Make a long story short: Got hit, ins totaled car, giving me cash 3800

Now I'm fully aware that I cant get a real nice car for 3800. I just refuse to ever have another car payment until I have a lot more money saved. So I've been looking at some cars for sale but at that price Im only gonna get high milage/older cars. I need somethin LOW MAINTENANCE that will last me another year, year and a half/30-50k miles. By then ill have money to get somethin much nicer.

Im single, grindin, so i dont need anything fancy, at the same time i refuse to ride around in one of those multi colored, geo prism joints
Gotta look somewhat respectable

I did some lookin around online but I figured I might as well use all the resources I got, so yall got any suggestions? Any of yall got whips that have lasted awhile, or heard of some? Any advice on buyin cheaper used cars?

99 honda accord. I got one for 5k two years ago.
Put 60k miles on it so far. Only maintenance I had to do was timing belt (other than brakes).
And I drive crazy, they'll last thru anything.
