Look i don't know whats available for $2000 but honestly i wouldn't be looking for a car with electrics etc for that money.
A Corolla 1982-83 are good cars the last of the rear drive corollas they keep on going and going and going.
For that sort of money i'd concentrate on car thats mechanically sound and cheap to repair don't worry about fancies.
On the other token i'd be worth your while to talk with your g/f to look at ways in perhaps getting a loan for a few grand more to open up your shopping window. You might be able to pickup an 1986 model corolla first unleaded model and it might have power steer and some electric goodies.
Not i reccomended a Corolla as you mentioned your g/f is not into big cars.
