My boyfriend and I shared a 2007 Ford Taurus that we bought used at a dealership in 2008. We financed it and got GAP insurance and all that good stuff. We live in Minneapolis (which is pretty compact compared to my home-town of Chicago) and have shared it or used public trans to get around. The thing is that he totaled it last week. We have shared one car for the past seven years (a Ford Taurus before) and we don’t want to share anymore. We want to use the $6,000 check to buy two used cars. He wants to get a Land Rover type of car. I don’t care what I get or what it looks like as long as I have a 4-door that can put up with Minneapolis. We have both city issues like people just hitting you to park and the elements such as 16" snow storms. What used cars that total about 6k should we buy? Remember he wants some boxy-looking SUV thing and I don’t give a damn. Plus, I can drive stick but he can’t so I think both need to be automatic. We both have only owned Honda Accords and Ford Taurus’s in the past and we both are 30. In our search for used cars I think we are being a bit biased based on our past cars. What are good used car models and what millage should we be concerned about? I have been looking at cars up to 150k but I’m I being too conservative? We only drive about 15 miles a day!
I beater about $1200 and 1 decent car about $4800
2 okay cars $3000 a piece
I okay car about $2500 and a good car for $6000 w/ financing
1 really good car and we still share
What should we do?!?!?
