Best go for a low end Toyota or Honda which tend to be more durable. These 2 brands are not the cheapest though. Never buy something like a VW or anything in their group (e.g. Skoda, Seat, or Audi) even if certain models are the same price as the Toyota because they breakdown super easily. High mileage + low income better not burn yourself with a VW group car.
I have heard of VW being terrible. Is that personal experience?

No, I went as far as to test drive a VW group product only (Skoda, cos I have low budget). But I spent many hours researching both local and overseas sources for reasons and frequency of their parts failures. In the end really didn't dare to buy it as chances are, there would be failures and it would not be financially prudent. Bought a similar priced jap car instead and still enjoying a peace of mind today.
