Picking a used car
24 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: volvo.jpg]
Due to special circumstances, my family has found itself with 3 cars that it doesn't need and they want to get rid of one of them. I can take one of them back to school with me for free. As a broke as fuck college student, I'm happy to oblige. The problem is that I don't know shit about cars.
The options are:
>1992 Volvo 240DL, 120k miles. Needs a new radio and windshield wipers, and could definitely use some speakers that aren't shit as a bonus
>Subaru Outback ~2002. 180k miles. Has had a broken head gasket in the past, which was fixed.
>Subaru Forester 2003 or 2004. Not about mileage but I want to say it's in the ballpark of 140k. Has an oil leak that will supposedly be very expensive to fix.
I live in a rural area and need to drive long distances and be able to survive some snowfall. Thoughts?
