replacing it isn't a problem, i'm decently car / truck savvy and can do minor things, i just haven't ever messed w/ finding parts for his suv, and didn't realize how much of a pain it'd be  :-\

his is a '04 suzuki vitara, v6, 4 door, 2wd.  i haven't looked at sam's, i will though, esp if it saves money!  our note on it is $395/month (yeah, ouch) but we only financed it for 4 years.   i will stick to chevy's and fords from now on though  :-\

My hubby and I have five vehicles. His truck is a 1987 Ford Bronco 4WD. He had a few choice words about anyone who would let a vehicle sit that long without starting it.  At the very least the fuel got stale and is probably formulated for the wrong season.

Here is the safety issue: if you had to, in ten minutes could you have all the kids and pets loaded up and be pulling out of the driveway?  Well, with only one vehicle, if he is not home you can't. 

Say things like, "Do you want us to burn up in a wildfire/drown in a flood/get twirled away by a tornado/get covered with lava/fill in your own natural disaster?

On the financial side, with three kids you could be putting that truck payment into their college fund.

We get the wildfires and the occassional flash flood and it takes me at least half an hour to get all the crates and dogs in a truck.  Fifteen minutes of that is strapping Cody Newfoundland to the dolly and winching him up the ramp into the back of the truck.

Best of luck with your 4th kid.  :)
The canine kids:

     Wally Italian Mastiff
     Zita Italian Mastiff
     Sparky Chihuahua
