Default Looking for a used car, between two choices.

Hey guys, i'm doing some shopping for a used car and would like some input from people that might know a little more about cars than me. This is gonna be the last car before I graduate college, so i'm hoping to have it last for 4 or 5 years. I'm paying for school myself, so i'm sort of ballin on a budget. I have $5,000 cash saved up and I really don't want a loan, so i've narrowed it down to two choices. The first is a 2003 Saturn Vue. It's the base model with 98,000 miles. Looks in great shape, checks out okay with the mechanic. The second is a 99 Mitsubishi Galant. It's a little older, but it only has 59,000 miles. Also in good condition and checks out okay. I'm leaning towards the Vue because I would prefer the SUV, but I'm a little worried about the mileage. Any opinions as to which one I should go for? The Galant is 500 bucks cheaper if it means anything. Thanks for any input in advance.

you really should shop the internet sites like ebay auto, etc. i'd think you could find a better used car than those two for $5k.....

someone here ran a Used Car lot, i can't remember which poster it was tho.

well blablabla just remember you want to start up a beef with me. i can't throw rep out anymore so i can't have a neg rep back and forth convo with you so i'm posting this, but if you want troll wars you got it pansy. i'll troll everything you type where you will be forced to put me on ignore lol.

i just don't get why pansies that are so weak like you want to always try to start fights with me so out of the blue, and especially when i'm not harming anyone. oh well, just don't cry later.

Stay away from the Mitubishi. Good car but expensive to repair, parts are nuts. I've had two Mits over the years and they eat you out of house and home. The cars don't break more often than other cars but when they do your wallet knows it's been tapped.

Saturn's been out of business for how long now? Be weary of that supply line drying up in the future

The car i'm pushing now isn't going to pass inspection and it's two months over already, hence the rushing. Appreciate the replies, maybe i'll look around a little more. Just can't afford to get pulled over and towed in the meantime.

Where are you going to school? If it's someplace in an area not known to turn cars into rust buckets if you could wait and buy one when you're there that would be a bonus
