I am beginning a new job in several weeks and would love to ditch my crappy Hyundai Elantra. The car has given me nothing but issues since I bought it 3 years ago.
Anyways, I've always wanted a truck ever since I was 5 years old. A blue pickup truck haha. I never went through with purchasing a truck though because I was concerned about gas mileage. Now that I am finished with college, have minimal student loans (less than 12k), and a nice job I'm looking to purchase a new vehicle in several months.
I have been considering a Ford Fusion (AWD) or an EcoBoost F150 with 4x4. I really have no reason to purchase a truck, I don't have anything to tow/haul and I'll have a 30 mile roundtrip commute to work everyday. Should I purchase the truck anyways?
BTW, I'm looking to spend around 35K tops.
Please feel free to chime in. Thanks
