In the last 4 years or so , I have put way to many miles on my car and now we are feeling the pain of a car with way to many miles on it. Now that my commute is more like 8 to 10 miles roundtrip a day verses the 40 to 50 miles a day that I used to, we are in the market for a "new to us" car. We have put way to much money into the car lately and there are still things that would need to be fixed.
Tuesday, I had to take the car into the shop AGAIN and they had to keep it overnight so I rented a car for the night. The only thing they had left was a Dodge Grand Caravan mini-van. I fell in LOVE with this car. The sliding doors in the back open automagically, it has stow and go seats and many other features that are just awesome.
So last night, we braved the rain and freezing weather to start the hunt for the perfect used van for us. We are still on the hunt (which is good for us because we usually impulse buy). We're hoping to get a good deal since we are at the end of the year etc etc. Wish us luck.
