Looking at Autos

Gah!! Looking at the prices for vehicles, it really makes me wish I could get it now, instead of in a few months. I’ve got a feeling Josh is gonna go “with tax return”, XD. That totally and completely works for me, XD. That means by April, we’ll have a new car. And we came to a compromise on the Corolla: if it’s broken and basically undrivable, we’ll trade it (XD). If not, we’ll keep it, and he can drive it to work, instead of the truck 🙂 Totally works for me.

Did find one car I really liked:
2000 Toyota 4Runner Limited
Automatic, 3.4 Liter V6
Color: Black
Interior: Tan
Miles: 92,441
Briggs price: $14,495
NADA: 14,025
Kelly Blue Book: 14,145
