Default My wife is making noise about a new car :(

We have a 2008 PT cruiser and a 2008 Colorado. BOTH ARE PAID OFF!!!!

Now my wife is making noise about getting a new car.
My income is the only income and I dont want another car payment
Now on the other hand, a happy wife is a happy life
Our PT cuiser does not seem to worth much, a little more than $6,000.
It just seems a shame to get rid of a good running car to get a high priced
econo box.
Just Venting

A Prius is for hippies that think they are better than you because their car gets such good gas mileage when in reality diesel cars get much better mileage and are far cheaper and much more reliable because the engines need to be built stronger to handle the high compression of a diesel engine.

Prius is the greatest scam ever created.

here's the only good prius picture i ever took:



on the other hand, if it makes your wife happy...... here's something to consider, a customer of mine that commutes 40 miles per day said by trading here subaru outback for a prius, the money she saves on gas pays for the car.

Maybe, but it's legal and I sure wish I had a nickle for every Prius ever sold.

I never heard of a diesel getting 53 MPG in the city.

Buy a toy you want, sure honey lets get a SRT Challenger and since we will get squat for trade in, well trade up to 3 cars! Keep the PT for winter beater.

Problem solved!

Your wallet can. A straight out deal should save you the trade in price of your pt. If not your not shopping at the right dealer. There is always another one ant the one closest still has to take care of you regardless. If they don't. Call corporate and they will in a hurry.
