Which multimeter should I get?

Yeah, I know, everyone should have a multimeter in their tool box. I have been asked numerous times how I get the work done I do with out one. Some how I fumble through and figure it out. Well, no more. Not only do I need a multimeter but I also have to learn how to use one. I would l like to get one I can use on my automotive stuff as well as work around the house. I cannot spend a crapton of money but I do understand that I get what I pay for. So can you all guide me in picking out a reasonably priced, good quality multimeter that I can learn how to use?

I use a fluke 87V. Theyre a very good multimeter and it does more than I need it to. They are pricey is the drawback. But I am just a diesel tech so thats how I justify having one.
