Car confusion

It has now been over 2 months since we were in an accident in our 2006 Honda Odyssey. The repair totals are now about $18,000, that isn't a typo... $18,000. Plus $41/day for a rental van = $2500+ taxes. We were told that the rental direct bill will be cut off on Friday and we are hoping to get the Odyssey back by Thursday or Friday afternoon. We will then trade in the Odyssey (hopefully) for a 2006 or 2007 Kia Sedona, the vehicle with the highest overall safety rating. We love the Odyssey and it served us well but we do not want to drive a vehicle with that much work on it. The Kia is a better choice financially but we do miss the luxury of the Honda. Our rental is a 2007 Sedona - so we have had possibly the world's longest test drive! We are pretty open to any color and extras - we just want the best deal on a safe van.

What an ordeal! It'll be good to be back in your own vehicle again. Happy shopping!

Oh eek! What a pain! (And I vote for red too...and so does Isabelle, who keeps trying to get us to buy a red car, ever since I tolder her that they go fast! :) )
