Smile Car under $5000 in the DC Metro area

Hi everyone,

I recently sold my RSTI, and I regret that decision for two reasons. First, I miss my car. Second, I am realizing that being without a car is really tough in light of how often I go out of town.

Therefore, I am looking for a car under $5000 that has been maintained and is in relatively good shape. Mileage isn't as much of a concern to me (I don't commute to work, but I take a few trips further south in Virginia a couple times a month where a rental car every time adds up), as long as the car has been maintained. My minimum criteria are:

1) manual transmission;
2) power windows and locks;
3) well-maintained;
4) as close to stock as possible.

Ideally, I'm looking for something with 4 doors and a sunroof. I really like the 01-04 Legacy GTs, 01-05 Civics, or a VW. I don't want an SUV or a truck.

If you or anyone you know might be looking to unload a decent, older car (but probably not earlier than a 2001), I'm interested!

buy that for an extra $1k if you can. Looks like a serious steal if it checks out.

I did see that, but I'm not looking for an auto. You know what, maybe I'll just inquire anyway.

I have been keeping an eye on your buddy Craig on craigslist, but I just haven't been seeing anything (and I am more willing to trust someone on here than on craigslist ).

Look up the Hexmods valve body mod to deal with the slushbox. Plus, if you actually pick that up for $6k and it's in good shape, you could sell it pretty much any 'ol time for a profit.

I've got a P71 Crown Vic, not a 5 speed but it's stout and under your budget.
