Seriously folks, this is hard work having to find a car. Especially with:
– people not calling back
– Having to find something a little quicker than planned
– Doing research one each car you see listed
– Not having a lot of days off/time to travel to see cars
All I know is I want to be in a new car by the end of next week. I’m not asking for much. Five-speed is about my main thing.
Found a couple I am going to look into.
– 1999 Acura Integra
– 2000 VW Jetta
– 1998 VW Cabrio (soft top!)
There are a couple others I have circled in the Want Ad Digest I have to call on. Hopefully I’ll at least be able to call tonight and all. That would be bonus to be able to get a couple of calls in and have the chance to maybe make a round trip and see several cars on Saturday. And if I like one, want to buy it and all, get my ass up early Monday and go get it done.
I figure this is a car I’m going to have for the next 4 or 5 years. So I want to make sure it’s something I like.
For those that might read this today. Give me some feedback through the comments link here.
– 1999 Integra (38K miles)
Is it too old? In five years, it will be 11 years old. Is it worth getting now? Any word on these cars? Mileage etc?
– 2000 Jetta (65K miles on it).
Too many miles? Will it be worth it in five years? Look elsewhere? Thoughts?
– 1998 Cabrio (40,500 miles)
Once again, too old? Is it too much of a wuss car? Is convertable worth it, or too much of a killer on the insurance? Any other thoughts?
Anyhoo, that’s where I’m at. Still looking. The loaner needs to go back in the next day or two. I’m going to rent a car for a week. So my goal is to find a new car by the end of next week. With no days off besides Friday, which is when we leave for the state softball tournament. So my goal is to find something and then be up early on one of the days and get it done.
Argh. This process sucks.
