What is one of the most stressful and fun things to do as an adult?  For me, it’s car shopping.  We had to do just that earlier this year.  Our minivan went in for routine maintenance this past spring, only to get a 3 page report back stating this was wrong, that needed to be fixed and oh yeah, 20 other things needed attending to.   I suppose at this point, that is neither here nor there now that we have a new minivan to cart our family around, get groceries or just take a Sunday drive.

Car Shopping

So with that weighing on our minds quite heavily, as well as our checking account (potentially), we came to the decision that we would rather put money into a new vehicle instead of a vehicle that was over 10 years old.  Would we be in the same spot this time next year?  Perhaps.  We did not want to find out.  As difficult as it is to make a large purchase or make that monthly payment, looking back, we did the right thing for our family.


Even with making the decision off of our shoulders, we still would have the extra payment each month.  What an amazing blessing it would be to win the new car face promotion where would pay off your (should you be the winner) car loan up to $25,000~!!

Can you imagine winning the contest?  I would be ecstatic!  I’d definitely have a new car face that would look much more relieved and happier than my reaction this past spring! That’s for sure.  A lot of people know that takes the craziness out of car shopping,  but with this new car contest, it would take such a weight off most anybody.

  3. I certainly get putting the money into a new car! I have a 1997, but it just keeps going. As long as we are status quo, I guess I’ll keep it, but once the big things need to be replaced, I’ll have to say goodbye to my long time pal. That would be cool to win this contest as it would make buying a new car arrive that much sooner because I wanted to wait until the current car payment is paid off!
