Long-term car rental costs (2 months)

We're going to New York from Sep 1 to Nov 1. Need a minivan for two months.
Budget has a Dodge Grand Caravan is $3900 for the two months. Just wondering if this price is "normal" or am I looking at completely the wrong thing. Maybe there is another system for a 2 month rental, like a lease or something?

Maybe purchase a suitable, used vehicle, then sell it when you no longer require it? You should be able to pick up something made in around 2010 and in good condition for $8000, then sell it of $6000.

Kind of complicated for me, being I don't live in the States. Other options?

For two months, the price you show looks realistic. A quick look on my part only allowed a month and that was $2,500.

You need to spend time to do negotiation as the standard price from Hertz is around $2700 per month for similar minivan.
