No, we can't afford a new car right now but I swear we are spending so much on my car right now. I bought my car 2 1/2 years ago and I have loved it. I bought it basically brand new and it has been a great car. I never had a car car (only suv's) so I was excited to have a fun little car, but I just don't know anymore. About 6 months after I got the car it needed new tires. So, I spent $300 on just 2 new rear tires. Ok great, I thought I wouldn't be replacing those for a while. I was wrong. Monday my brother pointed out that I needed new tires so Jim and I dropped it off to get looked at. He was right, they said I need them now! So, we spent another $530 to get just 2 more rear tires! What in the world??? Since Mercedes have different size tires in the front and back you can't rotate them. Who knew? I sure didn't or maybe I wouldn't have bought this car. So, Jim and I have been contemplating what to do. We think the repairs and all should be good for a while so I think we have decided to keep it until it is paid off (2 more years). We will probably keep it a few months after that so we can save a little money. I love my car, but it is so expensive to keep up! I bought for a great price, but an oil change is $230 since it requires synthetic oil, I have to get premium gas which is not fun when the gas prices fluctuate, and any repair costs an arm and a leg.
WHEN and IF I get a new car, this is what I want...
Jim says these are just as expensive to keep up, so who knows what I'll get.
Sorry, I just had to vent about stupid expenses. Maybe I should just take the bus from now on.
Anyway, Happy Hump Day!
