I have no clue how much this would cost...

Hmm... depending on the type of car and how many of the add-ons you want to put into it. 15k seems like the base line for smaller cars. 35k for SUV and newer mini vans.
The cost of buying a car is not as big as the cost of gas and maintenance. Both of them will ring you anywhere from 2k to 6k a year.
Second hand cars can be about 20% to 50% cheaper than the new ones. They run the risk of having more maintenance costs down the line so make sure you can get a very good warranty.
Overall, don't spend more than you have to for a car. Cars lose value the moment you buy them and in a very rapid rate. After a year or two, most cars will lose about 30-50% of their initial price. This doesn't count for the fact that newer and more energy efficient cars are released every year.
Land and house on the other hand... raise their prices over time.1

Used are probably around $4000+ depending on mileage, year, damage, stuff like that.1
