Hey Gang,

I'm down to choosing a big tow-vehicle and my choice after much study is between a Chevy Suburban (2001) or a Ford Expedition (2000). I'm picking those years 'cause Consumer Reports says those are the most reliable versions of each car. Apparently the Suburban gets better gas mileage and is more popular, but I think the Ford looks much better and could be had for up to $5,000 less.

Any thoughts on this? Most importantly, any rule of thumb about how many miles is too many when making this purchase? My gut is telling me over 30K is too much.

Thanks in advance for the help and thoughts!

Best,

Broadway Slow-Trigger Finger Dan
