What should I get after my NA Fairlane?
I'm planning to sell the damaged car for some money and get another car as replacement, the car must meet the following criteria:
-Bigger than a Telstra
-Less or equivalent fuel consumption as my MPFI I6 Fairlane
-Strong and tough structure
-A/C & Cruise control is a must
-Best if electric windows are equipped
-Can't spend more than $7k, including all costs
Here are the cars that are currently on my list:
1. Ford NA Fairlane
Same as the previous one, but it would be a bit strange to get the same car.
2. Ford EB/ED Fairmont
Pros: Better trimming than NA Fairlane
Cons: Some gadgets are omitted. Also sounds a bit more expensive compared to another NA.
3. Ford EF Futura
Pros: Nice look and better engine, Airbags
Cons: Lower level of equipment and low end trimming doesn't sound to attractive to me.
4. VN/VP Calais
Pros: Fuel consumption, IRS for VP
Cons: Harsh motor, usually poor maintainence, hoon car image, weak chassis, horrible shape, it's a Holden
5. VR Commodore / Toyota Lexcen
Pros: Fuel consumption, modern shape, IRS
Cons: Low level of equipment, expensive, weak chassis, it's a Holden
6. Mitsubishi TR/TS Magna
Pros: Low prices, fuel consumption
Cons: I don't like it's a FWD and the ugly shape
7. Toyota Camry (Wide bodied)
Pros: Fuel consumption, it's a toyota
Cons: The car that hit my Fairlane is a TOYOTA!, looks like every other car on the road, FWD
8. Nissan Maxima
Pros: Good engine, fuel consumption
Cons: Expensive, FWD
9. Nissan Cima (Import)
Pros: I can do the import myself!, moderate price, luxurious, RWD, fuel consumption, good engine, it's an import!
Cons: It's an import!, expensive to maintain, complicated to work on, I need to wait for 6 weeks.
Ok, so what u guys believe I should get?
