I always give the same advice when people ask me what to buy... "Buy what you like". Because you are the one that has to be happy with it. I don't like the bashing here sometimes... "Why would you buy _____?".
Most modern vehicles are relatively similar... they all have similar warranties, get built in the same way, by similar people. There aren't a lot of models that are pure lemons anymore, though some models will have a few more problems than others.
If you find something that makes you smile, meets the specs you need, then buy it and be happy. I bought a brand new 4runner (2011) because on paper it was exactly what I needed... I owned a few Tacoma's and wanted an SUV. But, I just never fell in love with the look or feel of it. 9 months later I traded it on a Sequoia... and every time I drive it I think "Man, this is a real dream!".
I have a friend who feels the same way about his Suburban, and another about his 1 ton diesel Chev... it doesn't matter what I think (though I think they both are brain injured)... they love their trucks. Another buddy has had the worst luck with his 1 ton Dodge, but still loves the thing and buys all kinds of trinkets for it.
My first car was an 87 Mustang GT... typical kids car... what a piece of junk. But, in my head, still the best car I ever had.
Buy what you like.
