I commute to work about 3 times a week (160 miles a day, or about 500 per week) from WV to DC. The WV part has lots of hills and average speed is 75-80mph for 50miles. The DC part has crater size potholes and stop and go traffic for 20miles.
I currently drive a 2000 corolla that has 75k miles. It hasnt given me any major problems, always starts up. I dont care about luxury, just want a workhorse car.
I can get a brand new 2015 automatic mitsubishi mirage for $8000. Should I buy it or keep the corolla? I dont like getting into debt but the $8000 is a good deal. But on the other hand, I already have a capable car that hasnt given me any problems.
What do you guys suggest?
