I bought a new(er) vehicle yesterday. Me!
The gal who keeps her vehicles for-ever to the ever.
My current wheels? An 8-year-old Chevy SUV with 59,000 miles banked.
That’s right, lovies. I only have 9 – count ’em – 9 miles to the office :).
I travel, on average, about an extra thousand miles for work related “stuff” annually.
The only reason I’m buying “new(er)” now is because the kid needs wheels (and has the $$ saved to buy mine).
So … rather than find him a vehicle with a history unknown, we’ve made this one available at a most reasonable cost.
Which meant new(er) car shoppin’ for me – Whee!
I spent hours sleuthing the internet. I became best friends with Edmunds and KBB, and, oh I knew what I was after: 4 wheel drive, decent gas mileage, low miles and what else .. a rocking sound system!
I took a few new(er) vehicles for a spin. Like Goldilocks, some were too big, some were too small .. but this one? This one was just right.
It handles great. Has low miles. Looks snazzy. Comes with 4×4 capability to navigate our heavy Michigan snow. Gets good gas mileage. No scratches, dents or accidents.
What, you may ask, was my personal test?
Heh heh … Let’s see how he sounds in here……. Hooah!
Me and Elvis are picking ‘er up tonight…. Thank yew very much. 🙂
