MY NEW BABY!

OK, so my choices were:

1. Buy the brand new car I really wanted above and beyond all else even though I know there's no way I can afford it and if I miss one day of work, the repo dudes'll ambush me.

2. Buy a brand new car that I *can* afford, which is about the size of my trash can--the same thing I've been driving for the past 11 years and 170,000 miles. Not even a CD player in that thing!

3. Buy the affordable, used gently pre-owned car that I would've wanted above and beyond all else a couple years ago when I couldn't afford it.

I picked # 3.

I am soooo insanely in love, I just want to stand there and PET IT! :)

Nope, she has yet to be christened.

YAY!!! Congrats!!

Smart move, btw...I did #1 a few years back and then hubby and I both got laid off. It sucked having to take her back. (I voluntarily turned her in, instead of waiting until it was repo time.) But I LOVED my Prius.

Congratulations! I love new cars, whether "gently pre-owned" or not. It's so nice to have a change, and esp. to have a car that doesn't cause problems every few miles. Happy driving to you!

When my mom bought her red Peugeot 205 back in the 80's, she wanted to take it up into the apartment so it wouldn't get scratched and dirty in the street...
Congratulations!

You obviously made the right decision! I still pet Berta even though she's a van version of a jalopy. Vanlopy? She takes me where I need to go!
