Searching for certain makes and models of vehicles often sold for less than $1,000 can help make the search faster and easier. There are several types of vehicles that are routinely available for less than $1,000. As of 2015, these brands include many Kia models, the Hyundai Elantra, the Toyota Camry and many Honda models. Although these cars may be available for a cheap price, many of them are in good working condition.

The reason individuals may be able to buy these cars for less than $1,000 is that they usually have low prices when sold as new and often last for a very long time. For example, many Toyota Camry vehicles last for more than 20 years and can run for more than 200,000 miles. As a result, the used car market usually has many of these vehicles available with more than 100,000 miles. Despite having high mileage, these types of cars may still have many years of use ahead of them. The same is similar for the Hyundai Elantra as well as models made by Kia and Honda.
