My previous vehicles were all reliable. This one isn't. But it's also a 12 year old european car with high miles that I got for half of blue book.

Meh, unless the engine or transmission had major issues, most of the other items in an old car are cheap and relatively easy to fix after you've had some mechanical experience. So even a car not known for reliability shouldn't be too much of a problem. I'm assuming you're getting a manual so that's a bit cheaper/easier if you have to fix it.

You can find some non-worked on Subaru Impreza 98-01 RS' for under 5k that's either NA or turbo depending on the car.

You can find an 02/03 WRX for 5k if you don't mind it being a little, ehh.

Dozens of old Subarus that are AWD for next to nothing.
