Young family needs a reliable car

My son will be welcoming a baby into the world in August and needs a reliable car. Ideally, this car would be a safe and reliable one in which he can transport his family of three and their two dogs. A small station wagon, hatchback, or small SUV would be ideal. He is on a limited budget and can only afford up to $3,000 to spend on this wonderful ride. It would need to be automatic transmission, but it does not need to be pretty. Any leads you may have would be appreciated. We have tried local car dealers, but the cars in this price range leave a lot to be desired. Thanks for your consideration.
