New Car!!!!

So, its official! I am getting a new car soon! I have had 6 great years (with some not so great times) with the ole jeepster:

the jeepsters last Christmas!!
My jeep has been good to me - it got me through Senior year of high school, got me through college, and got me through a year and a half of teaching. However, it has been horrible to me as well - breaking down every 6 months. I cannot count the times I had to call my guy friends, dad, or any other boy who would help me when I was stranded somewhere. Half the time I was in Tuscaloosa and my dad would say, "What do you want me to do?" haha! It has broken down on the interstate, in the middle of intersections, and in numerous parking lots. It literally has a mind of its own! Anyways, the point is, the jeepster likes to break down alot. We have put WAYY more money in that jeep than it is worth! It is a 1992 and only worth probably $1,000. I am happy to say the jeepster and I are parting ways and I am getting a new car!!!! :) Ty and I decided on a car (even though I really want an SUV!) just because of money. I want to have this car paid off in 3 years and I need my payments to be as low as possible because I have rent, bills, food, gas, insurance, and LOTS OF LOANS! Anyways, I am ok with a car but it will take some getting use to! I know that when the time is right in the future, I will get my dream SUV (a tahoe!).

Here are my choices:

2007 Honda Accord

2007 Nissan Altima

2007 Toyota Camry

2008/2009 Chevy Malibu 

What is your vote? I can't go wrong with any of them but my favorite is the Chevy Malibu! They are soooo pretty on the inside and outside! I have driven all of them but the accord and they all ride very nice! Also, I can get a 2008/2009 Malibu for around the same price as a 2007 accord, camry, or altima. We haven't made a decision yet but I think I have my heart set on a Malibu :)

Any favorites? Do any of you drive any of these cars and have any opinions??? :)


  1. I'm so happy for you, the poor old jeep is a poor excuse for a vehicle! But, it's kinda sad that this will be the first time in 11 years that there hasn't been a Jeep Cherokee in our family!

    Hate to say it, but my LEAST favorite is the looks like a granny car to me :)
    I'm kinda partial to Hondas & Toyotas, but the Nissan Altima in that picture is really nice. I know I'll like whatever you choose & I'm sure Ty has done is research on the reliability of each car.

  2. How exciting!! My vote is for the Nissan Altima. I love the look of the car!
