do you think i can get something good at that price non-sedan.
You should be able to do quite well in that price range.
You are also running into one of the strangest phenomena in searching for cars. When you are not in a position to buy a car, you find sweet examples wherever you turn. And they are unusually cheap too.
Once you have money, and are ready to buy, suddenly there is nothing but junk available.
This is where you have to be patient, and not make too many compromises just to get a car under you. Take your time, work the sources every other day, and it will show up.
