Overall cost is not much of a factor, within reason compared to like vehicles. I am looking for a very humble yet functional vehicle for my brother and I to use. It will be "his" since I have the Tacoma but I'm the one with the dough and good credit and plan on sort of sharing it too.
Factors to consider:
No need to be eye catching, flashy trim/body style, etc
we live in the Midwest so capability in the snow and any adverse weather is a huge buying factor for us
Decent to great mileage would be preferable(obviously) but paying my own bills as well as helping him through college will mean gas mileage is a factor too.
Reliable reputation as well as good factory warranty (looking to buy new to newish and have it last through college and hopefully many years to come!)
Basically vehicle options that are very functional/reliable/economical without wasting a dime on anything "extra"
Yes, before anyone is rude, I am doing a ton of research on my own every single day in my free time. I do however appreciate the suggestions of fellow TWers and like getting a fresh perspective. Any leads as to something I hadn't considered or found yet will really help with my search. I felt like, humble yet functional was a good description but any questions that would help narrow are welcome.
Don't wanna be living in the stone age with no AC or something, but don't need anything extravagant either. . .
Thanks for any input fellas. I'm sure some of yalls siblings kinda rely on you too and you understand my plight. And no flamers please, if you don't have some positive advice I'd appreciate some self-control. I know it's hard, I put my foot in my mouth too
Thanks in advance
