    I'm just petrified we're going to get pregnant with another set of twins

    You know, they make many products to prevent pregnancy that are far far cheaper than a car. Just sayin'.

    As for the Ford, I can't really speak to the reliability, but I have considered getting one myself because they are pretty darned cheap on the used side. As are Vue hybrids, BTW. Anyway, that one is going to run you $6k-$6500.

    If you really are looking for a stopgap measure, why not the Kia I posted? If you keep your purchase price down under $3500, you at least protect your downside on most vehicles. If you have the cash on hand, buy private party and look for repair receipts. Then sell your Vue private party. Lots of folks would jump at a $1500 SUV regardless of the repairs needed.

    I buy and sell $3500 cars pretty often and never lose money as long as I take care of it.

    @indies‌ - That's a lot of miles on that particular vehicle. And having 2 owners already is not going to make the used car manager all too happy. Probably looking at $26k.

    On the Audi, keep in mind the CPO warranty only transfers to a private buyer. So it doesn't mean anything to a dealer taking it on trade. Learned that when I was selling/trading my A5.

    2WD or 4WD? Where in the country are you? How come you are looking to ditch it?

    What do you think? $22K?


    What is your end of lease buy out? I'm sure it is worth more. Wait for qbrozen to respond. You've come to the right place.
