Buying a used vehicle

      My hubby drives 45-60 minutes each way to work. We get oil changes for his car, even more often than 3000 miles, check the belts regularly, check the fluids often. Just making sure nothing runs low or is used beyond safe limits.

      There is more extensive work it could use, but for now, it is not in the budget. We do as much maintenance on it as we can. It is one of the smaller pickup trucks. Not much of a saver on gasoline, let me tell you. We are thinking of getting him a small sedan for his commute. Not “sexy”, but reliable and easy to use as a backup “family car” if needed. The truck only holds two comfortably.

      Our second vehicle is for the whole family, but gets less wear & tear, since I take a bus to work and only have to get to the bus pick up location myself.

      Buying a replacement car, even a used one, is not in the cards for me.
      So far I’m trying to be really careful about bringing it for
      maintenance, but do you have any tips for nursing this car along?
