My mechanic has a great truck for me that he is going to sell cheaply. I know that it's going to cost a lot in gas, but I don't have much money right now and I wanted to get something I feel safer driving in the winter in. Do any of you drive trucks? If so do you like it? I would not have a car payment and I wouldn't have to use all of my income tax to buy a new one. It's a dodge dakota with an extended cab. I trust my mechanic. He actually bought the truck for himself but has decided he didnt really need it. He also personally knows the previous owner and knows that he drove the vehicle every day. I haven't even driven a van in a long time. Not sure how different it is to drive a truck.
