We're going car shopping tonight to start pricing options out. We're thinking she might try to lease something small and cheap, just so we can be money-conscious now and start planning on me getting a new vehicle (probably an SUV) in the next couple years. When I was buying a new car, I registered with Truecar.com (just to see how it worked). When I came home from work that night, there were about 40 phone messages from dealers. And the phone messages continued for weeks. I didn't use True Car. I dealt directly with a dealer, and think I got a pretty good deal.
