I am building a site for a used car dealer, with 4 or 5 search queries , of model, make, milage, price etc.

php and mysql should do the trick. If you want to learn php, the place to start is http://www.php.net. There is a downloadable manual (must have!) that you can use while you learn. Looks like DreamHost offers mysql on all plans, and php is what you would use to query this.
