found a car and got set up with something today very practical. with the insurance money i got, i was able to put a 1/3 down and finance the rest. seems cruddy but realistically is good cuz the rest of the money i did not use on this vehicle i plan to sit on until i decide to go back to work, so dh doesn't take the brunt of it all.
anyhow, i got a 2004 kia sorento. i think i chose very practical for a baby on the way. and especially living in wv the 4wd will be a blessing. i think i could love this car because of how spacious it is and the 4wd offroad abilities....posted a pic, let me know your thoughts.
