Of course I’m talking about cars.
I would have driven my Mazda forever if she hadn’t become so grumpy and money grubbing.
I was in the market for a new car because my 9-year-old red Mazda3 hatchback with a manual shift was behaving very naughtily. She drank oil like it was water, chugged, puffed, hesitated and, in the end, needed a new engine.
The inside of my Mazda still looked pretty good but looks aren’t everything when we’re talking cars.
I went here and there looking for someone to take her place. I have been driving a red standard shift car for at least the last 21 years. I was ready for a change.
After doing a bit of internet shopping on yahooauto.com at the suggestion of a co-worker, I headed out after work to look for a used car with a hatchback.
The Chevy Sonic looked nice except the hatchback area seemed VERY small.
I had spotted a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic online at Enterprise Car Sales.
The back cavity of the Versa seemed a little deeper. Not sure if it was looking at the photos.
I asked if there were any other hatchbacks on the lot and there were 2: one aqua blue with black interior and the other royal blue with light grey interior. Both were 2015 Nissan Versa Notes.
I ripped the dealer sticker off first thing in the morning when I inspected the car in the light of day.
I picked the royal blue one. Automatic she is.
The sticker of a car has lots of information, some helpful, some not so much.
I had a good although long experience of waiting until they valued my trade-in.
I was happy to finally get it and drive home. A long evening after a long day.
I signed my name about 20 times.
Small but mighty, I hope.
Then at about 9:15 p.m. I headed home in my new blue-mobile.
She looks nice in her new home at The Glade.
Woo-hoo! Another item checked off the to-do list.
Why does it take so long to buy cars? We didn’t haggle over price. I didn’t need financing. I don’t get it.
I was not paid nor perked for this post.
