“New Car Smell”

6/24/10 LL’s LIST “New Car Smell”

You realize that new car smell, is all chemicals….don’t you? Lol. After saving funds, breaking into piggy banks and adjusting my budget…I, yes, I for the first time in my life have purchased a new car. My long time mechanic father would be disappointed in the newness factor, but I offered and bargained all week for this car and got a deal. They say a new car loses $2,000.00 to 6,000 right away when you drive off the lot, I saved over 2000 and got the add ons that I wanted along with having the dealer meet me half way on the sales tax.….I feel I have an extra few years of security with a newer car, I will drive it until it rusts or safety becomes an issue. I’m used to getting used vehicles or clunkers that I’d pray wouldn’t break down on the way to college classes and all ages shows, I remember those days. I’m all grown up I guess, feeling a little selfish. Knowing my insurance will go up and I’ll have payments is a move I usually wouldn’t make, I’m all about freedom of restricting ones self from the cage of money restraints. I don’t want a lot, I just want to manage it well. I made room in the budget, got approved for a super low percentage rate for the balance of the loan I needed. The most important thing I feel is that I did my homework. In this economy other dealers and competition offer specials, ask the dealer you’re interested in buying from to honor such offers and you’d be surprised. Hell, I was and it worked. I’m thinking even more horsepower is needed in the next purchase….hopefully I’ll have towing capabilities for my future boat, kayaks and a big ole dog. Hahaha! Hope to see you out n’ about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! xo ~LL~
