I'm going to be buying a used car in the next few months. I have a 2003 mustang that is terrible on gas with 147,000 miles on it. I'm scared it wont make it from Vermont to California. So my question is what would y'all recommend? I always seem to load my car full of stuff but trying to pack light this time. Is there an "ideal" travel nurse car? I'm currently in Vermont, which had snow when I arrived in March. My mustang did not do well in snow. I don't plan to go back up to the northern states, but I never know where I will go. Psych openings are limited so I'm not to picky. My dream has been to go to California, and after waiting almost 5 months to get my liscense, I'm ready to go. Also looking for a travel buddy. I'll be done in Vermont in December and looking to go to Cali in January 2015. Any tips, comments, suggestions on a great vehicle for travel or California would be most apprieciated.
