So its come time to turn in the F150. Ive considered just getting another one, but the new Rams from what Ive seen are really nice and if you catch Dodge at the right time that can be quite bit cheaper than the F150 payment wise. Also another thing to consider is that I just got a new job and there will be a lot of driving involved so Im going to have to consider gas mileage. That said though I dont want to sacrifice comfort, again because of the driving. I like the truck and I like driving it and its very comfortable, I am not sure but it may be tough to go back to a car after driving a truck for three years. The thing about the Ford though is I never liked the payment and I wish I could get something cheaper, though Im not completely sure thats possible and still get what I like. I get an employee discount on Chevys actually but strangely even with my discount a payment on a Silvarado isn't really any cheaper than the Ford and I prefer the Ford, which is why I went with it in the first place. There isn't really anything that the Chevy has that would draw me from a Ford or Dodge aside from price. Now if GM would actually take that Caddillac 3.6TT and put it in a Colorado or Silvarado maybe they would get my attention but they refuse so...oh well. Other vehicles Im considering could be a Charger Scat Pack. Problem with that is I think the payment on that would actually be more than a truck right now, but I would have to talk to a dealer to be sure. Also Im a bit wary of the build quality of the FCA cars and Im afraid its just not going to hold up, but then again it will be a lease so does that even matter. Are the quality issues blown out of proportion by biased magazine writers and internet folk? I think maybe because there are tons of scat packs, hellcats and SRTs running around here and if they were crap I wouldn't see so many. I am in the metro Detroit area so I am in the heart of Chrysler country. Still seems like it would be a really fun car. The others are either a Taurus SHO, by far the cheapest of the bunch, but also probably the most boring, but hey people may actually get out of my way on the freeway because they will think its a cop car. A Chevy SS, Ive always loved that car but they are still going for 35+ around here, I would want a stick and finding one will require a bit of patience. I probably should have gotten one instead of the F150 when I still could get one new but I wanted to take a break from a stick for a bit and the discount on them sucked. Lastly a CTS V sport, they're going for around low 30s, but again potential GM quality issues. Also all of these cars are now out of production so I would have to buy one and would probably have a relatively high payment or I would have to finance one for a insane amount of time and I dont know if I really want to do that. As you may have noticed I like fast cars, but I also have two kids in car seats, so I need room, so thats why the full size sedan or truck. For someone that likes fast stuff a truck may be a surprise but the twin turbo F150s are surprisingly quick for what they are and with a tune they are quicker still. does anyone have any insights on any of these cars? I really need to get out and drive a few to see what I really like though.
