Year or mileage are of some concern, but maintanience history is the most important. Was it taken care of? Any of the cars you mentioned will be fine, as they are reliable. The mitsibishi's aren't as reliable, but if it was taken care of, you should be OK. Any older used car you will be putting money into it, some more, some less.
