What should I do with my new cars that I don't want?

Total 1st world problems...but I have a 2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid that we bought for the carpool sticker. My teenage daughter totally dented it against a fence. It costs $4000 to repair. Since the sticker has expired, my reason for wanting that particular car no longer exists. I would rather have a new car with better safety features. However, in 2017, I bought a 2018 Honda Odyssey because we needed it for carpool. Well, wouldn't you know it, a year later we are no longer in a carpool and driving around in the big minivan drives me nuts. Now, we have access to a vacation home in the mountains. We really want a AWD or 4WD so we don't have to use chains.

So....would you sell the Prius Plug-in Hybrid, or fix it first and then sell it. Or sell the 2018 Odyssey which only has $10,000 miles on it after 1 year?! Crazy to sell a new car? But I really want to sell at least one and get an AWD or 4WD. Thoughts?

    Oh boy …. you're gonna love this.

    There is an entire thread dedicated to those who can't seem to decide what to get, and, when they do get it, don't want it for very long. It's called Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous, and you should copy and paste your post in that thread, here:

    https://forums.edmunds.com/discussion/4011/general/x/chronic-car-buyers-anonymous#latest

    You will get lots of unsolicited advice, and we won't judge you for any reason why you want to buy or sell something.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!
