My teenage son will soon take our beat up '02 Civic as his own so that means that I need to find a replacement vehicle. Since we will be moving to Vermont full-time within 2-3 years and we have a long steep driveway not to mention that the cabin is on a class 4 road that is not plowed, it will need to be awd or 4x4. Buying a new car is not an option at this time but since we are still in Florida I would like to find a local rust free car to take up north. I have scoured CL to see what is available in the market to get a general idea of what would work for me and I came up with three potential options. Option #1. Subaru Forester or Outback around 10 years old. Great cars and there seem to be quite a few available but they all seem to be at or around 100k in mileage and due for a timing belt. Not a deal breaker but worth noting. Option #2. Mid to late 90's Toyota 4runner. I previously owned a '96 and they are absolute tanks but getting hard to find in decent condition without a million miles on them. Option #3. Late 90's to early 2000's Ford F150 4x4. Surprisingly hard to find here in red neck country but persistence can pay off. So with a $5000 budget, which option would you prefer? A suggested 4th option would be welcome too.
