Sounds like your biggest problem will be narrowing your list to a limited number of models, and deciding what brand names you are willing to consider to narrow the field.
You can search for websites blogging complaints for each model you are considering to see how they rate with users, and you can also go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website at www.nhtsa.gov to see how many recalls there have been on a specific model and year.
Most dealers these days have websites with their listed prices for new and used cars that you can browse to get an idea of available listed prices.
I would also recommend that you check out the used car values (free) for models you might be interested in on www.edmunds.com and on Kelley Blue Book - www.kbb.com
Those 2 sources will give you a lot of negotiating power, because they list what the dealer pays the manufacturer on new cars, shows what people have been paying for each vehicle model and model year, and shows used valuations also. There are undoubtedly other such sources also - these are just the ones I have used and seem to be the best known.

We somehow stumbled upon these guys and wow...if you want a low mileage Honda, Toyota, or Subaru...go there!!
They took two of our complete junk cars and gave us 1300 for them...one didn't run and the other had a bad leak in the oil and power steering leak...
They take insurance totals and "revive" them...all low miles too!
We got a 2010 Honda Civic with 41000 miles on it for only 8700! They gave us a 3 year warranty along with it too!
I priced the same car at the dealerships and it was around 17,000!
So far anything we have found that we wanted "tweaked" they have done quickly ! I plan to get the rest of my cars from them!
