my husband and I owe two vechiles, a 2001 dodge caravan, and a 2001 chevy prizm. We don't owe any payments (would hope not on cars that old..lol)
we were thinking of getting a 2010 or newer this spring time, but we decided we may just wait.
We half enough to pay half cash (save $300 a week), if we waited to next year we may beable to buy ALL cash!. I really don't want to give the banks extra money.
So since both cars work, aren't rusted out, and good on gas. Do you think we would be smarter to just wait it out?
also we were going with a SUV but I think I want a 4wd van instead, input on those too pls. Thanks
My husband and I have a car dealership. Cars are more expensive in the spring. The best deals are just before Christmas. If your cars are running ok, keep them until next fall. Chevy prism has a corolla motor, great running car. The caravan on the other hand, they are known for a lot of problems, since you had the caravan that many years, you probably replaced everything that could go wrong,lol!

I would wait. If both vehicles are paid for and good on gas your in a good spot! Save that money that you would be spending on a new car and like you said you'll be able to pay for it with cash and avoid interest and save on insurance as well. I would check on the gas mileage between the two. SUV's don't have the best gas mileage and are a bit more expensive for parts. Maybe even look at the pros and cons of the different makes of vehicles. I know Saturns for example are very expensive to get parts for as well as Fords. I believe both of those companies ask that you get the majority of the parts from the dealerships.
