If this is for economics you have to consider a few things:

- if the truck is reliable. Any $3k car may need some expensive work done to it.

- 25 mpg for a car? Maybe for a really small one but certainly not for every car. Around town I think my V6 Fusion is closer to 20 mpg. My ScanGauge just arrived yesterday and I haven't hooked it up yet.

- If you are going to also keep the truck then you also have an additional vehicle to insure.

- Are there ways for your dad and step-mom to simply swap vehicles making the total cost less for the family.
