I was criticized for having a expedition but qualifying for Wic. Yet its a 2002 that we bought used after having our 3rd kid 5 yrs ago. We looked at several options. We knew we needed something to haul our trailer and to be able to fit our whole family in. (We sell woodcrafts) At the time we found a better deal on this than any mini van. And we liked it better. We paid it off last summer, a yr early and traded in dh old 96 truck and his 2001 mustang that I drove for work. These were both vehicles he bought before I met him. And got him a new 2011 ranger with a lower note than we had on the expedition and now lower insurance because we only have 2 cars. But we are spending more on gas.
