One of my kids got a used Honda Fit, which are pretty awesome in that they look like tiny boxes but somehow have enough room inside for the Tall Ones.
A Honda probably won't conk out on you. I'm fairly
certain that Honda engines are supremely reliable... and really, 2004 isn't that old this day in age. It isn't like the 50s - 70s where everything was a rust-riddled shitbox. My 'new to me' car is a 2012 reg. I actually traded a '14 in for it. Sounds counter intuitive I know, but the 'new' car has 13k less miles on the clock and is a heck
of a lot of car in comparison.
The wife's is a 2016 model, because she's a flash git. Bloody ENTJs.
I hope all the house-y stuff goes well for you. We moved in to this place with big ideas about doing it all up. It was a repo which needed tearing back to a shell. We did that, then got it back to 'liveable' just before daughterspawn #1 arrived. Since then we have been struggling to find the time to get the odds and ends finished.
I think we'll probably live in it and do it up a bit at a time for the next 5 years or so, then move the hell away.
