I was in an accident last week that has left my car totaled. This is in some ways a blessing. Insurance will pay off the remainder of my loan and I no longer have a car payment.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> But I do need to replace the car. I considered going without, but we do not live in a pedestrian friendly area. So I have always bought new cars from the dealer. My financial situation isn't stellar right now. My credit's not great and I don't really want another loan. I have about $2000 that was earmarked to pay down debt, but I'm thinking will go to purchasing a car. I can then use the money that would go toward a car payment to pay off debt. I need something that will accomodate 3 carseats. I don't even know how to go about looking. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And time is of the essence considering I could have a baby any day now.
