I don't see anything coming into that price range until well after the vehicle is needed.

My son is 3, my daughter 6 months. If we have another in one year and the final one in a year and a half after that one, then that's a total of 4 kids in a minimum of 2.5 years from now. Even if a GL or R class diesel would fit our needs, I don't see either being offered for under 10k in 2.5 years (unless they were totaled and being sold as parts cars).
