Car buying is nutso and expensive
6 hours after leaving the house, we think? we purchased a sport FIT Honda for Dinah. Supposedly the top selling car in Europe and Japan... The humiliation of car ownership continues. more later. The color is called Fiji blue, snazzier than this blurry jpeg.
(early morning) She drove it home at 9 pm. We got a good deal. 0% on the loan, and they gave us $1500 for the PT Cruiser with 140,000 miles on it, a door that wouldn't open, the check engine light on, and a bum radio. Not to mention the dusting of a thousand French Fries and stable dirt. Then they discovered the car we bought had been already sold earlier that day, which was a big embarrassment for them. They had to get one from a dealer 50 miles away.
