Might be worth checking out the lease options. I'm leasing a Smart ED for $124/mo with $250 down. A Smart's not the best freeway car but it's great around town. I've seen deals on Leafs for under $250/month.

So...if the insurance company winds up totaling the car, as we suspect they

It would need to be freeway-capable with a reliable won't strand-them 50-ish 
mile range in a Phoenix summer with modest air conditioning usage.

The biggest potential problem would be budget...they're on a fixed income. They 
have some, but not much, money they can supplement an insurance settlement 
with, and I can probably pitch in a few pennies. I'm hoping the used market is 
mature enough that there might be something worthwhile there.

Suggestions most appreciated.

Thanks,
