We have come to the realization that it is not the right time to buy. It doesn't fit well in the budget, there's no obvious vehicle that we both agree on and are excited about, and the need is not urgent, so we're going to let this Fall Sales Extravaganza period pass.
We're both keeping our eyes on VW (about to be bought out by Porsche?) because they have been threatening to put out a new Microbus for several years now, and also because the '08 diesel models are starting to come out. Diesel is now lower in cost than regular, and they can make engines that burn cleaner & get better mileage.
That's all for now,
