I Got My Car
August 12, 2017 6:45pm CST
It may not look like much but I did get a great deal on it. It is a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. There has only been one owner, miles are low, AC and heater works great, body is in good shape and the radio rocks. I looked at many newer vehicles but we found things wrong with them. I didn't want to buy something that would nickel and dime me to pieces. My son and I both drove it, he checked the tires, brakes, engine among other things. It is good and solid. They had a price on it but told my son that they would take less and told him the price. When he told me I said that I was going to offer less for a little play in between. They took what I offered. They did have a $300 dealership charge that they waived. All in all I got this car for less than what I received for my totaled vehicle. It is good and sound and I think that I came out the winner. They even delivered it to me.

That is nice. But the car is 17 years old now. I really hope it don't start giving you trouble. I am actually thinking about getting another car, I usually get new ones. But this time I am thinking about leasing instead of buying. Unless I find myself a 2 door, 1983 triple black Lincoln Mark VI. Then I would buy that. I had one many years ago and loved it. Wish I never got rid of it. But hey that is life. If I ever find one in mint condition, I will buy it right away.

@velvet53 Because of my work and moving all the time I think in 18 years I had 14 brand new cars. I got spoiled driving a car for a few months to a year and then getting another brand new one. But that was because of my work and having to move around so much it just worked out this way.

@Gillygirl True. That is why I am so upset with the Malibu being totaled. I pretty well knew that car inside out. Now I have to get used to a different one. It won't take long though and I will recognize a noise that I am not used to. Hopefully I won't have to worry about that.
