Default Reliable transportation wanted for about $1000

I need to find a reliable car for about a grand if anyone has anything decent they are looking to get rid of. It must be something a female can get in and drive without much worry.

Thanks,
Rob

I have to keep it as cheap as possible. My work is slow to non-existant and her Neon just ate a head gasket. I would just put a head gasket in it but I HATE working on Neons and it already leaks and burns oil and is on it's last leg.

I found a decent looking XJ for a grand but she drives from Utica to Flint for work and i'd like to get something better on gas than 18 mpg. Although the XJ would be a breeze to work on over a front wheel drive econobox.

pm hacksaw.

He has a car up north that needs a few things but is priced just right for you. I think it was a tempo or something like that.

Edit: Its a mercury sable and needs a tensioner pully and new rubbers i think.
