We're Going Car Shopping...

May 22nd, 2008 at 11:27 am

tomorrow! We are actually looking for a van. My DH has the day off for the Memorial weekend. I have one vehicle picked out that is used that has everything I want. It's an older body style Honda Odyssey. That's the part that my husband doesn't like.

I've been so tempted to buy a new...like a 2008 Toyota Sienna, that I'm actually pleased to find an older vehicle with low miles and options I'm interested in.

I've been amazed at how much I'm swinging from one type of vehicle to the next. That includes being willing to borrow over $7,000 more! Crazy.

We'll see what we end up with...if anything. I really don't want to jump too quickly...especially if we start leaning towards new. In fact, we've never bought a brand new vehicle. Well, we leased one...but I wouldn't do that again.

Oh, don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the home equity payoff. It's still in the plans. Once I know what we are doing on this vehicle...it will be attacked swiftly!!

    Can't do much better than an Odyssey. We had one and got 160,000 miles out of it before it's little engine just couldn't pull us up the hill anymore. (4 kids, 2 adults, dog...) It was a 1997, the old, old style. We decided to buy new (usually do... but we keep the cars for a long time!)... and the dealer gave us $6000 for the eight-year-old Odyssey!

    I would buy one again in a second if I were in the market!

    Good luck!
