looking at cars

October 9th, 2017 at 11:02 pm

So I don't need a new car. But I want one. But more likely this will just be an exercise in thinking. Researching and contemplating new versus used and type. I'm not sure if I'm a minivan person or a big suv. I want something with 3 rows and carries more than 5 people.

Let me have it. Tell me all the pros and cons of each. What am I looking at? All minivans. I'm not sure if I should do used or new. It'll be a car we keep a long time. I haven't kept my car as long as I should. I already feel guilty contemplating getting rid of a 7 year old car. It's barely broken in.

I'm also thinking any SUV with three rows and the ones that come to mind are highlander, acura mdx, honda pilot and not sure whatever else.

This is not a new fetish but it is finally getting more serious contemplation.Tell me what you think and why certain suv or minivans are better than others. Did anything weigh into your decision? If you went used did you get a certain brand or model or just used suv or used minivan?

I should probably put this on the site.

    Out of the SUV's you've mentioned, I've had the Honda complaints, I've heard that the Highlander feels more like a truck on the road, not a smooth ride.

    I have nothing against it and don't know much about it, but I will say my stepson's Honda Pilot's engine blew less than two years after he bought it new.

    We have a Buick Enclave and love it. We have had it since 2013, bought new, and so far no problems.

    OK, let's talk practicalities. First, how many people in your household?

    2 adults and 2 kids. And no the subaru outback isn't cutting it anymore. We just didn't want to get a minivan when the kids were small and always said if we had a third we'd get one.

    Right now I'm leaning to a minivan. I think maybe it's just very practical. We're starting to do more carpools and I have wanted one before we moved. I was just thinking that I'd wait until next fall. That was the plan at least in my head financially it would make sense.

    But then I took on being a girl scout troop leader for my DK1 and I might end up doing it for DK2. Yeah I know.
