I agree with this. Since you have the option of using your daughters car, I say go for it. That money will really help, especially since you dont know when you'll find work again.

I know where you are coming from. DH lost his very good paying job 2 months after be bought our house and was out of work for a year. Now 3 years later we are still trying to play catch up because he has yet to find a job that pays anywhere near what he made before.

Your list of replacement cars look good, the two best cars we've had are Toyota's and Honda's. If you decide on a Honda definitely have your mechanic check the timing belt. I had an Accord and that was the only thing that ever broke on it, apparently they must be replaced on schedule.

Good luck to you.

This is tough. I would probably keep the Highlander but admire you for taking initiative to make the change. Can you ask your mechanic if he knows of anyone who might have a good car available?

My Honda Element has over 195,000 mi on it now. I hope to keep it for another 100,000. I wish it was a 4 cyl so my gas mileage was better though.

What you might do is actually go look at a couple of the cars that are listed. You are definitely doing good by looking at Honda's, Toyota's. They are reliable and last a long time. These 2 cars are pretty much what all my family has been driving for years and most of us still have at least one of our original ones with thousands of miles on them. If you have a good mechanic with you, that is a plus! There are people who are selling really good used cars. If your mechanic is with you, then he can help weed out the good from the bad. You might also check with your insurance people, it could be your insurance could be a little less with a coupe vs the Highlander you have now. Also gas mileage might be a bit better so that would be a savings as well. I think I would do the same thing. Good luck!

Well...I decided to keep my car. I know it's dependable and that's very important right now.

I had an interview at a vet's office today. I really don't know how it went. I get so nervous in interviews now that it makes me feel less confident and I'm sure it comes across to whoever is interviewing me. (I never used to get nervous. I guess I'm just feeling desperate and more than a little vulnerable right now. ). I used to have so much confidence in my abilities. I used to go on interviews for fun. I'm just not there anymore. Not working and not being able to find a job sure affects your psyche...

I feel the same way you do about interviewing. When I'm nervous, I feel the best is to be honest and say I am. Hope they will see the REAL YOU, how kind and capable you are and hire you! Will say some prayers!
