This morning we went and did the drivers test for the van and it was great. So we ended up buying the van and getting a 2 year warranty with it as well. We end up spending $8,064.14 which is really good since we got a lone for $11,200. So we are taking a $1,000 from the old van that we sold and paying that towards the car loan. The Routan is working great, she is driving well and the kids love her. It came with two dvd players in the back of the head rests where you play two different movies. The screens have a few dead spots but are easily replaces once the kids are bigger for when we do more traveling but for now it'll do. All the doors are automatic and open on there own so that is great for 5 little ones in and out as well as just our three. We feel like adults now that we have done this on our own.

Yep, and buy then we should be ready to get ride of our Ford because we have had it for nearly 6 years so by then it'll be like 8 year since having it making it about 12 year old car. its a 2007 and we just bought at 2009. Depending on how the ford is running around that we might look at another small car for my husband to use for work.

@ShyBear88 that's good! My moms car was purchased brand new and it's been 11 years going fine! Most of the cars my parents own, we keep it until like 20 years :) But it's nice changing cars. My boyfriend and I just bought a brand new car since his is 5 years old now.

@infatuatedbby We take care of cars pretty well. Our 2007 car does need to be changed out for a new car here in a few years because when you try to drive about 60 it'll shake at least it doesn't shake like it use to because before we got it fixed a few months back when it would shake you thought the car was going to dye.

Thank you, we did it quite but we also did all of our home work before we bought it. We have only bought one other car from a deal and we had my parents there when it was made so this time we did it all on our own.

That's sweet to have a new car, I wish I had one, my old one has about gone to the dogs. Enjoy it to the fullest.

It's not new new, it's a 2009 two years older then our first car but a lot younger then our old van was which was a 2003. We will enjoy it while we can.
