I need an opinion on what car to buy?

i am looking to buy a new car for college. i want to spend about $6,000. there is a 2000 VW Jetta 2.0L, a 2003 Mustang V6, and a 2002 Mustang V6, and a 2003 Mazda6 for that price. they all have about 100,000 miles. They are all 5-spd manuals. the jetta is much more luxurious on the inside (leather heated seats, sunroof, etc.). and i live in montana just fyi (one over the other may get through snow better). All are in good condition on the outside. just trying to get a few opinions. thanks!

the mazda is the best choice

more reliable than a VW, and easier to drive in the snow

the VWs parts and service are very expensive

I love mustangs but in this case the mazda is more practical

I would go for the Mazda 6....according to the consumer reports Jetta is very safe, but unreliable. You will either need to know how to diy repairs, or spend $$$. Mustangs are fun, but not very well rated. Mazdas are pretty safe, and pretty reliable all around. Since you are a college student....I would say the less headaches the better!

Rear wheel drive vehicles (Mustang) don't do as well in snow compared to front wheel drive. Jettas are fun but have low reliability according to Consumer Reports. My pick is Mazda, they handle well and are fun to drive.

Compare vehicle condition and maintenance. Older vehicles may need new brakes, tires, battery, timing belt (if it has one).
