Well, dh came home last night after they basically tried to get him to sign papers for this older, smaller car, that would have made it so we were paying MORE for that car than our current one. Um, no. So he told them to work it out and he's going in tomorrow.<br><br><br><br>
Charlie went to a different dealership tonight to see what he could do about trading in the car, etc...<br><br><br><br>
The dealership we are at is being more honest about it (he feels) and he came by the house to show me what he is talking to them about.<br><br><br><br>
OMG. There was a minivan out front. He swore up and down that he would NEVER buy or drive a minivan. And this is what he is looking at buying.<br><br><br><br>
These people are being so great about it, it is like we aren't losing the $$ we put into the car in the last 6 months.<br><br><br><br>
Fabric seats (not leather! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">) and LATCH on all rear seats. I didn't see/feel the Tether on the back of the seat, but it doesn't mean it's not there... could be hidden, or could be added.<br><br><br><br>
We shall see! I'm trying to figure out how they can sell us a minivan for the same or less than we are paying NOW (for our Toyota Scion XB), but it apparently looks like it is all good. Maybe it is a used, maybe it is just an insane end-of-year deal. Don't care, as long as we can afford it.<br><br><br><br>
(Ok, looking online and it might *technically* be a Utility vehicle, but it has the look and feel of a minivan.)<br><br><img alt="" src="http://images.mazdausa.com/MusaWeb/images/vehicles/gallery/MP2/pho_gallery_MP2_ext1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://images.mazdausa.com/MusaWeb/images/vehicles/gallery/MP2/pho_gallery_MP2_ext6.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><br>

He's driving it home tonight, but can't sign papers until the loan info goes through. Looks good!<br><br><br><br>
This is SO amazing of him. Seriously, he HATES minivans. Said he'd rather drive a wagon than a van. (and we talked about the leather thing last night~ I told him I did NOT like it at all, and would bug him about it forever... in a poking fun sort of way, telling him "mmmm, cow seats" every time I got in it, or something)<br><br><br><br>
He listened, and took it into consideration when looking tonight, and found something I'm much more comfortable with, even though it's going with something he is NOT comfortable with. (van)<br><br><br><br>
It looks, though, like our interest rate is dropping by 8%, which is AMAZING to have happen in 6 months... and the banks are closed now so they can't finalize paperwork tonight, but they are bending over backwards to make sure we can do this. We have to put $1000 from our cashed-in warantee with Toyota, for the Scion, right back into the Mazda, but that is no problem. They're even taking a post-dated check from us and waiting for our check to come to US from Toyota.<br><br><br><br>
They're selling us a $22,000 car, brand spanking new, for $16,998 or something insane like that! (hooray for end-of-year deals)<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, MUCH happier about this car today than yesterday's choice.
