Car about to break

Full time student who needs a car as my current one is about to pack in so I need to upgrade to something more efficient and less costly.

I'm a student who needs a car to travel to and from university and my current car has started to break down and is getting to a point where I need a new one that I can rely on. 

I'm hoping that people will shar just a little bit of money to get me on my way to a newer car that will be more efficient and help me with my daily life.
