If you can find a low mileage 14 that has a clean history you should at least consider it I'd think.
Yep, avoid buying a rental car, at least one that was from Miami-Dade county. I know someone who works at a car rental place and he tells me that the mechanics are so lazy they falsify records all the time...they don't do the oil change, etc. but say they did. That's the problem down here in Miami-Dade county, it is such a mix of US and foreigners from all over including 3rd world countries that just don't have the background to know what the responsibilities of being an employee are (good customer service, etc.) that you have people that cut important corners all the time (don't even get me started about construction stuff). In the case of vehicle maintenance, there could be accidents with people hurt or killed.

Also, was in a friend of a friend's auto repair shop.....they take totaled cars, unbend the frames, etc. and sell them. I was shocked. They should just part them out for the good parts but instead were pulling out a front end that was totally crumpled up, the hood was a "V" shape, airbags etc. There is no way these unbent frames have the same structural integrity as when original...I was just shocked at what I was seeing (oh, and I didn't even want to ask about the roosters in cages out back). I don't know how they can get them to drive a straight line...
