I jumped into the fray -- and bought a new car.
My Honda was 6 years old and had about 95,000 miles on it.
Still ran good but was beginning to make a NotSoNice noise......... one of those OMG so expensive noises.
And I wasn't ready to shell out a couple of grand if I had to.
We did a bit of shopping -- and I got a 2008 Toyota Rav4.
The only downside is the 1 disc CD -- as opposed to the 6 disc changer it was supposed to have -- the dealership got amnesia and I just wasn't in the mood to argue.
Since I have no other major bills, with the exception of the mortgage, I thought 'why not?'
Might as well do my best to pump up the economy !
