Just purchased a 2013 F-150 with EcoBoost. It had 10 miles on It when i test drove it, and the dealership was giving $9500 off (would have been $11k if I was trading in). I found the truck I wanted, got another $1000 off, and that was good with me. First tank of gas I averaged 12.5mpg- not too thril...

Sounds like you've pretty much made your mind up, but one more thing to consider- tall ceilings make voices carry, i.e. If your kids are screaming, the screams/noise will echo more with 11-12 foot ceilings. My next house will probably have 10 except in the formal living room, where I'll go 11 or 12....

Car down payment
Before that, only the housekeeper and babysitter, so I wrote about 3-4 checks/month.

Another option would be to use one of those p2p lending sites. The interest rate will probably still be high, but maybe not as high as with a bank/dealership.
Not sure if any of them are good, but it's worth a shot....
