need to buy a car
we currently have 2007 Toyota Sienna and 1996 Toyota Corolla.
with 292,000 miles on the corolla, its time to move on--
especially as its begining to show some body rust, and repairs are getting more frequent.
we are looking for a used car that we can afford. $200/month
for 3-4 year loan (that's around $10-12k i think)
needs to get decent gas milage (something around 20 mpg)
4 door are critical and interior roominess (its hawling around 3 people over 6 ft and 250 lbs)
reliable, reliable, reliable-- i get oil changes, give it gas, wash it occassionally, replace tires, brakes and exhaust as needed and have it checked at a dealership about every 50,000 miles.
it will be getting about 10k-12k miles per year
looking for something from year 2000 or newer
not to fussy about color, would like ac and disc player
not tied into any manufacturer.
so what cars/vans have a good rep as used vehicles?
thanks for suggestions
