This. We've always paid $500-750 for our car, and they've lasted 6+ years, plenty of driving/distance, with very few fixes, other than general maintenance.

It really comes down to knowing the car was taken care of before you got it, and continuing the care.

ETA: so yah, I wouldn't be discouraged, though it can take some time to find the right car.
