edited to add: sorry for hijacking the thread! We are so pumped about the DR plan but immediately we are just confused about what to do with this stupid car that we are STILL paying insurance for monthly!!
If you are going to be a 1 car family I would sell the Subaru, not the toyota. It sounds like a very reliable vehicle that you know the history of. How much would a rental car cost in your area? How often do you all drive somewhere together? Would getting a closed side crate for the dog and tying it in the bed be an option for the dog? Just trying to help brainstorm :)
hmm thanks for the suggestion! We do lots of driving together, we go to a lot of parks and beaches which very few of (a couple are) in walking/biking distance. We don't own bikes anyway, my mom sold mine without asking and DH's bike was kidnapped by his sister who moved to Oregon with it..Thanks family!!
Anyway, I don't think we could afford a rental every time we needed to go, somewhere together. We usually try to take puppy with us most places because she has issues, separation anxiety is a big one.
We actually use a closed side crate, the tan plastic type one, because puppy as managed to destroy the all wire ones and actually collapsed one in one herself. I don't even know how she managed to do that one!
Yes the toyota is the more reliable car. DH and I are just very torn on what to do. Fix the Subaru and just keep it for a while is what he is voting for, I just don't know. At times I feel like the best thing to do would be to sell it for as much as I can get it for right away!
