Getting a “New” car

It’s time for us to get a “new” car.  “New” is in “Quotes” because we’re actually getting a “slightly used” or “not new” car.  “Very used” may be another option. The big question we’re dealing with right now is how to haul the two of us and two car seats around but not get a mini van.  I don’t fit in mini vans, at least not for more than 10 or 15 minutes.  I end up seeing 1/2 road and 1/2 ceiling of van, as they’re not built for average height (6’5″) individuals like me.This puts us on the market for one of those earth-hating, gas-guzzling right-wing SUV’s. The choices are between a GMC Suburban and a Ford Expedition.  I have paid for CARFAX and they both look good.  One has more miles but the other is heavier-duty and better built.  So we’re debating as we go, doing our own Consumer Report*, if you will.  By tomorrow, this whole thing will be over and our garage will be full of 2 running vehicles.  I can’t wait, either.
