    a low quality question yields low quality answers.

    get a honda civic for that price range. those things are indestructible.

    Honda Civic if you need a car with four seats... Mazda Miata for a sports car. Ford Ranger if you need a pickup.

    I have an 02 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It cost about 10k CDN. Do not buy one.

    My old (04) Buick was terrific. I drove it from 04 to 2011 and I only got rid of it because somebody totaled it while I was parked. I got off work, went to my car and saw it was totally smashed up. Luckily they left a note. Actually, they left a number of their grandfather. We phoned him up, explained what had happened and he said, "Tell me, was it a beater car?". It was worth substantially more than the 2.6k I got in the settlement, but in perfect shape, it would have been 6k.

    2000 was another good year. Unfortunately, until I got my 02 Jeep, I had never had a used car, so I can't really comment, except saying that Buicks ride well. My cousin has an older one and he drags it through all sorts of stuff.

    Get her a ~2002 SAAB 93 Convertible with service history. She will love you.

    I drove an 04 Saturn for a few years. It's a decent car if she's small (I'm 6'4" so it was a bit of an inconvience.). Get the 4-door not the suicide doors so you can actually fit 4 passengers in.

    After a few years (I bought it brand new) it just started having problems. Batteries, brakes, starter. If these things have been dealt with, it's a good choice.
