      I suggest you look for a late model used car. Take your time and

      wait for the one you “know you want” as soon as you see it. We

      haven’t purchased a new car since 1972! Auto warranties are fairly

      long now, so if you get a car that’s 1-2 years old it will still be

      under the factory warranty. We bought a beautiful used car 5 years

      ago. It was 2 years old and had 27,000 miles on it. We paid less

      than 1/2 of what it sold for new! There’s no way I could ever have

      saved that much out of our income in that amount of time. The only

      thing we have had to doto it in 5 years is change the oil, and the

      anti-freeze!

      Check Edmonds.com or one of the car pricing guides to see what your

      current car is worth. THEN check the Auto Trader and see what

      they’re actually selling for now! People are really shying away from

      SUV’s now because of the $4 gas.
