Default Which car should I buy? 2005 Scion TC or 2001 Mirsubishi Eclipse GT?

The eclipse is at 99,000 miles and going for $3,000 with a girl seller so I'm assuming she took care of it.















The scion tc has 119,000 miles and is going for $6,500. I'm looking at two scions both prices and mileage similar but one has underglow lights so it's probably a kid that beat the car up and the other is just a Mexican guy about 30 yrs old probably. I test drove his scion and everything worked and went smooth.















However, I'm scared to spend $6500 on a car! Which one would be the most reliable and last the longest? I know a lot of reviews say scion is made "cheap" but toyota is also awesome

The Eclipse is priced cheaply because it is not a dependable car. Get the Scion. Consumer Reports will recommend the Scion over the Eclipse.

I would not assume a girl owner took care of the car. Do not assume anything ever. Always take the car for inspection by your own trusted mechanic or shop. I would favor the Scion over the Eclipse but again, take the Scion for a PPI (Pre Purchase Inspection). Also, take a look at the Carfax report. Pay for it.
