What is the absolute best, most reliable car I can get for about $3000?

So, my magnificent 1999 Corolla was rear-ended this past weekend, and they are calling it totaled. I am guessing that, if the insurance company is generous, they will give me about $2000 for the car (it had 180,000 miles on it and was not in the greatest condition cosmetically, although it was perfect mechanically). I have maybe about another $1000 to kick in towards buying another car, but that's it. Other 1999 Corollas are selling for more than that, plus I am expecting a baby and would like to get something with a touch more backseat room if possible. Any suggestions? This car will need to hold up another couple of years, until we're able to afford a car payment.
