Hi everyone. I'm new to posting, but not new to the forums. Been reading them as a guest for some years, but just joined a month ago, or so. Anyway, I've had a emergency/survival plan for awhile now and keep going back and forth on which car to take if the situation arrises. The family includes wife, baby, dog (trusty companion and protector of all things family) and myself. Due to constrained budgets, the two car options include my 1991 Toyota Corolla wagon (191k miles), or my wife's 2007 VW Rabbit (50k miles). I'm always leaning towards the Toyota because in the 13 years I've owned it, it's never broken down, it's easy to fix, parts are readily available, and there's a lot of room. Also, if the timing belt goes, it won't ruin the engine. The cons for it are that it's old, there are some small oil leaks, virtually no safety features except seat belts, and it's got a lot of miles. The pros for the Rabbit are that it's newer with fewer miles, it's sturdy, tons of safety features. The cons are that I don't know how difficult it is to fix on my own or how easy it is to get parts for it. In an ideal world I'd have an ideal vehicle, but since we're here posting and reading on the prep/survival forum, things are not ideal. Thanks for your responses.
