1. BMW's would cost too much to fix in the long run
3. It's an older car and I'm not a fan of Eclipses.
5. I don't like trucks and SUV's

I'd take the Mustang because it has the new tires, brakes, and plugs. Or I'd take the 5k and wait til we got something in where I work. I work at a Saturn car dealership and I can get some good employee prices. I love having connections.

The mustang. Because a ford is a relaible car and the mustang is very relaible and if you dont believe me it has been around for about 45 years. The japanese turd mobiles are crap no horsepower and NO torque but that depnds on your style. I have always had problems with dodges and i dont know about a BMW.

I would go with the Mustang, it is cheap to fix as long as you don't blow the motor. Remember this to all that read, If you keep up with regular maintenance on any vehicle. They will ussually go a LONG time

Mustang since its newer and an icon.

Not a truck guy, so wouldn't consider Dodge Ram.

BMW would require a lot of maintenance and repair and it is very expensive.

Mitsubishi Eclipse is probably at the end of its life.

Remember, you get what you pay for.

Whatever you decide made sure to check the carfax report and have the car inspected by a certified mechanic. You are buying these cars 'AS IS' so you won't have any recourse in case the car turns out to be a headache.....

From these choices I'd choose the Mustang. I think the BMW would be expensive to repair down the road. The Mitsubishi is an older car. I don't think Dodge makes good cars. The miles are kind of high on all of the cars. I'd have to test drive the car to really decide because it's got to feel right to me behind the wheel.
