It felt like we were getting no where with the whole car search thing, so I just left it all to Eric. So last Wednesday morning he was all excited about finding something that he really liked, and he couldn't wait until the dealership opened to call and see if they still had this particular car. Oh yea, did I mention, up until this point we had never test drove a Freestyle, and the dealership he found was 2 hours away in Illinois.
When my husband is determined he gets the job done! He called, they had the car, he drove there, test drove the car, liked it, then called to tell me we bought a car. I will admit, I was a little nervous, mainly because we have never driven anything like it before, especially me, the one who will do 90% of the driving in this car. But he came through! I LOVE our "new" used car that we paid cash for, that's right...we held strong with no car payments. We are now a whole lot more broke than we once were, but we are a happy broke. And it has a sunroof, which I can use all of 2 months out of the year here in Wisconsin, but I still love it!
The only sad part about buying a car was we traded in my car, my very first car I ever had. It was such a good car, and we hardly ever had to fix it. Well, up until the end she was good, by the time we traded her in the A/C was out and hot air was blowing all the time, the brakes needed changed, and I am sure there were a whole host of other problems. We knew we were either going to sell it or trade it in, so we didn't want to pour a lot of money into it. And they didn't give us a whole lot of money for her, either.
Bye-Bye Saturn, you were a great car!
Hello new ride! We love you!
I feel like I need a canoe on top of this car :)
