Which Car Should I Get...?

I Have 7000 That I Saved Over The Past 4 Years. Along With The Sale Of My Passport I Have 11,000 Thousand To Spend.

I Need A New Car. To Get Me From College To Home (15-18 miles a day)

Ive Come Down To Between A Car Vs A Truck (4x4)

The Choices Are Ford Ranger Vs Toyota Tacoma, Ford F-150 Vs Silverado 1500, Dodge Charger Vs Mustang, And Honda Civic Vs Mitsubishi Eclipse.

I Do Al ot Of Traveling (especially in the winter & summer), And A lot Of Off Roading.

Which Car Should I Get...?

I think it comes down to how long do you plan to keep the car/truck you are about to purchase?

Depending on how long you plan to keep it, you need to look at it this way too, 'Foreign' vs 'Domestic'. Foreign cars, even if produced in the USA, get better resale value than others.

If you can see yourself driving a truck for the next 2-6+ years, then by all means get a truck. However, if you think you will get tired of a truck and may need more passenger room later down the road ... the possibilities are almost endless.

If I had to choose a truck, it would be the Toyota Tacoma or the Ford F-150. My boyfriend has a 94 4X4 'before' they became the 'Tacoma' and it hasn't given him a days trouble. My father had an F-150 and I loved driving it.

If I had to choose a car, the Honda Civic does not belong in the group with the others. Sorry, but it doesn't. I would choose the Charger or the Eclipse.

Good luck on your buy.

i would definitely cross the ranger off the list. the f-150 simply outsells the rest of those trucks and is the number 1 truck in the nation and one of ford's top models.

as for cars, i would recommend the charger, it's nice, fast however, its resale value is relatively bad.

the honda civic is probably your best choice as the eclipse has one of the worst reslae values according to yahoo autos.

If you do a lot of off road racing and traveling I recommend picking up a WRX. I'm an Evo fan myself, but Subies are reliable (my brother's Impreza has almost 240k on the stock motor) and are great for taking off road. Plus AWD>FWD.
