Don't Make a Mistake When Choosing a New Car

Sponsored Post

Hey neighbors!

Are you considering purchasing a new vehicle anytime soon?  We purchased a new, used vehicle a few months ago, and honestly we might have made a wrong choice.  We are considered a semi-large family.  We have six children, although they are no longer children.  Three of them have already moved out, and the youngest still at home is almost 17.  Anyway, we have owned larger vehicles for years.  We have owned a couple of Suburbans, a large passenger van and actually owned a small shuttle bus at one time.  Everyone LOVED riding in the bus.  So, we decided to sell our Suburban and get a different vehicle.  My husband has said for several years now that he will always own a Suburban, but when we started looking around he sort of changed his mind.

At one of the first lots we visited they had a Jeep.  It is, in my opinion, quite small.  It also was not the most comfortable vehicle to ride in.  Now, I am getting a little older and I would like to be comfortable when we travel.  So, after seeing a Equinox, I sort of suggested that it was a little bigger, and definitely more comfortable.  We narrowed it down to two different vehicles.  Both were Equinoxes, one was basically new and one was a few years old.  We went with the older one.

Well, wouldn't you know we are both now thinking we should have chosen another Suburban.  Although the Equinox is a nice vehicle, comfortable and runs well, we miss the space.  We still have three basically adult children in the home, and when we want to go somewhere altogether it is a little tight.  We do have a second vehicle, but it is not always convenient to take two vehicles.  We also love to go to yard sales and antique shops.  A Suburban has much more room for transporting items home.  Then there is the cargo trailer we own.  A Suburban makes it much more feasible to pull the trailer than the Equinox.

So, before you go shopping for a new vehicle, take some time to think about what you need and what would work best for your personal situation.  If you are single and want a sports car, that is great, but if you are planning to get married soon, you might want to go with a family sized vehicle.  Married and planning on having children?  Go ahead and consider that mini-van or SUV.  Another thing to consider is if the car seats will fit properly. can help you with this.

You may even want to consider repairing your old vehicle.  I sort of wish we had.  We probably could have found the parts we needed at a local junkyard.  My dad used to check junkyards all the time for parts before purchasing them new.

Thanks for stopping by today and look forward to seeing you again soon.
