Hubby & I are considering a new vehicle later on this year. We've been stashing some money aside for a nice deposit, but only if we can keep payments in the $300 range.
Both of our vehicles are getting up there in miles. My 2001 Ford Escape has 121,000 miles on it. Hubby's 2004 Dodge Caravan has 119,000 on it. We usually put in a few hundred dollars worth of repair on our cars once or twice a year as needed. I personally love my Escape and I don't want to get rid of it just yet. I can go another year in it and I would replace it with another Escape.
Hubby loves his mini-van but our third row is a traditional bulky row that we have to pull in and out. So if we go ahead and replace his, he is wanting another mini-van with the stow-away seating.
We have always owned American-made vehicles, but we may consider other car-makers this time around. Please tell me what you drive, what you love or hate about your car/truck/mode of transportation!
