I feel ya man...work did away with car allowances, but I, obviously, still have a car payment....so I traded my truck in so the wifey could have a better car and not drive around a gas guzzerler (2017 Jeep Renegade)...

I, in turn, get to now drive a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport...

I drove a 2012 Honda Odysee until Oct 17. You do what you have to.


I know own a KIA Soul, get 34 MPG and smile a lot.

We're looking for what to get some CRVish for lil Croc.

I'll camp here until someone tips me one way or the other

3 years ago I upgraded from an 07 Hyundai Elantra to a 13 F150. The gas mileage could be better but I'm not complaining.

I'm contractually obligated to tell you that you should consider the Subaru Crosstrek for lil Croc. Safety, good gas mileage (though a 5-door Impreza is even better), and capable.

Best part is, you can get one used that still has a ton of life left in it. Let me know if you want more info.

Look at it this way... You know damn well you're not driving your last car. Meaning, you're going to trade your current beast in for a minty fresh one at some point. So just suck it up and go get you one of those "really good stuff" cars right now, while, of course, getting as much trade value out of the beast as you can. You probably can even keep your payments close to what they are now.

I’d post the pics here, but not sure how. Imgur doesn’t give me an option. Not one that I can find, anyway.
