Could lease something for around that price probably, but it depends how far you drive.

That sucks mate, I hate it when your car breaks down, I've broke down 3-4 times with various cars, one was at a supermarket and I had just loaded the boot full of shopping and the blasted thing wouldn't start, starter motor packed up
