Van back door handle breaks!

January 20th, 2009 at 05:57 pm

We use our 10 year old Toyota Sienna a lot. It is getting long in the tooth but I figure getting a few problems like the back hatch handle fixed is cheaper than new car payments.

We have to start getting a bit more money together for a new car. My car is 8 years old and I am shooting for 7 more years out of it. I figure if I do the maintenance regularly it will last me a goood long while.

I hate car payments so I will kepp saving till I have a goodly amount of the price of a car.

Well, in any case I have to get the handle fixed on the back door of the Sienna. The bills never stop!Big Grin

    Once my car is paid off I am going to drive it in the ground as they say. My goal is to pay it off and continue to make car payments to a saving accounts

    You know how people say "drive it until the wheels fall off"? We did. It is scary. But then we fixed it and are still using it!

    cptacek, I am glad you did not get hurt when the wheels fell off! I try and keep up with maintenance and repairs as best as possible.

    Amber, you have the right idea about socking money away!

    Driving the car till it does not run is my plan!WinkSmile

    I do like Amber does. I keep making car payments into a car fund after I pay the car off.

    Somewhere I saw a car with a stack of popsicle sticks serving as part of the door handle!
