    Ya, 6k a year would have a awesome resale value. I was happy to find a 05 with 50k on it in 6 years. The only reason it had such low miles is it was owned by a police officer that had a car issued to him he drove home every day.

    Average annual mileage is around 10-12 k a year. I personally drive about 20k at least.

    Best of luch though OP, you'll have to do some digging but they exist.

    With that budeget you are looking at a first gen prerunner with 100k miles. You can probably find a 2001-2004 in that range.
