I have always had decent cars...never new but decent. My parents got me a blue Sundance when I turned 16. This was my least favorite car, but after a small accident in a parking lot (not my fault, but who would have thought the guy could get out of paying for the repair by just disappearing), my parents bought me a gold Saturn. I really liked my Saturn, but unfortunately, my sister totaled it while I was studying abroad in France (love ya sis). Then they got me a gray Camry which I still drive today. It has been such a fabulous car in that it has needed very few repairs (I think I've taken it to the shop maybe twice), it has almost 189,000 miles on it, and it gets me from A to B. Granted, it is missing it's Toyota symbol in the front (makes it look a little ghetto), the paint is starting to peel off the top, and the middle seat belt in the back seat is gnawed in half due to a bored puppy on a long car ride (we still love you Truman).
Even though the car is still functioning, with the thought of our growing family, we feel like maybe we should get a little bigger car. Also, we've been able to save up money for a car, and who knows how easy it will be to do that in the future. So the question turns to, what car is the best? We are looking at the Toyota RAV and Honda CRV. We like foreign cars (thanks to my parents' influence), they are mid size but more room than what we have. Then I start to think, is it silly to get a "bigger" car that still only has 3 seats in the back? Will we just have to upgrade in several years once we have 1 or 2 more kiddoes? Oh the decisions. I'm sure I'm over-thinking all of this, and Kev does not act concerned, but it's a lot of money to spend (even though we are looking at used cars). Any opinions are welcome.
