i could use a little help on making a decision on my next vehicle purchase which I would like to happen in the upcoming months. I need to replace my truck. My 2000 Sierra is so rotten it’s been designated yard truck for the last three years, mainly used for plowing my driveway. It’s to the point where it’s likely time just to send her to scrap and have a road worthy truck again. My situation is this. I have a 35km daily commute to work, and i do a lot of driving after work (hockey games, errands...etc). I live in Glen Haven do it’s easily a half hour drive to anywhere I need/want to go. So with that, the debate begins on what I actually want for a truck. Ideally, I would sell my Ford Focus and just drive the truck, but I think I’d have a massive gas bill on top of my truck payment if I got a 1/2 ton. On the other hand, am I really saving money by insuring/fueling/maintaining a second vehicle? The compact pick ups are becoming more popular. I shouldn’t have much trouble plowing my yard with one. I would likely go for a few years old Tacoma or Canyon/Colorado. I don’t know much about the Rangers yet. But I figure if the compacts are more fuel efficient, I might be able to sell my car and just use the truck. So basically I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about this financially and overall what makes the most sense. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
