This staying at home thing is making it harder to find a slice to write about for my day. Currently, we have 2 cars for 3 drivers. That is not a problem at the moment since I have nowhere to go and both my daughter and husband need to go to work. I wrote about this yesterday, but someday soon we will hopefully need another car. My DD 2 would love a vehicle of her own. I have seen some used cars advertised for between $3000-4000. We have never purchased a used car before except from a dealer. My daughter has the idea that the refund from her room and board along with the extra 2 months of working might be enough to purchase one of these cars. I love this idea, but at the some time, I am really worried about the quality of a car purchased for this price. She is hoping that when she returns to school in August that she will have her own vehicle. I agree, that it would make things easier especially at breaks. No 7 hour drives to bring her home for a week or so. Hopefully, we will have a few weeks to consider this and see what happens.
Anyone have any advice regarding purchasing one of the older cheaper used cars?
