I have never been a fan of Chevy's. I still have a spot in my heart for another Wrangler which is Chrysler. If I bought another pickup, after my last one. Prius or not I would choose a Toyota. Getting rid of it was bittersweet, that truck was bullet proof.
I am still a Ford man though when it comes to cars, another Focus down the road is an option since they are a much improved car.
If I had the cash and if it were my choice, my Focus would be my commuter car. And my dream car,the Mustang Shelby GT 500 would be in my driveway for some weekend fun!
At this stage in my life, I have gotten to a point where cars are a means of transportaion to me. It would not matter the model, as long as it has a good reliabilty record, and the maintenance was kept up, I would buy the car. After all, my very first car was a, 1970 mustard yellow Ford Maverick with 77,000 miles on the clock for $750.00. :-D
