Using a diesel as a daily driver really is not a good use of money when your getting started, but good luck with the search.
It's hard to talk the young guy's out of diesel's nowadays. When I was younger it was fast cars, now the young kids want to "roll coal"
Can't say I blame them these modern diesels are amazing. My nephew bought a newer Duramax... not a pot to piss in or a thing to pull, but he had to have it. Problem is when they break...It hurts.
