Looks like the insurance settlement means the Corolla is going away. Ballpark budget of 5k to get the Mrs. a new daily she will feel safe transporting our kiddos in, requirements below.

2 car seats, one front facing and one rear facing at this time.

Reliable, and cheap to maintain.

Must be in good cosmetic shape as the Mrs has a home based business

Transmission doesn’t matter but her last 3 cars  have been a manual.

I may also give her the cx5 and drive whatever we find.
