    Depends on what you can afford, and what your tastes are. Here's some typical advice:
    - Look for the newest one you can afford
    - Look for low miles
    - Look for an unmodified vehicle, or ensure all modifications were done correctly
    - 2008 is typically considered the "worst" year due to squishy suspension and "low" power. Both these problems got fixed in '09.
    - That being said, you can typically find a better deal on an '08... or so they say. I've never bothered to look.
    - 2011 went widebody

    1998. Those are my favorite, therefore you should get that one.
