Come December my wife and I are hoping to get a new Subaru to replace her ten year old vehicle. My question . . . I'm trying to decide which car to keep and which to sell . . . my Honda Accord with 174,000+ miles or her Subaru Outback with 117,000 miles. Both are 2003 models. The Subaru has AWD. There are a couple of minor rust spots that need fixing. It rides a lot stiffer than the Accord and gets slightly less gas mileage. The Honda though obviously has higher mileage and inside and outside is in rougher shape (thanks to more general wear and tear . . . that and a very hard snowbank that I plowed into thinking it was softer than it turned out to be.) Honestly, I like the ride of the Accord better and keep thinking that selling the Subaru would net more money for the down payment . . . but then I wonder if this might be penny wise and pound foolish if the higher mileage vehicle were to crap out with some major issue in a year or so. Thoughts?
