Kevin and I did something today that we have never done before in 26 years of marriage...
we bought a brand new car!!!
Seriously, it had 5 miles on it! That is pretty dang new.
The repair bills on our Hyundai Sonata have gotten to the point where it was better to have a car payment. Although, we are still going to drive the Sonata as long as possible. The car we'd like to park is the Suburban. It is such a gas hog! We figure our gas savings alone will make about 1/2 to 2/3 of the car payment.
So, this morning it was off to go car shopping. We did lots of research and narrowed it down to about 6 cars we were interested in. Then, we went to CarMax and sat in and/or test drove those vehicles. This led to my preferring the Ford Focus. Then we did some more research and found a great deal!
Now we are the happy and pleased owners of a charcoal gray 2014 Ford Focus!
