I ended up with a kia soul. It was the only car i could find that i can even drive.
Nothing wrong with a KIA. The front wheel drive I inherited from the Breadwinner is a KIA Rondo (bought it new, only dealer that would even talk to us at the time). Stay up on the oil changes. I use Mobil 1 full synth.

I hope it's not here to stay. Going to be interesting to see how all this plays out. The manufacturers have a back log of incomplete 2021's. I'm sure these already have VIN's that Identify them as 2021 model year. It's almost time for 2022's to come out. Maybe there won't be a 2022 model year.

I got a 2013 f150 two years ago for what I felt was a good price. This year I needed some BIG repairs, new heads.
I refinanced rather than get a different one. It "Booked"now, for 8 grand more than I paid for it 3 years ago...
 I just sold my 20-year-old jet boat for the same price I paid for it 20 years ago.
Things are not going to go down it's here to stay.

I totaled my Explorer back in Feb 2020 Boss sold me his old 2 wheel drive Ranger to get me by. I had my issues trying to get it thru inspection due to it sitting unused for 2-3 yrs but I got'er done. This winter reminded me why I do not want to continue with a 2 wheel drive.
 I was shocked at truck prices. Vehicles in general really. Seems Covid has wreeked havoc on the new and used markets. Semiconductor shortages have stalled new vehicle production, thus driving up new and used prices.
 30K for a 7 y.o. truck with 150K on the clock ? Really ?? Talk about sticker shock ! Seems there are people trading in their trucks for more than they paid 6 years ago !
 The breadwinner repo'd the daughters AWD car we have been making all the payments on and handed off her front wheel drive to me. Now I can afford to wait a year or so, til this crap sorts itself out.
 Dealers often offer 0% for "well qualified buyers". Guess I'll use that time to bolster up my credit and be that "well Qualified buyer".

 :tickedoffI hate it too...
 Sorry to hear about your losses, our prayers are with you. We lost my wifes Mom JUST before the Pandemic. I think it WAS covid but no one was testing for it yet.
Had to sell her house in the hights of the Covid, what a nightmare. We got what we asked and it only took 3 months for the paperwork to clear. How you get some relief soon. D

I still check in almost daily. Just too busy/tired to respond. Still working 7 days a week. This Covid thing has life really screwed up right now. Very understaffed at work. Hard to hire any help when folks can sit home and draw un-employment + covid releif and bring in nearly twice a weeks pay when working.
To complicate things, We lost my Mother in law in Nov. and My Mom in Dec. Neither Covid related.
