If you can perform some mechanical repairs yourself, they're good deals. If you have to pay a dealer to fix anything, they are not a good deal - maintenance and repair can eat you alive. In some cases, you can find a 90's SL500 convertible for under $5k, but the ABC suspension can rack up several grand in repair costs very easily. Even if you do all the work yourself, like I do, parts are Not Cheap.

If you want something reasonably solid, comfy, and fairly reliable in the $5k range, I'd look at a mid 2000's Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable with the 24v engine. Not very glamorous, but my Sable wagon has been terrific for reliability and comfort. Parts are fairly cheap, too.
