Ugh, this vehicle thing is frustrating me. I need some car buying advise. We need to sell our car now, unfortunately it’s worth less than what we owe on it, go figure. I just don’t know how to go about this all. I’m scared the car isn’t going to sell before the baby comes. I don’t know what to charge for our car because it comes in so many different models and whatnot. In 99 VW’s made the older version Golf GL and GLS and then started the new line of Golfs that were the GTI or whatever. We have a GLS. It’s hard to find one online on a Canadian website that’s the same as ours with the same kms and features. GRRRR. Anyway, I think we need to sell our car, get a loan to pay off the buy out of the financing and then start fresh with financing a new car. I noticed today that we’re paying more than 2 bucks a day in interest on our damn car and it’s really bothering me. I don’t wanna buy a vehicle and pay THAT much on it!! I wish I was rich! Someone want to buy us a car? I’m wondering if it would be smarter in the long run to buy an older car for the same amount we sell our car for so we don’t buy out the financing and just work on paying it off. I dunno. What I do know is that fitting two kids into our tiny golf isn’t going to work. The single stroller hardly fits in the trunk so I know the double stroller wouldn’t at all! AHHHH. Anyway, I’m sad that our car isn’t worth as much as we owe on it. I guess that’s what you get with those high interest loans. We have actually paid almost as much as the we bought the car for which sucks…unfortunately we still owe more than what we’ve paid. Grr. Is there every a smart way to finance a car? Anyway, I think it’s just the stress of selling it and then finding a van for us right after we sell because we can’t be without a car and just the whole debt thing that’s getting to me. I just don’t know the order in which we should do everything. Car sure aren’t an investment whatsoever. Just a stupid liability that you need. Anyway, I think tonight I might wash our car and perhaps work on getting it cleaned on the inside a bit. Once clean I’ll stick a for sale sign on her and put an ad in the buy and sell and on a few sites online and we’ll see where it goes. So many people have black Golfs so I’m sure there’s other people out there who want to buy a black Golf, I sure wanted to…I thought we’d have it for years but I guess space becomes and issue when you have a bunch of bratty kids. In the van we want, the from centre console folds down so you can swing your legs around and whack em when they’re being annoying…of course I wouldn’t do that, but it’s nice to know there’s the option…ha ha.
Anyway, if anyone knows how to do all of this please help. If anyone wants to buy us a car just let me know ;).
**note, I’m not buying a NEW van…just a new to us van 🙂
