Currently I drive a 2000 Nissan Froniter. I had a dump truck reverse into me. There was about $1500 worth of damage done to it, which the company paid for. I was not hurt. I get it back from the dealer tomorrow. So, I have been driving my mom's 2002 or 2003 Honda Accord Special Edition. Its been 6 years since I drove a car and I enjoyed driving her car.

I have been looking at getting a new truck. I have two friends that want to buy my truck. Now since I have been driving my mom's car this week, I have thought about getting a sedan and keeping my truck. So, should I keep my truck and get a sedan or sell my truck? I own a house, so that's why I want to have a truck. There's nothing wrong with my truck. It has 37,200 miles on it.

If you're looking for a new truck, look at the Nissan Titan. Very nice truck.

no.. i disagree with you on the nissan titan.. it looks good, but they have serious brake issues.. nissan has sent out a "repair kit" on them, but that too has been failing.. same thing with the armada.

why not upgrade to the new frontier? or a tacoma? or Ranger?

I think the brake issue is pretty old...Not sure if they still have it.

I purchased an used 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8S last night. It has 1427 miles on it (at the time of the purchase). I got it for $12,909. The terms are 6% for 60 months. I kept my truck. I did test drive a PT Cruiser and I felt like I was in a box.

Keep the truck, unless you need to carry more stuff or more people. No sense in taking on additional cost for no reason. 37,000 miles is practically nothing, and its only 5 years old.

First off you would want to decide on buying new or used. Then you could always have a better pre owned option which would buy you more used truck than a new one.

You may choose from a variety of good condition trucks from http://www.automotix...s/for_sale.html which are posted for sale directly from owners.
