I totally forgot to come here and be happy about what DP and I did a month or so ago!!<br><br>
We owned a Jeep Liberty SUV (which, for those of you who are not familiar, are terrible with gas- about 13 miles to the gallon if that) that DP drove for work all the time. She drives like 3-4 hours a day, so you can imagine the cost of gas for the SUV, plus the environmental crappiness. We bought it because it was big enough, we thought, for more car seats than a car would hold.<br><br>
But when I had our daughter, we realized that the narrow back doors on the thing make it impossible to get dd in and out comfortably, esp since we bought a Boulevard. And gas prices were rising terribly, but we still owed money on it and didn't think we could sell it for what we owed (stupid decisions years ago, which we've since remedied).<br><br>
So....we traded it to someone else for a newer Mazda which happens to get 35 miles to the gallon!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">: We did it on Craigslist, and it was an even trade. In the process, we got a better car loan rate for a shorter term through our bank.<br><br>
It is SO GREAT. Safer car, more room for dd, better gas mileage, better rate. Just awesome. And this will be the LAST TIME we ever get a loan for a car. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
