Buying A New Car
This past month we made the last payment on my car, actually it’s a mini van. I am excited that once again we have a title to a vehicle. This will make the third car since 2004 that we’ve paid off and received a title on. The car that I had before my typical mom car (a mini van) was a white sporty Grand Am. I loved that car but it wasn’t the best thing to be driving with teenagers. My daughter always had several friends over and more often than not, I was the one to drive them around. I didn’t mind but the hard thing was trying to fit 5 teenager girls “safely” into it. This lead us to give up a paid in full car, and trade it for a mini van.
Now that my car is paid off, we’ve thought about getting a new car. There are a couple of things that we need to decide, one the type of car we want and secondly should we save the now freed up money instead. Decisions.. Decisions.
Until we’ve made up our minds on what we’re going to do, I’ll keep browsing online at the cars that catch my eye.
I have always loved Infiniti and the look of their cars, and after trusting my good friend Google I landed on an Infiniti dealership site, and fell in love with their IPL (Infinity Performance Line) G Coupe, there is something about the way it looks that caught my eye. It’s classy with a little spice? I also love the Infiniti M37 Sedan, and the G Convertible.
Excitedly I called the hub’s over and showed him the cars I liked. We all know how the guys get when it comes to cars, they want all the specs etc. After looking at gas mileage, under the hood, the extras etc. he smiled then said “hey Deb, you do know you’re looking at Infiniti Los Angeles right? Not wanting him to get the last word, I had to throw in my own smart ass comment and said “Yep, I also looked at Los Angeles used cars, thought we’d drive up and get my new car.” He just shook his head and smiled, as I stuck my tongue out and threw in “of course I know the dealership is in Los Angeles, but I was only window shopping for now.”
We still haven’t made a decision on getting a new car or saving the money, I’ll continue to window shop and show the hubs the cars I like. Maybe tonight to get back at him I’ll pull up a mustang (one car he’d never think twice about, since he loves them) and tease him with it. HA! I can hear it now. The conversation would probably go like this ” Hey babe, why don’t you take my car, we trade in your car, and I get this one (which would be a loaded mustang) for me.” *evil grin* I love teasing him.

Do you have a title to one of your vehicles? When you decide to buy a car, do you go new or used?
