    Need A New Vehicle

    Well my weekend had good news and in the toilet tank, bad news......

    first the good. as some of you know I have a dog, PONSONBY, that does agility competitions. well he went to the nationals this weekend and placed 3rd in his class. out of all the dogs there, only two of them qualified 9 out of 9 runs and Ponsonby did 8 out of 9 missing the last one by 1.32 seconds. not bad for a 7 year old dog.

    the bad news. on the way home I got that fateful call that all hubbies love to hear, "the van broke down" seems like the oil pump quit and it burnt up the motor. so now i got a big yard orniment.

    anyone remember that commercial where they are in a big white area and say "I need a new car" and they all come zooming out? what company is that for. cause "I need a new/used van" and need the website, tried google and dogpile and can't seem to find it. thanks for the help. PM me if you want with the info.

    Have you tried www.autotrader.com ?
    I THINK that's the one in the commercial, but even if not, its a great resource on car values, ratng, etc (new and used)
    Good luck!

    I'm not sure if this is the one you are talking about but my son found his Mustang on www.autotrader.com.

    We've used www.carsoup.com

    If you're shopping for suggestions, I have a Toyota Highlander and I love it. (although I'm hoping to trade it for one of the Highlander hybrids that are coming out next year if I can afford it).

    Another GREAT website to find cars is www.autobytel.com

    My sister in law's class actually did a report on these websites, & autobytel came out on top with pricing & service provided etc. I had never heard of it before, but decided to try it & I will definitely be using it again if I need another car.

    Good luck, I hope you find a great deal
