I'm sorry, that stinks!
We are spending about $600 on two new car seats (2 Diono Radian RXT's) for DD2 and this new baby specifically so we can fit 3 across (the 2 new ones plus DD1 Britax Frontier 85) and won't have to take on a car payment. We already bought one. As luck would have it, my check engine light just came on and my brakes are suddenly sounding weird!
kmc217:DH's car is literally on its last legs and we are having to suck it up and buy a car. It is just not worth fixing all that needs to be fixed in his 2003 Explorer. I think we have found the car we want 2011 Ford Edge it fits 2 carseats and booster across well we do not want a third row, drives really nicely and is an improvement in gas mileage over his current guzzler so at least we know what we want. We are preapproved with a great interest rate so now he has to go tomorrow and talk a couple thousand off the top AND get them to give us what we want for a trade. I am so so so bummed to be taking on a car payment again but there is no option. It is really stressing me out to be taking on a new car payment just as I am going out on a very sparsely paid maternity leave ST disability ends up paying out about 4 weeks worth total. UGH.nbsp;
I like the Edge, they are really nice.
We've toyed with the idea of getting rid of my Escape. Our current car seats (which we have over $500 invested in) will not fit with an infant seat in my Escape. I've thought about buying the radians because they are skinnier, but I'm just really torn. It would be nice to not have two car payments but so far I'm not having any luck selling my Escape. Car buying is definitely stressful!
