12 Cars You Can Buy for Under $1,000 Right Now in Kalamazoo
Good credit? Bad credit? No cash? No problem. We checked Craigslist and found a dozen vehicles for sale in Kalamazoo for under $1,000.
So, you might need a more-than-gently used car if you have a new driver. Maybe a college student in the family wants wheels on campus and the cash is tight. Over mileage on a lease? Park it and rack up the miles on one of these wrecks. Perhaps you've moved to Kalamazoo from a major metropolitan city where you didn't own a car and used public transportation so you need a ride. Now may be the time to pick up a cheap Winter car because they don't go down in price this time of the year like snowsuits.
We scoured Craigslist and a few junkers, clunkers, jeeps and jalopies priced at under $1,000. A cool grand could get you a new (to you) whip, buggy, hardtop, hatchback or heap. Take a look at what we found in Kalamazoo.
2000 Honda Accord $600
"Sadie" is getting on in years but this old girl needs a new home. She doesn't get around as well as she used to and needs some tlc.
2003 Hyundai $925
Labelled a "fixer-upper" this one doesn't run or drive.
2005 Ford 500 $800
Clean title. Runs and drives, but has a hole in the radiator. Seems like there's one more thing...
1994 Chevy Extended Cab $700
Needs a motor and transmission, so, it's basically a life-sized Matchbox car. Oh, and "husband took off some parts he wants."
1998 Chevy Cavalier $600
A 5-speed manual, this baby has the 2.2L engine. No extra charge for the super-amazing custom paint job.
Dodge Ram $1
I'd buy that for a dollar! Open the ad. He's asking for $1,500.
1994 Dodge Caravan $800
Only one owner but with a stereo that doesn't work, yeah, that's a "no" from me, dawg.
1998 Ford Escort $500
The ad says this one "runs great." Also "first one here with cash takes it away. Bring a trailer."
2005 Chevy Cobalt $500
Current owner "gave up trying to fix it, don't have the time."
1993 Chevy Caprice $500
At 163,000 "well maintained" miles, this may be the pick of the litter with a 305 v8.
2001 Alero $450
They don't make 'em like this anymore. It's an Oldsmobile.
2002-2007 Saturn Ion $20
OK< this one looks to be parts only but maybe you could make your own, just like that Johnny Cash song.
