Car crash part 2: recommended transport?

The assessment centre has determined that it is uneconomical to repair my car. (Over $5000 of repairs for a car with an "agreed market value" of $3500.)

So, now it's shopping time. If I could afford it, I'd put in extra and get a decent, more recent second-hand car. But I can't afford it.

Any suggestions?

I'll have a look at a local cheap car place today to see what is around. Another option is going without a car; Theresa suggested a Vespa, but the idea of not being able to carry people and things is a bit scary...
