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.
