    I think it's hard to say which cars are better.
    It's all personal preference. Naturally, your going to say the bad things about the cars/trucks you don't like.
    Don't even get me started on how much I hate Ford. We had one that after 12,000, just shut down. Ford refused to fix it, even though it was under warranty (they tried, but decided fixing everything else would be better, instead of the one issue). Yet my boyfriends Chevy is running strong after 300,000 miles. I completely respect Ford as a company, they make great cars and trucks, but, personally, I would never get one.
    Sure, your going to find great cars, and crappy cars.. You could have two completely identical cars, same year, make, horsepower, COLOR, and one run like a piece of poopy.

    Completely true, I know people who swear by Chevy, but both my parents have had Chevies and they are good cars, but the ones they owned were unreliable and constantly breaking down. They were dumping do much money into repairing them, they had to get other cars.

    At first I admit that I haven't read whole the thread so I'm not sure if that piece of advice have already been given but... I suggest that whatever you end up to have, have something older and less valuable. In the beginning it can be hard to estimate where the car goes and you're still learning otherwise too so if you've something older, few scratches and bumps don't matter so much. And you don't have that stress that you'd with new-ish car and scratching it .
