    I can not decide what I want. I'm not looking to spend much, around $4,000-$4,500. Tomorrow I'm going to look at a 2006 Pontiac G6 GT hard top convertible and then a 2006 Eclipse. I also found a 2003 Nissan 350z for $4,000. I also like a 2007 Dodge Nitro I found for $4,000. I also like the Dodge Caliber and Dodge Avenger. I don't know what to do!

    I'm looking for something good on gas since I drive about 150 miles a day to school. My Expedition is killing me on gas.

    I'd be worried about an older high mileage Dodge or Pontiac being unreliable. I don't know about the 350z but the 240zs ran forever. There's a guy in my neighborhood that drives a 240z that has 400,000 miles on it.

    I had a Mitsubishi 3000GT and it ran forever, so I'm sure the Eclipse would last forever too if taken care of.
