Is buying another car fun? nah not really :(
Spent the whole day yesterday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. looking to exchange our car for a newer one but our beautiful 1990 Fairlane which has been well cared for and looks really a big beautiful Regal Car (in our opinion) is at the stage where it needs a new transmission and once that goes things all start to need to be replaced and we will have to replace the tyres also very soon SO we have decided to upgrade and get into a newer car. All cars on the road seem to look the same these days I feel all silver, or white mostly. I know ours is also but it has been a well cared for car and it was put on Gas not long ago.. We have been proud enough of our car to have our name on our car for nearly forever....It has clocked up a few miles also but to be offered $2,000 as a trade in is sad to us. I feel for our friend :( but what can we do have to go buy a "bubble" which cars today seem to be. I will enjoy being able to park it easier of course (but we have always had a big car so used to that).
We had quite a few terse words because the twice we were going to buy a car at two different places the dealer said we had to test drive their car before they would give us a trade in and
drive away price regardless Peter and I both said "We will only have the newer car for a set price we have in mind to spend" but no have to drive the car FIRST but we were not happy with the base price either time so walked out after wasting ours and their time.
Back tomorrow to look at 4 we saw and were o.k. with to test drive aaround 2005 to 2006
It is a nightmare really as we have had a lemon wayback when and very scared to do that again..
have a lovely Sunday.
