Yea, usually anything with airbags and abs brakes is safe enough. Just look who you're buying from;

if it's a dealer just make sure the idiot lights; "BRAKE", "ABS", "SRS"; aren't always on or come on while you're driving; you'll be aight; battery, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and "blinking" check engine or Service Engine Soon lights are like a bomb timer, you can still drive your car it's just that it can safely stall or dangerously blow up...

if it's a private seller, you can carfax http://www.carfax.com to check accident reports or problems with some cars just look up the VIN under the windshield; though that costs a few dollars; or you just gotta trust your gut, you know.

For price, look up a the kelly blue book http://www.kbb.com, you can use that to make an offer or not get ripped off.

^ Uh you buy what you can realistically afford. In your case may I suggest a 1992 Crown Victoria. Which may or may not be running.
