Car Shopped Lately?

We received a letter in the mail from a dealership that said they were looking for good used cars, so we thought we’d dream a little and check it out.  We took the car to the dealership and did some fun car shopping while we were waiting on the appraisal to come through.  Since my van is only two years old, the appraisal value wasn’t enough to completely clear our debt, so we decided not to sell it.  Even though we didn’t get a new car, my husband and I had fun and found several fun cars for us.   Unfortunately, we have bought “fun” cars in the past and ended up hating them, so now we know to be practical and look for money savings, comfort and qualities that fit our family needs.


While we were car shopping, we checked out the 2013 Toyota Matrix.  Toyota is known for their superb cars, so we felt confident about this choice.  The 2013 Toyota Matrix is a compact car that is reasonably priced to begin with, and even more so with the astounding Toyota Matrix offers and deals that are currently available.  You can easily find cash back offers, APR deals, lease deals, and more deals currently being offered by Toyota dealers.

The Toyota Matrix gets excellent gas mileage which makes the savings on this car ongoing.  Right now you can find great Toyota Matrix offers on sales and lease prices, and then continued savings by its fuel efficiency. There are two Matrix models available. The Matrix L comes with a 1.8-liter 4 cylinder engine, and the Matrix S with its more powerful 2.4-liter 4 cylinder engine. Both come standard with 5 speed manual transmission, front wheel drive, electric power steering, and front and rear disc brakes. Their safety features include six airbags, 3-point seat belts for all passenger seats, anchors and tethers for child car seats, child protector rear door locks, Tire Pressure Monitor System, and more. There is no denying that the 2013 Toyota Matrix is a fantastic car available at a great price, but sadly we just aren’t ready to bring one home yet.
