Nice thing with a 5 speed is that no transmission problem is going to end up costing very much because you just spend $200 on a low mile transmission and swap it in, automatics wear out and die.
Same with engine issues, if worse comes to worse you buy a used engine.
if it doesn't drive straight because the body is twisted or the stearing is wore out then it can cost you because there are a lot of parts to replace and adjust.
