Exclamation I cant decide need help!

first off.. im working as a delivery driver for Jimmy Johns..
we drive fast..

I have a hyundai accent 2000 and right now... it could do better.. i need all four new struts, all new drums and disks, front calipers, brake pads, brake fluid flush, and tires. basically everything needed for the wheels needs to be replaced. right now its at 131,000 and going higher, but i spend about 6 dollars a day on gas diving like a maniac.

on the other hand.. im buying a chevy impala.. this car only needs a set of used tires.. i can get some good tires for cheap and thats all i would need to repair for this car. but other then that its a 3.8 v6 with strait pipes and modified air intake and a beefed up automatic tranny. i call it the beast because it sounds like a beast. im buying it from a friend and so right while im still deciding wether or not to buy it im using the hyundai.

what should i stay with? hyundai or impala? or should i get a totally different car? idk what to do..

How hard do you abuse the car for it to actually need new discs? My 110,000 mile minivan has been abused its entire life and the discs don't even need resurfacing.

Impala sounds abused.

Buying a car from a buddy is a bad idea.

"beefed up automatic tranny"? What does that even mean?

I read it and skipped right over it. I doubt someone yanked the transmission and put money into it and then attached it to a v6. I think the transmission was beat up, not beefed up.
