So we bought a minivan yesterday. This one right here.
I think we got a great deal - it's older, a 2001, but with only 28,000 miles on it. The final negotiated price was $8,500 - of which we had $4,785 in cash (thank you, tax return). The rest came from our home equity line of credit. I know, I know, but I think we can have it paid off in the next couple of months, since:
- We still have one of our cars to sell for $3,000-$3,500 (you want a slightly used Dodge Stratus, don't you, yes you do! Haven't you always wanted to shout, "I drive a Dodge Stratus!"? Yes, yes you have wanted that.)
- We'll hopefully be getting a $1,200 tax rebate in Mayish?
