Due to a recent family car accident i am in the market for a new car. I have narrowed it down to a mazdaspeed 3 or a mid sized truck. If i were to get a truck i wouldnt want to spend no more then about $25,000 and would like it to be somewhat capable off-road. From what ive seen theres the Ford ranger off road, and the Nissan frontier, gas millage isnt that necessary because i only put about 8,000 miles on my car a year. So if you guys could help me out on the truck then i could decide if i wana do some casual off-roading or play around with a mazdaspeed 3.

well most of us are gonna say speed3 better gas mileage, not that u care, but itll prolly be faster then any truck u get unless its a diesel turbo truck, i say speed3 as much as i love offroading with my jeep, last month i have just bene driving that, and it kinda sucks compared to my zx3 which i get back tommorow, THANK GOD lol

are u keepin the zx3, or is that the accident vehicle?
if yes, then get the speed3 cuz hatch's pwn and its mad fast
if no, then get the truck cuz off-roading fun as hell!
well heres the deal my sister crashed her zx5 and is most likely totaled, so instead of her buying a new car my parents are giving her their old car. They are probably going to take me zx3 because my mom puts about 30,000 miles on her car a year and needs good gas millage. I will probably get the money from the insurance and i will be putting that towards a car plus some of my money mainly because she wouldnt be able to afford the insurance on a new car. Its kinda confusing.
heres what the car looks like now
