I am about to take a whirlwind trip from Nashville up through the southern rockies with my dog during a down week. I have a 1996 w/ 130 on the clock, which is about to need new tires, at the end of the summer. Should I rent a nice wagon or something else that I can sleep in or should I take my ride, which I would prefer. I am thinking that the MPG, miles that I would put on it and the fact that I want to do about 85-90 on the flats would make me lean towards a rental.....and, I am the reason that you should never buy a used rental car...... There are a lot of deals out there, nice rental, unlimited miles for 300.00....not a geo metro either.
