Nothing like getting up at 3:45 AM with a sick toddler to start the day you were planning on trying to get a deal on a new car. To say I'm fucking exhausted at this point would be a fairly large understatement.
But things ended up going alright. We had a Journey in mind and we went back to the same dealer we got the caliber from since we had a positive experience last time. It got stressful b/c there was a little more pushing/pulling to actually get a number we could live with as far as trade-in value/MSRP of actual car, but we got there eventually. And we just drove home in a huge SUV, something I never thought I would say.
