It seems that our journey of finding a vehicle that can fit our budget will never end. We have one irresistible offer come mid-year and while our hearts say yes I am quite scared of all the monthly dues (read: debt!) that will entail. Though, financially speaking, if we really save and the flow of work is steady (which is something I cannot control) we can afford it. Though the car offer is not a Toyota Camry, it is perfect for a growing (getting bigger and older) family!
Of course, budgets for auto repair maintenance and insurance need to be considered but I am keeping it positive. With our current vehicle we need to
check engine light and maintenance almost every month. So in the long run, we will be able to save!
