No Cars Go

EMERGENCY! My car is about to go kablewy (as in any day now), and I have to commute 30 miles a day to work. I can't live without a car, and seeing as hubby and I just moved, we have no savings or nest egg to fall back on. We are looking for an affordable, fuel efficient, used car around $6000ish. IYHO: Who's the best used car dealer in town?

Before you suggest it, Craigslist is sadly not an option. We don't have the money in hand to shell out to a private party, we are going to have to finance (as loathsome as that sounds) and rely on the kablewy car as a trade in if possible. This is Seattle, and I work second shift in Snohomish county, so mass transit isn't an option (it would take 2 hrs, 5 buses, and almost $8 each way). I am disabled, so I am not riding a bike 30 miles in the rain either.
We had been looking at gas/electric hybrids at The Green Car Company
prior to this, but they don't seem to have any inventory at the moment.
Any one have any sellers they would recommend? Good experiences?
