Properly tuned and cared for any bike including a huffy or free spirit can be reliable. However I would advise against spending $100 on this. It very likely only sold for $99.99 (use your best TV hukster voice when saying ninety nine ninety nine) new.
The seller may be willing to put new tape and tire on the bike but it also need brake cables and a most likely a good tune up. if you can work on bikes this may be a good started at $25 to 50 (if she gives you $40 worth of tape and tire) but I would stay away from it.
Where do you live? there are lots of guys here who fix up and resell bikes as hobby not just to realize a huge profit and I am sure they have a great bike for you. It might cost a few more shillings but it will be in tip top shape, and you'll both get make a new friend
