jknobler, I'm not going to give you advice on which vehicle to purchase. I'm simply going to congratulate you for having good grammar and punctuation. That means you possess diligence, attention to detail and are probably smarter than the average 17 year old who only knows texting grammar and punctuation.
In the end you will have done your homework about the vehicle purchase, there'll be some emotion involved in the decision-making process which is inevitable, you'll find that your final choice comes with advantages and disdvantages as does everybody else's and you'll likely learn that satisfaction with your choice comes in knowing what YOU are happiest 'living with'. For example, 'I can live with the disadvantage of increased maintenance because the camaraderie of the Rover community is more important to me.' Or perhaps conversely, 'I can live with the costly gas mileage and frumpiness of an older 4Runner because I know I can travel every weekend without the worry of an expensive breakdown which will cost time and money'.
Good luck and don't forget to do good homework on all your post-high school options. The world is truly your oyster at this point in your life.
Alright, this is just fancy car camping, people. Move along, move along.
