Default My First vehicle may be an 11yr old Ford

:Cold: :Ultra-sigh: :run:

My mom's been having some problems with her 94' Ford Explorer lately with 190,000+ miles....possibly because she runs it hard. The tranny has given out, the 4wd has pooped, multiple electrical problems, and ignition issues. Now she's thinking about buying a new vehicle in about a year or so (possibly a Rav 4 or full size Suv) and she wants to give me her piece of Ford. I hate Ford. All of those issues have been fixed though, the latest one which was the ignition. We had the key colunm thing replaced, now there's 3 freakin keys for the Explorer. One for the door, one for the ignition, and on for the glove box [:@] Wtf. She's also been in an accident with a Caravan, drivers side impacted. The driver door and front panel replaced. Another with the Izuzu as I previously posted. Grill plus hood added. If I do end up getting her 94' Ford explorer in about a year or less, what should I do? Should I keep it as a host so I can use it just to get to work until I can afford a vehicle? Or should I dump it and buy a used/new cheap car? Btw, I plan to go to college so money is tight. Kelly Blue Book private party also said it's worth $3,680, but I think that's high. I know some idiot would probably buy it though. lol

I know that, but should I take it and sell it, or keep it and run it?


The Viper is too much to run as an everyday vehicle. V10 gas guzzler.

I bet you new guys think I'm a semi-rich guy too. lol. I kind of like it though getting good comments about the Viper in my signature. Anyways, back to the topic. Should I sell immediately or keep as a host?
