New Car Maybe?

My car is slowly dieing. I can feel the transmission going and want to sell it before it goes completely and then won't be able to sell it. I currently own a 99' Honda CR-V with almost 140,000 miles. It has been an amazing car and could probably still run another 100,000 miles if I got the transmission looked at. Only problem is that it is not truly mine. It belongs to my Mom. She has given me the "okay" to sell it as she agrees that it will soon start having problems that will be more costly to fix than what the car is worth.
I have figured with the condition my car is in now, I can get about 5-6k for it, if not more. The car that I want is a 2013 Kia Soul. They run about 17k for a mid or 14k for low end basic. This car has gotten great reviews so far and is something I could easily afford the monthly payments on ($250 a month for 2 years) or lower if I choose to go with a different payment plan and I have enough to put a nice down payment on it as well.
I am still going to shop around see what else I can afford that is new. I don't want to buy used, I am to paranoid and the fact I know nothing about cars....well....I would just get screwed over.
