seems to be the season for car questions. I have an 04 Chevy venture. i bought it almost new and own it outright. Haven't had a car payment on it in years. It has it's share of rust on the bottom from winters gone by but has never been in an accident and it has one very small blip in a door which can be suctioned out and one ding on passenger side door from some inconsiderate who opened their door into it. It has never been in an accident and never needed any major repairs. The wipers keep breaking, motor, blades, everything. The back wiper motor broke last week and I have to make an appointment to have the front ones fixed again this week. the van has 123,967 miles on it. I am torn whether or not to buy a new vehicle. I want/like the Chevy Traverse. It seats 8 (as does my van) and comes with all the options I would like. I would have to have it custom ordered since nobody within 500 miles carries the 2LT, never mind having the sun/moon roof option in it. I know I will be driving this another 8-10 years. My DH just got a raise that will cover the monthly payments to finance it but I am unsure if I want to jump into it right now. And by jump, I mean that I have been looking at this vehicle for the last 2 years, since it came out. Before his raise we were doing great financially so this really is a bonus. He says yes, do it. We have great credit and hopefully can get the 0.0% financing and get it paid off sooner. What do I do ?
