    Which one to buy?

    Well I am going to be buying a new car and having trouble picking one. I got them narrow down two cars at dealership I need help picking which one I should get. The top two things I want is mpg and reliability.So first is 2010 Ford Ranger with 4 cyl at 14 thousand miles for 13 thousand dollors with 10 % loan or 2002 Honda Accord with 18 thousand miles for 12 thousand dollors and loan would be like higher then the Ranger?

    Rangers are great trucks but the accord is going to get better mileage...

    Wow a 2k2 with 18K? I would go with the accord. But I see the ranger having a bit more reliablity with being newer. But if the accord was taken care of then I dont see it being a problem in the future as long as you do the same.

    I would take the accord for mpg and reliability. Hard to beat the fact that honda's last forever.

    Re: Which one to buy?

    Not surprising. I bought one ranger back in 2002 and will never do it again myself lol.

    I just sold my Acura Integra (made by honda) and that had over 200k in miles and ran like a champ with next to no major work other then basic maintenance and upkeep.

    It was brand new in 02..was an 03 model to be technical.


    The truck just had a slew of random issues over the course of a year. I original purchased it as a "get around truck" from myself, but after the issues I just made it the shop beater truck for a few months and then just sold it do the increasing costs to keep it going.

    So weird I hear mix reviews about the ranger some have problems all the time and some have zero weird? My step dad had Ford Ranger and never did anything to it barley changed oil and it just gave up at 230,000 miles . I guess I will just keep my eyes open I really don't want truck but price is good for my area and I am getting out Hvac school here in hopefully in couple months so be use full for side jobs .

    Re: Which one to buy?

    i would go with an 8th generation accord LX for around 12k or at least a 2006, 2007 model. but that 2002 is pretty much brand new at 18k miles! might be a good buy

    Re: Which one to buy?

    Owned a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT that I bought used in 1998 with 42k miles on it. Got it for $13k, drove it for 14 years, and put about another 125k miles on it with no issues. Great little truck. (Mine was the 4.0L , manual, 4WD).
    Still own a 2004 Honda Accord that I bought for the mean old woman. Had a bit less than 50k miles on it when we got it in March 2007...now sporting well over 150k, and absolutely trouble-free. I expect we can do another 100k miles without much trouble.

    I would go with the Honda, less u need the truck for a purpose.....
