The wife and I are searching for a new used car that I can just drive back and forth to work everyday. We've narrowed our options down to 2-a '97 Maxima GXE(I think its GXE), 117,000 miles, all the goodies for the year, or a '99 Explorer, 2dr, 2wd, manual, 72,000 miles, both for around the same price. I know the Max has higher miles, but being a Nissan, wont it probably last longer anyways? But then repairs will also cost more for it. I dont really want the Explorer, but if it makes more sense, thats what I'll do. All opinions are appreciated.
