Please keep in mind I am a pretty big guy (6'7" tall and 215 lbs)


Where do I begin? Where do you live- does it snow there? Is AWD important to you? How much of that $600/ month will be going toward insurance? How much have you budgeted for maintenance and repairs (those costs could be significant on the most of the models you mentioned)? Do you need room to haul a lot of stuff on a regular basis?
