for automotively inclined people...

Alrite, Im thinking about getting a car, not new, but nothing overly old. I do alot of driving on gravel and I need something that is relatively low maintenance, that will give me decent gas mileage. It can be a car/small SUV (uplander sort...) Any suggestions? Also, I have a vehicle 4.7L, Extended Cab, 4X4, Standard transmission, 4''lift, oversized tires, running bars, has 150k km, no rust, allround good condition.
Thanks, and ive also attached a photo of it.

Don't know how small of a car your looking for but we have a 95 honda civic that we run up and down the gravel roads here all the time, the car has been stolen, wrecked, abused and I don't want to even confess to the maintence we've slacked off on. AND the dang thing is still rolling strong with 189,xxx miles on it! btw it gets like 35 mpg. And you can fit a rubbermaid garbage can in the trunk!

When/if this car dies we will replace it with another honda!

Hondas are a little more to buy used as opposed to one of the big 3 american companies but in our experience it has been worth every penny! I bought this car 2 years old straight off lease and its been great.

ps I worked at 3 different car dealers before I became "supermom"

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
