YAY for possible new car! I love my dodges, my truck of course is my favorite, but DH Caliber is pretty nice to!

Thanks for the support guys! As stupid as it sounds, I actually need it.

My last car I bought for $2400, and it's the most expensive thing I've ever paid for. Even my trips to WDW were cheaper. The Avenger is A LOT more than that. So I'm having anxiety over it. I know, stupid. But it's a lot of money, I've been saving since I started working at 15, and I only work part-time (not a lot of full-time jobs around here). Plus my insurance is going to almost double (since I don't have collision on my Lumina), and I'm terrified someone is going to hit me.

BUT with all that being said, I think this is a great car. There are very few negative reviews and mostly it's wear and tear type of things or that the 4 cylinder engine doesn't have enough power.

My Lumina has been a wonderful car. I've had it for a very long time and haven't had to put much money into it until recently. But my mechanic says it's about time to get something newer because the Lumina is gonna just cost me more and more money. Just for example, I just replaced the rear brakes and then the parking brake broke. I have a broken sway bar and a shock that's going bad in the rear. And my tires will need to be replaced soon.

So I figure: brakes, tires, wipers, etc are things that will have to be replaced on any car. But the bigger things that can go wrong are covered by warranty on the Avenger for a couple more years.

But that all being said, we still have to negotiate a price, and I'm stuck on how much I'm willing to spend. So if they won't match it, then it's no good (but really they only have to go $600 off the asking price and give me $800 for my Lumina and we should have a deal). But I always have bad luck, so...

Anyways...

Erin: You drive the truck and DH drives the lil Caliber? HAHA What truck do you have?

Yes thats the way it is in my house! I have a Ram 1500 laramie edition, I decided I was going to go all out if I was going to trade in my mini van!

We do drive both vehicles, today he has my truck, but he use to drive 50 mile to and then 50 miles home everyday for work, so the car was cheaper to run! Plus I have the 3 boys and they fit better in the truck, so it makes sense.

HAHA It makes sense, and I should have known that already since I knew your DH drove that far. Silly me!

Laramie is the best, the only way to go. I always wanted a 3500 Laramie Megacab with Duallies or however you spell it.

Anyways, we did not come to an agreement on price. I want to pay $1000 less than they are willing to go. I even tried to do $500 less, and they won't even do that. So now I'm stuck and not sure what to do.

Since it's all past, I'll throw it out there. 2011 Dodge Avenger Mainstreet with 3.5L V6, 14,610 miles on it. They want $16,000.

Now I just have to decide do I want to spend an extra $1000 on it.

Hotel

So I'm apparently hard to commit to anything, so I put a room on hold at Stovall's Inn.

King room @ $614.58 for my stay.

I think I can get a two double room for $534. But I have the king on old at least until September 19.

Michele, I know it's not your favorite place. But it's close and inexpensive.

Just because I don't like it doesn't mean it isn't good. My feeling could be due to contributing factors too.

It isn't much further than Stovall's and I got a great deal on it. I got 40% off the regular price. I do love it a lot!! I especially love their breakfast.

40%! Holy! That would kick!

IDK man, it's like three miles away from Disneyland. That seems like it's a bit farther than Stovall's.

If you go with the directions from Google maps it is only two miles further from the parking structure.

The parking structure from Stovall's? I still don't know... Stovall's is less than a mile from the entrances. Two miles twice a day is an awful lot to be walking on top of the daily walking around Disneyland...

I like ART, and that is how we get too and from the park. I think that if you can cut across the parking lot across the street from Stovall's that you have a shorter walk. I know someone that used to stay there every year and he walks through the parking lot I believe.
