I’m very torn on the issue of a new car. On the one hand I do really love my truck, quite a bit, but on the other hand something new will have a warranty, a inherit sense(even new cars have problems) of reliably over and above what the truck has and much better gas mileage. I would really miss this truck, I’ve had lots and lots of good memories in it. But on the other hand it’s not far off, I think, from something major. The gas mileage is a big consideration. What I think thought is holding me up is, if I can’t get another Chevy Colorado, that the size of things I can get. I’d like to have room for anything I might need to carry. Not being able to carry a ladder no big deal, but I at least need to carry a tool box/es from time to time or a golf bag. So I don’t know and I don’t want a bare bones model, although I guess that’s sort of what I have now, but at least I do have power right now. Losing 100 hp is a lot, roughly I think it’ll be more like 70. I don’t know.
They are all roughly the same price and same engine. The Chevy Cruze and Buick Verano are smaller of the 4. The Cruze has the smallest engine but best gas mileage. The Honda Accord and Subaru Legacy(most $) are the bigger cars and the Jeep Compass is biggest, being that it’s a small SUV(has the worse gas mileage).
