New Job Start Date; Bought an AWD Vehicle

August 3rd, 2017 at 06:03 pm

I am starting my new job on Monday, August 21. I will work at my old job until Friday, August 18. I have an awful lot to do and not much time in which to do it.

Last night, I browsed CarMax's website. The lot right here in my town had an 08 Honda CRV with 82k on the odometer and they were asking 13k for it. I went down to see it, and it is clean as a whistle and nicely equipped. They offered me 6.5k for my car. So, I signed the papers and drove home in the CRV.



It's the blue one. (The newer grey one to the left belongs to my co-worker). It is nice enough, will do the job, and the price was right.

I put nothing down but the 6.5k. I chose to purchase an extended warranty to 150k miles. I've never purchased an extended warranty before, but I opted for it this time. I financed the remaining balance due at 3.95%, and plan to pay in full when my house is sold.

    I have an 07 Odyssey and love it. My next vehicle will probably a CRV, or something similar to it when we go to purchase again.

    I had an Odyssey when the kids were little. I believe it was a 96 which ex-h and I bought in 98. It was a great car; we went all over the place in it.

    My goodness, that was nearly 20 years ago. It sure doesn't seem like it. Smile

    Congrats on the car!

    My next car is going to be a CRV. I really wanted to get a used one, but DH is firmly set on new and not budging. I understand his logic because the redesigned one has incredible safety and automatic driving features that will make my commute a dream, but I'm really dreading getting back into a car payment after all this time.
