cheap/basic car under $2K (auto trans)

A friend is looking for a cheap but reliable (having realistic expectations for a cheap car) car for under $2K. After that we're not picky... Preferably one where all the functional things work (it'll start, has brakes, no foot-ball sized rust holes in the floor). Was considering an early 90's VW or Subie

Buyer is outside of Philly

Turns out she went on her own and got a 2001 Hyundai Elantra for $1600. Needed transmission work, but the buyer (a filling station with service dept) said they'd do that for the $400 leftover. We'll see how that works out.

Thanks for all the responses.
