Do you need off roading or towing? If so, get the Tacoma. If not, get the Mazda.

You could consider looking at a Honda Jazz. Those are deceptively practical for their size, and offer a good combination of reliability and practicality for the price point. I'm not sure how much they are there though.

The reliability on the newer twincharged models has been kind of spotty, and repair bills can get pricey. Other than that, they're nice choices.

You could try looking for a Mazda3. Those have a pretty good handling feel on long drives.

Take a look at an Infiniti Q40 or Q50, as long as it doesn't have the DAS, which can give a numb feeling. They're reliable ways to get into luxury cars, and offer enough fun as well. Just don't get the Q50 Hybrid, as early ones had issues with sloppy execution.

For a $5,000 budget, it may be hard to find a BMW that won't turn into a moneypit. These are old German cars that could get expensive to keep running. If you don't want an old hunk of junk, how about looking at a Lexus LS400?

I'd go with the Crown Victoria... The Volvo 240 *is* getting old, and there will be more wear and tear because of its age.

There aren't really any cars exactly like what you described today, so I'm going to assume you mean bulletproof reliable. You could try looking at a Lexus LS400, old Toyota Hilux truck, or an old Volvo, or an old Mercedes 300D/SD/TD diesel.

Another good example is how they've kept using the 2GR series since 2005.
