The commuter vehicle sure saved me on gas, but I just did not feel safe or comfortable in it. I was also going through tires like crazy because the econoboxes use low rolling tires that don't last too long. My insurance was also higher. A few years later, I decided to get rid of the commuter vehicle and bought a 2012. I took more of a beating in depreciation than any gas savings had I kept the 2009. You can't put a price on your safety, comfort or happiness. One alternative to consider is to keep the truck for the weekends and buy a beater vehicle for your city ride.
Yet another way to go, if he can afford to do so. Good advice.
