Depends on the history and condition of either.


if niether has been in wrecks or has any major problems, i would go with the 05, it's cheaper and has less miles.


the 2005 has about 2 less years of miles on it but, if I had the choice I would lean toward the 2009 because it has a total of 4 years less overall wear, has newer technology/safety, larger body style, also has double wishbone suspension in the rear versus struts and "framed in windows". Tom is right, the individual history means a lot.
