Less repair but more cost to actually repair it. That's all there is to it. My friend had one of each class of those. Very reliable.if I could afford a 93 f150 starting at 8.25 with constant repairs(i lived with my mother so rent wasn't too concerning) then I'm positive you'll be okay. if it's what you want get it! :-)

Don't forget insurance, they are going to see teenager and BMW rates will go right through the roof. Weigh your options carefully, make some calls, then decide.
