, which employed a new body structure specially designed to distribute energy away from the van’s occupants in the event of a collision. Adding further to the safety features of the Odyssey are standard side curtain airbags and electronic stability control, which were uncommon in the mid-2000s. On top of its safety perks, the Odyssey has tons of room for passengers and cargo, fold-flat third-row seats, and some nice available features like navigation and a back-seat DVD player. Find a Honda Odyssey for sale

2003-2008 Honda Pilot

2003-2008 Honda Pilot

Want a family hauler with three rows of seats, but won’t take the minivan plunge? The Honda Pilot is a great SUV alternative to the Odyssey. Its boxy shape makes it space efficient on the inside with seating for up to eight plus cargo space to boot. One of the nice things about the Pilot is its standard V6 engine, which is smooth and powerful and even good for towing. One advantage the Pilot has over the Odyssey is 4-wheel drive, which is standard on 2003-2005 models and optional after that. For a budget-friendly family vehicle that’s a little on the rugged side, the Pilot is worth a look if you’re shopping for used Hondas. Find a Honda Pilot for sale
