Default reliable vehicle for parents

With so many of you out there I am hoping someone will be able to help me out. I am looking for a reliable low cost car for my dad just so he can get back & forth to work. His van was stolen the night before new year's eve, definitely not the way you want to start out the new year. If anyone knows of any good deals out there, please pass the info on.

Thanks

well I know they dont have a lot of money so the cheaper the better. I know you get what you pay for too but he really just needs anything that will get him to work and home safely. Unfortunately, I dont think Bill wants to work on something either but if it would get them a car quick, I might have to make him :tonka:

Thanks for any help guys!

We have a 1998 Dodge Neon that we really need to get rid of. Not a bad car - Under 100k miles on it too

It has its problems but as far as we know nothing major

Has around 85k miles on it - Mostly highway miles from my sister driving to and from U of M Ann Arbor

If you guys want you're more than welcome to cruise over and check it out. It's all of a 3 minute drive

2000 and it's yours
