First can we talk about these cute pics from looking at the sunset last night?! Second, okay, let’s get serious for a minute? Marcus and I have been talking about buying a new car for, well, forever. We want one that is going to last us a long time through more kids and with the space we need. Car shopping totally intimidates me though. Especially as a woman, I just worry that I’m not taken totally serious and am going to get well, screwed. When I bought our last car I really thought I was getting a good deal, but there have been quite a few things I was totally lead astray on. SO I am really doing my research and homework this time around. I also would love to hear any input y’all have.
I’ve found a place online that I can actually trust because of their recent addition with Kelley Blue Book. I actually remember using Kelley Blue Book looking for my very first car as a teenager. It was something my Dad taught me how to use to ensure that I was paying a reasonable price for the car I was looking at. Well, Autotrader recently implemented a Kelley Blue Book advisor on all of their listings! Which now makes it easy for me to see the prices it should be at compared with the price it’s listed at. I mean, win, win right? SO I’ve been looking on there a ton. Us buying is still a little bit out, but like I said I want to really do my homework and research this time to ensure I am making the right choice and not over paying.
Which leads me to my next point, Mamas who drive SUVs, tell me what you love, don’t love, wish you had, etc. about yours! I want something bigger like a Suburban, looked at this on Autotrader. We drove one when we were in Texas as a rental car (and remember, got rear-ended in) and it seriously was a boss and I fell in love! They’re just friggin’ spendy. SO hit me with your favorite SUVs, I want three rows for sure, would love to have the option for a TV so Blake (and future kids) can watch movies and something that’s going to last me for the long haul because I’m all about getting my money worth!
