I Went and Did It!!!

I haven't expressed my uncertainty about car situation on my blog. Primarily because I was torn. I've been rolling in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid that I had paid off a few years ago. It is the first car that I've ever paid off and definitely enjoyed not having a car note. The car, being as old as it is, hasn't really given me the amount of problems that one would expect. Overall, a great car and on top of that there was a little sentimental value placed on it because it was the car that my mom wanted before she passed.

So what's the dilemma? Well, the car is getting older and although never been a problem, in the last few months I had to pay $1000 for repairs and found out that there was another $1000 to go. Thank God, none of which is engine related and would appear to be non-on-going issues. So I toiled over whether I should run my Intrepid to the ground or get a new one. Running to the ground would mean some money to fix what was currently wrong with the car and the fear of the unknown. If I purchased a new car, that fear of the unknown would be greatly reduced if not eliminated but I'm back into a car note.

Well, long story short, I purchased a new car on last night. I immediately had buyer's remorse thinking about the payment but it is subsiding the more I drive it and realize the peace of mind that I now have. Plus I love it.

I love a coupe and Honda ranks in my top three favorites, so your Civic - in my favorite color I may add - is HOT! May you enjoy countless carefree years in it! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Thanks Cocoa. I am pretty sure that this will be an excellent car for me. I just have to get past making payments again. LOL

I have driven about 30,000 miles since buying my Altima - it's now worth about $5000 less than I owe on it ... and they don't seem to give a fuck that I'm still paying over $300 a month ... on a car that isn't worth it. So, I'm driving that bitch even if the hubcaps come flying off across the highway. Don't care ... if I ain't riding on discs, Jack's keeping it moving. So, I feel you on the intrepid ... nice new whip though.
