I'm trading my '99 Ranger 4x4 (111,000 mies) and '96 Contour (127,000) for the Jeep (95,000 miles). Both my vehicles need work, the Ranger needs very minor front end work (tie rod ends or ball joints) but no rust and super clean. The Contour is definitely a beater commuter car, nothing special, makes noise, but clean, no rust, rips, tears. The guy is handy with cars and needs a good gas mileage commuter. I drive 14 miles on country roads one way to work so the Contour is costing me more to insure than it saves me in gas.
