I have friends who will drive a vehicle until it absolutely dies on the side of the road. I actually owned one like this when I was newly married! It was before I had kids and we were actually in route to trade it in at the dealership. I died less then 3 miles away. It was humorous but frustrating all at the same time. A guy pulled up to help us, and then actually offered to pay us cash for it. We didn’t know if we would get anything out of it for a trade and we had the title in hand…so we did it. Looking back, that was SOO crazy!
Now I definitely would NEVER drive something that was on it’s last leg with kids in tow. I value the safety and comfort of my family more then I ever imagined. We spend the majority of our time either at home or in our vehicle on our way places and those two spaces will be comfortable and safe for them. If you live in a cold region, you probably have tires that accommodate the ice or snow. If you live in a hot climate then you know the value of the air conditioner! If you live in a rainy area, working wind shield wipers are a must!
Loving my family well means investing in a vehicle that will ensure their comfort and safety! If you are like me and are considering a new ride, check out Thompson Chrysler Jeep! You can check out their inventory online before heading to the dealership!
