Look up book values on KBB as a starting point. Through checkout of the car. Your favorite mechanic is also a good pair of eyes (and ears). Take it for a good test drive in all sorts of driving, including highway.

budget? That would help, are we talking $20,000 or $2000?

You could pick up a decent Saturn or Neon for that. Check for normal stuff, strange noises, check the oil, antifreeze, steering is tight, brakes work correct, doesn't pull to one side, check the tires for normal wear, etc.
