DJ and I have been sharing a car for the last 2-3 years. While we lived in Milwaukee, it was easy for DJ to walk to the bus stop to take the freeway flyer downtown to work. Although it wasn't always the most convenient, it was great saving the extra money we would have been paying on car registration and insurance. Now that we live in Waukesha, we are still making our 1 car work, but we are thinking that we will probably need to purchase a second car in the next couple of months. So here's our dilemma: I am very used to the Toyota, but would not be opposed to a different make. We agree that we are not ready for a minivan, so that would not work, but we would like a good family car. We were hoping for more of a hatchback / small SUV type car. We would like to buy a pre-owned car, but we want to know it will last us for years to come.
If you have any suggestions, let us know. Thanks!
